iOS 10 Beta 6 Now Rolling Out to Devs, While Beta 5 Heading to Public Testers

Unexpectedly, Apple has released the sixth developer build of iOS 10 alongside the fifth public beta build which are now rolling out to their respective parties. This comes just under one week after the company decided to release the fifth and fourth developer and public beta builds of the upcoming software update for iDevices respectively.

Other than bug fixes, security improvements, and stability enhancements, nothing else notable has been found or listed by Apple in the latest betas iOS 10. Of course, minor tweaks can be seen throughout such sections as iconography, however that’s really all visibly different between these new builds and the previous ones.

Already found in previous builds of iOS 10 is a new lock screen UI complete with a dedicated widgets panel, an all new Messages app, lots of improvements to Photos such as facial recognition and Memories for you to revisit past events, a Siri SDK alongside some slight tweaks to the personal assistant, an updated Maps app, an overhaul News and Apple Music app alongside the addition of lyrics in the latter, an official Home app to control smart home devices enabled with HomeKit integration, a much improved Phone app, universal clipboard, and much more.
Beta 6 may be one of the final betas of iOS 10 before the GM release of the update for iDevices begins rolling out. We may see a seventh build for developers alongside a sixth build for public testers before this time comes, however I could be wrong.

If anything we find notable is discovered in the latest builds of iOS 10, we’ll let you know.

To install beta 6 of iOS 10 (or beta 5 if you’re on the public beta program), head over to Settings > General > Software Update on your registered iOS device and tap “Download” when you see the option to install the latest build. You’ll then need to sit and wait for the update to install on your device, however that should be a relative quick process as the update appears to relatively small in size at just 81MB.
