It’s now been almost a week and half since the WWDC keynote and the release of iOS 10 beta for developers. However, people are wondering when the specific iOS 10 public beta release date will be, and so we we’ll aim to look back at last year to see if we can offer a bit more insight.
iOS 9 was released to devs on June 8, 2015, and followed by its public beta release a month later – well July 9 to be more precise. Apple have already confirmed that the public beta release of iOS 10 will be available in the summer, and even said that July will be the month it will become available for download.
With this being the case, then there are a couple of possibilities. iOS 10 public could go live on either July 13 or 14th, as this would follow the same pattern as last year – although Apple could do things a little different for 2016, although we very much doubt it.
In that time we could see the release of iOS 10 beta 2 and possibly even the third beta as well because we know how fast Apple works with developers in bringing updated versions to iron out those bugs and to make some much needed fixes. One such issue that needs to be fixed is the draining of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus battery, as it does not last as long as it did with the latest version of iOS 9.
We should also see a few minor new features that we never got to see in the first beta, although we are not certain what sort of version the public beta will have compared to what devs are trialing.
