Apple is out with an updated iOS 12 developer beta and a new public beta today, the new build coming just three days after the release of the ninth beta for developers and eight for the public. It an odd hour indeed, but Apple tossed its normal iOS beta schedule out the window long ago.

The iPhone maker has started to pick up the pace since last Monday, in fact, when Apple launched and then almost immediately yanked back a seventh iOS 12 developer beta. Then we got a more stable version with the release of the eighth beta, and now Apple is back to a fast clip of updates, with iOS 12 developer beta 10 and its corresponding public beta now in the wild.

As a reminder, Apple warns people on the developer beta channel not to install the software on a device that’s your daily driver, advice that many of you always ignore. You’re a little safer if you stick to the public release version of the iOS beta, which is usually the same as the developer version but out slightly later so any bugs can be addressed. As stable as iOS 12 has been so far though, you’re definitely safe.

Apple is packing iOS 12, you’ll recall, with tons of new features to hopefully make devices even faster and respond better. The changes and new features include everything from new Animoji characters on the iPhone X, new camera effects for Messages and Facetime, new shortcuts for Siti, time management tools and more.

Whether you’re on the developer beta or the public beta, the new versions are available immediately as over the air (OTA) updates. Just go to Settings > General > Software Update, and follow the on-screen instructions.
