Garry Little | 23 July, 2016, 02:31

In addition to releasing the second public beta for iOS 10, Apple has also launched the second edition of the macOS Sierra public beta.

Apple iOS 10 public beta's second build is now ready to download for users, who have signed up for the updates.

To update your iPhone manually, go to Settings General Software Update, and install the update.

For MacOS Sierra, the public beta 2 brings a number of improvements to Siri and Photos app, which now includes object recognition, Memories and new search features.

This beta version is also being released two weeks following the first public beta release and some days after the 3 developer beta version was released. After the company had released the 3 developer beta version for the iOS, it took into consideration the customer feedback. However, there is one thing Apple's latest iOS 10 promises to do that even waterproof-Android phones don't to protect wet handsets.

After months of beta testing, Apple has finally released the latest OS updates. The update is scheduled to come earlier today around 10 AM. It offers new Optimized Storage capabilities for saving space on your computer's hard drive, and Apple Pay support when you're shopping in the Safari browser. After visiting the public beta website to enroll your device, click on MacOS tab, instead of iOS. Users can go to iTunes, and do a complete back up for the iPhone or iPad.

This new feature spells out convenience because it allows the MacBook users to automatically sync the desktop and documents folder using iCloud. No matter what type of software you're using, problems will be discovered and the best way to keep yourself safe is to keep your software updated as often as you can.
