Apple seeded the third iOS 10 beta to developers on Monday, which means anyone with official or unofficial access to a developer account can try out Apple’s latest iOS 10 beta release. If you don’t have a developer account but are eager to see iOS 10 in action, there are a couple of ways for getting it, and the following video tells you everything there is to it.
iOS 10 might be stealing all the headlines, but if you’re a mere mortal you’re probably still running iOS 9.3.3. There’s no fancy new features or redesigned apps here, but there is something actually useful: bug fixes and performance improvements.
Updating any iOS device already running iOS 9 is painless: open the Settings app, go to General, Software Update, and you should see an option to download and install the latest version of iOS.

The iPhone 6s was unveiled with a whole lot of fanfare, but as it turns out, consumers didn’t flock to the device as readily as some analysts anticipated. Part of the problem is that the iPhone 6s didn’t include any new features that really resonated with consumers. Sure, the iPhone 6s introduced us to 3D Touch — an admittedly cool technology — but that didn’t excite consumers as much as Apple may have been expecting.
As revolutionary as the original iPhone was, it’s easy to forget that the device featured a 2 megapixel sensor that took less than stellar photos. Even for its time, the camera on Apple’s first iPhone was nothing to write home about. But as the years progressed, Apple began earmarking more and more engineering resources towards improving the camera quality on its iconic smartphone.
Today, the camera on each successive iPhone model is typically best-in-class at the time of its release. And underscoring Apple’s commitment towards improving mobile photography, Apple last year revealed that it has more than 800 engineers who work on iPhone camera-related technologies.
Remember when the internet went crazy over that dress? Well, this is basically that again, only this time, the simple question isn’t “what color is this dress.” It’s “where the hell is the iPhone on this carpet?”

Haven’t you heard? The “iPhone 7” is boring, if that’s what Apple decides to call its new 2016 flagship phone. But if the “iPhone 7” name isn’t used until next year, then the new 7 will be very exciting, and it’ll sport a radical redesign. Now, a Samsung marketing video perfectly explains why the iPhone is indeed due for a massive upgrade in 2017, at least when it comes to screen performance. More →
