Public betas for iOS 10 and macOS Sierra now available

As we told you, Apple has just seeded the first public betas for both iOS 10 and macOS Sierra. The releases, which come just a few days after beta 2 of both software updates pushed out to developers, can be downloaded by members of Apple’s Beta Software Program.
iOS 10 brings about a number of changes, including a refreshed Messages app with tons of new features, enhanced notifications, Spotlight widgets, and much more. There aren’t quite as many changes in macOS Sierra, but it compliments iOS 10 nicely.

macOS Sierra offers a plethora of new features. That includes the ability to use Apple Pay, the company’s mobile payment option, from within Safari for partners that include Gilt, and other major brands. With it, users will be able to authenticate purchases on their desktop by using Touch ID on their iPhone.

macOS offers other new Continuity features, including the ability to unlock your MacBook –avoiding the part where you input your password– by having your Apple Watch on your wrist. Another big addition to the software is Picture-in-Picture support, which will let users pop out a video and continue to watch it while they navigate other apps behind it. The picture can be resized, moved around, and it will stay on the top of other apps as the user moves from one virtual desktop to another.
