Apple released second public beta of macOS Sierra and iOS 10

Apple released new public betas of macOS Sierra and iOS 10. The second beta came just a few days after the company seeded third developer betas for both OS. The new betas carry the same build numbers as Monday’s developer betas, with iOS 10 listed as 14A5309d, and Sierra sporting build 16A254g.

macOS Sierra brings dozens of new features to the Mac including Siri for the first time. Further, Photo app gets new object recognition and search features. Other than that, The new Sierra build includes changes to Apple Pay, Back to My Mac, picture-in-picture support for video, new Optimize Storage options for saving hard drive space, enhancements to Messages, CoreImage libraries, Installer routines, Mail, Safari, and Siri.

Just like in developer beta, iOS 10 public beta 2 also features a new keyboard sound, an Accessibility option for using iOS 9-style Touch ID, haptic feedback when locking an iPhone, and  improved Quick Actions for sharing apps. It also includes a number of design tweaks like a new Lock screen experience, a revamped Messages app with background animations, bubble effects, Digital Touch and a Photos app with impressive facial and object recognition capabilities.

Device-wise, iOS 10 requires at least an iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad mini 2, or sixth-generation iPod touch. macOS Sierra is compatible with a wide range of Macs, some dating back to 2009.

Both the updates are available to the beta testers who have successfully signed up for Apple’s Beta Testing Program. Those who want to be a part of Apple’s beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website, which gives users access to both iOS and OS X betas.
