    Who's using the public beta of iOS10? What do you think?

    In my hands, things have been pretty buggy (yes, I know it's a beta. But still...).

    The biggest issue I see; "change for the sake of change" - lots of new "features", or re-worked ways to do something that has been a standard iPhone option for years. Not as an improvement, just to make iOS seem new(?) I guess? The whole press home to unlock is maddening, and a great example. WTF is the point of that?

    Anybody find any revolutionary new features?

    Some people have had that whole press home to unlock thing since jailbreaking their iPhones in iOS 5 - or earlier.

    Some people have since iOS 5 (or earlier) kept that very same action with iOS 6, 7, 8 and 9 after jailbreaking each version.

    Because some people came to the iPhone from phones were this was a thing - and so are very used to it.

    Some people, such as myself, are absolutely thrilled Apple has finally killed "Slide to Unlock".

    Pretty buggy? I'm certain anyone saying it's pretty buggy is running a major release beta for the first time.

    Shout out to all my iOS 7 beta friends.

    I like it, lock screen widgets is great but yes it's buggy as expected. I think it shows how serious they are taking force touch as thats is what alot of the features are showing off.

    So you can see and interact with your notifications or switch to the widgets. But thanks for clarifying that you don't understand it and just saying it's "a change for the sake of change".

    I love it so far. Very stable for a beta 3 (better than 9.3.3 in my eyes) and I am looking forward to further improvements. I like the lock screen/widgets, new music and maps app, rich notifications, control center, and raise to wake mainly. I am happy with all of the improvements and I feel like Apple is moving in the right direction UI wise.
