Apple seeds iOS 10 beta 5 to developers

ios 10 beta 5

Apple on Tuesday seeded the fifth beta of iOS 10 to developers. Registered developers running the latest betas can access the update via the OTA mechanism in iOS, or as a standalone download via Apple’s developer center.

Beta 5 comes just one week after the fourth beta, suggesting Apple has entered the fine-tuning stage as it prepares for a public release next month. Beta 4 added new emoji, new keyboard sounds and several other minor tweaks.

Introduced in June, iOS 10 offers a number of new features and improvements. It’s compatible with the iPad 4 and later, the iPad mini 2 and later, the iPhone 5 and later, and the 6th gen iPod touch.

We are currently installing today’s beta, and will be sure to report back with any notable changes. If you spot something we’ve missed, leave a comment below or email us at
