iOS 10 Lock screen status bar teaser 001

Just 24 hours following the fourth developer-only betas of iOS 10, macOS Sierra, tvOS 10 and watchOS 3, Apple on Tuesday morning has made the latest beta of iOS 10 available to public beta testers who are singed on the Apple Beta Software Program. If your device is registered for public betas, runs a prior iOS 10 beta and has a proper configuration profile installed, iOS 10 Public Beta 3 should appear in Settings → General → Software Update.

iOS 10 Public Beta 3 and developer-only iOS 10 beta 4 contain the same features.

iOS 10 brings more than a hundred gender diverse emoji, introduces new keyboard sounds, removes haptic feedback when locking the device, brings back the date to the Notification Center sections, lets you use Quick Reply with full screen apps, aside from more than a dozen fixes and tweaks.

    • Steve Harold

      • Abhijeet Gupta


      • Yep, thats right dont upgrade for something you don’t even have to use

  • englishmike

    I downloaded the Delevoper one yesterday and it broke my message effects (shooting star etc.) and the public one has done the same.

    • Steve Harold

      It broke my revolver emoji

    How stable is iOS 10 beta? I’ve never tried betas before.

    • czbird

      Living on public beta2 for about 2 weeks and no serious issues occurred. Upgrading to beta3 now.

    • Chindavon

      Very stable.

  • Abhishek

    Anyone plz confirm about b612 app crash problems ???
    Does it fixed ??

  • Yujin

    Any weird bugs on this beta? I think at this time the software should be stable enough for people to jump in.

  • Chris Gilmore

    what was that weird “T” graphic at the end of the video?

  • Omar D. Plumey

    I need the bank of america app on my phone. Can anyone confirm that the new app version 7 works with this beta version?

    • Leonard Smith

      The updated BofA App works on the latest beta.

  • hoopihe

    Works the Plex app with this beta?
    Somebody tell me pls

  • edwilk55

    I really liked the haptic feedback when locking the phone.

    • Scotow

      Where ?

      • Eliijah Moss

        There is no way to enable it. They removed it in beta 4 (public beta 3 if you are on it). Apple is doing this to test out different features.

      • Scotow

        Oh … Ok, thanks for the info.

  • Eoin

    Has there been any mention of changes to keyboard shortcuts to make them closer to those of OSX? The main ones I’m thinking of are: Command+Click/Tap to open a link in a new tab in Safari
    Command+[ or ] to move between tabs in Safari

  • Scott Curry

    Anyone jailbroken that just gets stuck searching for OTA update?

    • If you’re jail broken you mustn’t update via OTA otherwise bad things will happen :O

  • Mr_Coldharbour

    How about the option to view Notification Center in widgets/today view by default like we used to in iOS 9 and before without the need to swipe down and then left to see widgets. Because I only use Notification Center for widgets and nothing else.

    Also, please, and option to disable Voice Control. I mean if I disable Siri, means that I don’t want a “voice assistant.” Simple on/off switch. Thanks.

  • Louie

    Anyone else having an issue turning off the stupid click sound everytime a key is pressed?

  • TheBoi23

    Will this work with my jailbreak?
