Big bug fixes for Apple users and when to expect them

Big bug fixes for Apple users and when to expect them

Apple's much awaited iOS 10 for iPhones and iPads is slated for a fall release. As we inch closer and closer to that day, a few final tweaks and fixes are still being rolled out, first to developers, then to public beta testers before it is officially handed down to the masses.

(You know we mostly love iOS 10's new features. Click here to find out why.)

While the Developers' Beta Build 3 was issued on July 18, which included the new device water damage warnings, iOS 10 public beta's second build was rolled out today by Apple.

Public Beta Build 2 is essentially a bug fix release with a few surprise features like the option to unlock your device by merely resting a finger on the Touch ID sensor, bypassing the need to press it down first.

Along with this release, Apple also issued macOS Sierra's Public Beta 2, which includes cool new features like automatic syncing of the Desktop and Document folders to an iCloud account. WatchOS 3 developer beta testers could also start unlocking their Macs with their Apple Watches with this release.

Apple Public Betas are available to everyone but you will have to sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program first. To find out more, please refer to their Apple Beta Software Program FAQ page.

If you are already an Apple Beta Tester and your device is enrolled, just go to your iOS device's Settings >> General >> Software Update to download and install the latest build.

For Mac public betas, you can click on your Mac menu bar's Apple logo then choose About This Mac >> Software Update or simply open the Mac App Store and check the Updates to download the latest build.
