    Apple today seeded the fifth beta of iOS 10 to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the fourth beta and approximately two months after first unveiling the new operating system at its 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference.

    iOS 10 beta 5 is available as an over-the-air download to those who installed the first four betas or the beta configuration profile and it's available for direct download via Apple's Developer Center.

    iOS 10 is a major iOS update with a ton of new features and design tweaks, including a new Lock screen experience with 3D Touch-enabled notifications, a more easily accessible camera, a redesigned Control Center, and a new widgets screen. According to Apple, iOS 10 is the company's biggest iOS update ever released.


    The Messages app in iOS 10 has been overhauled with features that include background animations, bubble effects, Digital Touch, handwritten notes, Tapback replies, predictive emoji, and a dedicated App Store, and Photos has gained new facial and object recognition capabilities along with a Memories feature for rediscovering forgotten moments.

    Over the beta testing period, Apple is tweaking the features introduced in iOS 10 to refine them ahead of the public release of the operating system. In iOS 10 beta 4, Apple introduced new emoji characters and a redesigned look for many existing emoji, a Control Center intro, new Accessibility features, changes to the Notification Center, and more. New changes found in the fifth iOS 10 beta will be listed below.

    iOS 10 is currently available to developers and public beta testers, with a full public release planned for the fall. For full details on iOS 10, make sure to check out our iOS 10 roundup.

    I hope smileys look better. I have had to change the beta back to iOS 9.3.4 because Microsoft apps do not play nice at the moment. :(

    Things were fixed.

    Release notes have only EVER shown SDK changes for the mostpart. Their intention is not to describe OS fixed or new features. You think you're being helpful, but you're not.

    Downloading.

    Apple shocks us again by quietly releasing newer beta firmware?

    Oh, hope camera app works normally and I need to check if that buggy Fate GO works properly in this beta.

    Very nice this new iMessage. I've only one problem... I know less and less people with iPhones... So who can I send too_O

    Maybe nice when you live in the US. But over here you have to look hard. Most are walking with Galaxy S7 edge :(

    Apparently Microsoft office apps work properly if you only use personal OneDrive account or just use it as a local document editor.
    Some of them does not work though, like office 365 app used for administrators to track office 365 service status.

    Turn off iMessage and choose to use other third party messaging app.
    iMessage is not the whole of Apple product after all.
    Sorry for my straightforward comments. :(

    Yes. It hasn't crashed once since I installed it. Two minutes ago.

    I don't think it is prematurely. I want to think as Apple has gotten closer to a final release beta releases went from about 2 weeks apart to 1 week apart in the past.

    Wonder if the signal dropping bug was behind this?

    I'm already using whatsapp. It's cross platform. I don't know why Apple is putting that much effort in a messaging app only few people use. I'm very happy that they do, don't get me wrong but there are so much other apps that need attention more. Unless they make iMessage cross platform :)

    Well, soon but not that soon--basically when the iPhone event next month takes place.

    True. Office 365 Business Premium subscription here. Using Word and downloading and editing my documents in the SharePoint cloud really annoys me since one time it will work and the next time you fire the app, you are asked to sign in and all hell breaks loose, because you cannot sign in at all. At least on 9.3.4, the apps work as expected with no surprises. I miss the snappiness of the 10 beta 4, especially the tweaked navigation animation speed..
