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

    iOS 10 beta 6 is available as an over-the-air download to those who installed the first five betas or the beta configuration profile and it's available for direct download via Apple's Developer Center (developers only).

    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 5, Apple introduced a new lock sound and fixed some important bugs.

    According to Apple's release notes, iOS 10 beta 6 fixes a number of bugs. Search hints now function as expected in the Messages Store, Siri offers an appropriate response when a request requires a removed app, a bug that caused sticker pack apps to be blank has been fixed, and more. Reports from beta testers suggest an ongoing bug affecting the dock on iPads running iOS 10 has been resolved.

    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.

    As I think about this and back to the keynote, it almost seems a bit overkill adding all this stuff to iMessages. But I suppose I don't have to use it either. I wonder if any of the more advanced things can be disabled so others sending me these things come through more normal.

    Does anyone know if the iOS 10 Photos app has Faces again? I am not sure why Apple would remove this kick but feature, and I hope it comes back.

    Can anyone report on Microsoft apps sign-in working with this version? This is the ONLY reason why I am not able to use it as my daily driver. Wonderful performance in every other dimension, but micro softy got broken and hence.

    As part of the release notes for Beta 5, Apple made it clear that the faces functionality was not being removed, but that any previous face data was being deleted and must be reanalyzed.

    Correct me if I'm wrong. Isn't beta 7 usually the GM or after that? I decided not to go beta this time and just wait patiently. Excited!

    Cue the "how's battery life" and "is it stable enough for daily use" posts.

    ------

    Odd that they're already releasing another beta, only a week after the last one. I like this.
