iOS 10 is currently available as developer beta. The public beta is set to arrive in July. Those who have developer account can easily install it. Even the ones without developer account can successfully install it on their iPhone or iPad.

Apple has termed iOS 10 as the biggest ever update. Barring a few bugs such as iTunes error 14, app crashing, the newest iOS version doesn’t seem to have any major bug.

Throughout our test, the latest iOS ecosystem has been found to be quite stable. Moreover, both tech experts and fans have appreciated its functionality.

With several exciting features, Messages app has got major improvements. With Digital Touch, Individual Read Receipts or the ability to write on videos, it has been primed to spice up messaging experience.

Personally, I have liked the option to play inline video in Safari on iPhone. Unlike earlier, you are not forced to go into full-screen mode. The best thing about it is that the video continues to play even if you open another tab or scroll past it.
