The beta version of Apple’s upcoming mobile operating system, iOS 10, is now available to the general public.
you’ll have to sign up for Apple’s beta program, which will also provide Mac owners access to the public beta of macOS Sierra, also released today.
Though the developer preview is limited to those enrolled in the Apple Developer program, the iOS 10 beta is available to anyone with a compatible iOS device. Navigate to the beta website, log in with your Apple ID, accept the terms, and download a configuration file that will install iOS 10 on you gadget.
Be aware that beta software—even from Apple—means bugs and occasionally more serious headaches. If you have an older iPhone or iPod touch kicking around that you don’t use for day-to-day activities, consider using that instead of your main iPhone.
That said, there are some compelling reasons why you might want to get a head start on using iOS 10’s features, besides the ability to give Apple pre-release feedback.
