iOS 10 Beta 3: Here Are All The Good Things

Apple has pushed out the third beta of its iOS 10 mobile operating system to developers. It includes a lot of bug fixes, stability improvements and small new features. Some Apple fans might be disappointed that new Dark Mode is not included in the beta 3. We know that the Dark Mode is coming to the iOS 10, but it hasn’t been enabled yet. The final version of the iOS 10 will be released with the iPhone 7 in September.

You can share links to apps with your friends

One of the biggest highlights of the iOS 10 beta 3 is that all the app icons support 3D Touch, even if the developer hasn’t enabled the Quick Actions feature. Apple has also included a haptic lock feedback that gives a gentle feedback tap when you lock your device, just to let you know that the phone is secure. The third beta also allows you to add downloads from Mail and Safari to the iCloud Drive.

The iOS 10 beta 3 lets users share links to apps with their friends. A firm press on an app icon shows a “share” option that lets you share the link to that app with your contacts. On the Health app, you can now share your diagnostic and workout data with Apple to help improve the app. Users can turn it off or on from Settings > Privacy > Diagnostic and Usage.

iOS 10 still needs further refinement

Other minor improvements in the iOS 10 beta 3 include an augmented reality mode for Pokemon Go. The flashlight is back again in the Control Center. It means you won’t have to reboot your device to turn the flashlight off. There is also a new keyboard sound. Now you can see which third-party apps can use Siri by going to Settings > Siri > Siri Support. In Messages, the OS doesn’t automatically crop images to a square in the image picker view.

Of course, there are a lot of things that need to be refined further. The Cupertino company still has a few months to fix the bugs and refine the software.
