Apple Seeds iOS 10 Beta 2 to Developers

Following the first developer-only preview of iOS 10 which was issued following the June 13 WWDC keynote, the Cupertino firm today pushed iOS 10 beta 2 (build number “14A5297c”) to the members of the Apple Developer Program. The new software is available as an over-the-air download on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices that run the first beta. A beta of iOS 10 will be made available to public beta testers in July.

The first developer beta was seeded last month, and now Apple has followed up with the second beta, which will be one of many before the public launch later this year. The second developer beta is available either through Apple’s dedicated site for developers, right here, or as an over-the-air (OTA) update on iOS devices that are running the first beta.

Since the first beta arrived, it’s been discovered that there’s a Dark Mode embedded in the software, but its not as far-reaching as some might like. Here are a few other new additions to iOS 10 that have been discovered since the first beta was seeded.

iOS 10 highlights
iOS 10 includes a plethora of new features for both end-users and developers, including a huge update to Messages that delivers more expressive and animated ways to message friends and family, like stickers and full-screen effects, third-party support for Siri, overhauled Maps, Photos, Apple Music and News apps, an all-new Home stock app and more.

With iOS 10, Apple is taking advantage of the extensions architecture that debuted in iOS 8 to open up additional aspects of the operating system to developers, including Siri, Maps, Phone and Messages.
