If you’re feeling brave, here’s the iOS 10 public beta.
After only two developer releases, Apple has released the public beta of iOS 10 into the wild for public testing.
Apple started letting the public into its iOS beta tests last year. Before iOS 9, you had to be a developer (and pay $99 for a yearly developer subscription) to test drive prerelease versions of iPhone software.
As of now, Apple has released the iOS beta to the public in order to receive feedback from regular users as opposed to strictly developers. The iOS 10 public beta will install the Feedback Assistant app on your iPhone, which you can use to send notes directly to Apple.
Keep in mind that the beta is still a work in progress, it’s a good idea to back up your iOS device to both iCloud and iTunes in advance and there’s no official support from Apple should something go wrong. You won’t void the warranty on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, but there’s still room for caution.
As always, let us know what you make of the beta and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments section.
