Apple Releases iOS 10 Beta 5

Following the launch of iOS 10 Beta 4 earlier this month, the company has officially released an all-new build of its latest and greatest mobile operating system, iOS 10 Beta 5 build number 14A5335b, to developers for download and testing.

iOS 10 Beta 5 brings some new features as well as other enhancements such as:

  • The iPhone 6 and 6s should now work properly with Apple's Smart Battery Case
  • Apple plans to reprocess facial recognition data in beta 5, so all named, favorited, and merged face data will be reset
  • There's a new sound (like a door closing) when locking the iPhone
  • The output icon seen in the Control Center, the Music app, and other locations in iOS has been slightly tweaked
  • The "Home" section in the Settings app has been removed from the iPhone, but remains available on the iPad
  • The new widgets panel (accessible by swiping to the right) now displays the date on all devices
iOS 10 Beta 5 is now rolling out as a free update through Software Update or via iOS Dev Center for registered developers.
