Apple today launched brand new updates to the iOS 10 Beta, the macOS Sierra Beta, the tvOS 10 Beta, and the watchOS 3 beta. The new betas come just two weeks after Apple announced the new operating systems at an event during WWDC 2016.
If you currently have the original beta build installed on one of your devices, you should be able to download the updated betas over-the-air via the settings on your device, or in the Mac App Store on macOS. If you haven’t installed the betas before and would like to download Beta 2, be sure to view our guide to installing betas here.
The new betas are sure to bring new features to all of the platforms, and we will update throughout the day as new features are discovered:
– New ‘Your Phone has been Updated’ Notification
– The Health App has been updated with the new Organ Donor feature in the news from this morning. The feature will allow users to become donors in minutes.
– Animation tweaks across the system.
– The Camera app now flips between cameras noticeably faster.
– App Store for iMessage
– New ‘Low Quality Image Mode’ in Messages settings.
