Apple Releases iOS 10 Public Beta 4

Following the release of iOS 10 Public Beta 3 earlier this month, the company has officially launched a brand new public beta build of its latest mobile operating systems, iOS 10 Public Beta 4, to the public for download and testing.

Similar to the recent iOS 10 Beta 5, iOS 10 Public Beta 4 includes:

  • 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 Public Beta 4 is now rolling out as a free update to public beta testers registered in the company's Beta Software Program.
