Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming iOS 10 update to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the third iOS 10.1 beta and more than a month after releasing iOS 10 to the public.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 10.1 beta from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile is installed. Public beta testers can download the update over-the-air after installing the configuration profile from Apple's beta testing website.

iOS 10.1 introduces a new "Portrait" mode for the iPhone 7 Plus that allows it to use the two built-in cameras to create shallow depth of field portrait photos with blurred backgrounds.


To achieve the blurred look, the image signal processor in the iPhone 7 Plus uses the wide-angle camera to create a depth map, dissecting the different layers of the photo to decide what to blur. It works on people, pets, and objects, but does require good lighting to achieve the proper effect.

The update also likely includes bug fixes and other under-the-hood improvements to address issues that have been uncovered since iOS 10 was released, such as an ongoing CallKit bug that has caused CallKit to function unreliably.

iOS 10 has been described by Apple as the "biggest release ever" for iOS users, with features that include a redesigned Lock screen, a Siri SDK to allow third-party apps to integrate with Siri, and a completely overhauled Messages app with stickers, a full App Store, Digital Touch, Bubble Effects, and more.

Other features include a dedicated "Home" app for HomeKit users, new facial and object recognition capabilities in Photos, and redesigned Maps and Apple Music apps. For more details on iOS 10, make sure to check out our iOS 10 roundup.

Please please fix the safari keyboard. It bugs me that I type something, use a character like a comma, and after hitting space it doesn't switch to a letter. It stays on the punctuation keyboard. Also, safari doesn't auto scroll comment boxes when posting replies. That's not a big issue since I can just zoom out, but for some it may bother them.

Hopefully this finally fixes the lag on my 7+ :(

I also have the connectivity issues that this release is supposed to correct.

We can only hope Apple finally addresses all of that.

Anytime I open the multitasking tray or close apps, I have a terrible lag between when I push the home button and the phone actually performing the task. My wife's 7 has no issues at all, it's very responsive. I also have the connectivity issues that this release is supposed to correct.

Can anybody confirm if this helps with the multi-tasker and home transition stutters?

pretty small update, I'm guessing this is the last before it goes public.
Well its like 450mb after unzipped so thats not too shabby.

[Edit] The build is only 1 up so yeah may only contain the connectivity fix.

Not for me, just installed on my 7+. I guess I just a have a faulty device. My wife 7 has performed great since day one. My phone has always lagged or stuttered when doing both.

Both the iPhone 7's I've had, as well as my wife's iPhone 6S, don't do this. I'm glad, that would bug the heck out of me.

I've had two iPhone 7's that do it. I've gone to a Best Buy and Apple store and seen it on every display device. It might be to varying degrees, but I believe it exists on every iPhone 7/+.

I am guessing this is the GM.

Since I went to IOS 10...turn it on and it demands my iTunes password and or Mac User and password....I would bet they won't fix that in any new update...makes too much sense to be concerned with basic operations.

Seems Safari keyboard is NOT fixed.

[Edit] only if adding like a comma after it does it change back. Still doesnt change back with just spacebar like it does composing an email. Guess technically its NOT fixed after-all. Sorry for false hope.

Seems Safari keyboard is finally fixed. Can now enter a single number and comma then space and it changes back or 2 digits and space and changes back.

Awesome, now to see if anyone else can confirm it's fixed. Also, is the safari comment box scrolling fixed?

I'll admit that the upcoming portrait mode has all but sold me on the 7+. I'll need to handle one in the store before I buy, but... it's pretty tempting right now.
