Apple developers can now get their hands on the latest beta versions of iOS 10.3, tvOS 10.2 and watchOS 3.2, which make it beta number three for each platform.
About two weeks ago, Apple rolled out the second beta versions of the three operating systems and like expected, the new versions come with a number of improvements that also include bug fixes, changes to the user interface as well as a bunch of new features for the iPhone and iPad as well as Apple TV and Apple Watch.
If you are part of the Apple developers’ team, you can download the latest iOS 10.3 beta 3, tvOS 10.2 beta 3 or watchOS 3.2 beta 3 from the company’s developer portal. If your iPhone or iPad has the correct installation profile, it is possible to download and install the latest iOS 10.3 beta right away – as an over the air (OTA) update.
While the first iOS 10.3 beta came with a bunch of new features for the iPhone and iPad, for instance, iCloud calls for Big Red, Find My AirPods, a Podcasts widget as well as some tweaks to the CarPlay and Apple File System, the latest beta 3 of the OS doesn’t seem to bring a lot. In fact, this is visible from the release notes, which means that Apple has only been working on bug fixes and performance enhancements over the past two weeks.
For the Apple Watch users, the new watchOS 3.2 beta 3 comes with a new Theater Mode that ensures your smartwatch doesn’t disrupt a movie in a theater by lighting up when notifications come in while the tvOS 10.2 beta 3 has a few tweaks to the user interface, among them faster-scrolling animations.
Given that the OS has just been rolled out, not so much of testing has happened. As a result, we’ll let you know whether there are new features or updates hidden somewhere. Keep following.
