    Apple rolls out second public betas for iOS 10 and macOS Sierra

    Apple has released the second public betas for the platforms – iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, a couple of weeks after releasing the first public betas. The second public beta brings the same features that were available with the third developer beta. Apart from usual bug fixes, the betas include new features and functions.

    The second beta for iOS 10 brings new keyboard sound, an Accessibility option for using iOS 9-style Touch ID, haptic feedback when locking an iPhone, improved Quick Actions for sharing apps, and more. It also includes a number of new features and design tweaks, including a new Lock screen, refurbished message app with effects and revamped Photos app. Maps and Apple Music have seen a number of tweaks.

    The macOS Sierra doesn’t bring notable changes when compared with the first public beta, however, it is a significant update that brings Siri to Mac and few tweaks to the apps and services.

    Beta testers who have already signed up for the beta testing program will receive the update over-the-air. Since it’s not a stable release and has many bugs; you’ll have to be careful installing the beta and it is recommended getting them installed on a secondary device.
