Back in the day it used to be that only registered developers would be able to access the betas for Apple’s software. However in the recent years, Apple decided to open the door up to the public where anyone who registered for the Apple Beta Software Program could take part in it, which is great news for those who are curious.
That being said if you are wondering about the latest iOS 10.3 beta or macOS 10.12.4, you’ll be pleased to learn that after a brief period in which registered developers got first dibs, Apple has since made the betas open to all. Users who are interested can head on over to the Apple Beta Software Program’s website and register.
Both iOS 10.3 and macOS 10.12.4 will be offering up some pretty interesting features to either platform. With macOS 10.12.4, it was recently discovered that Apple will be bringing Night Shift mode onto macOS where previously it only existed on iOS devices. The iOS 10.3 update is also expected to introduce a “Find my AirPods” feature to help locate missing AirPods earbuds.
It also changes the file system on iOS devices from a HFS+ system to an APFS system which is said to offer better encryption and data integrity. We also heard that there is floating one-handed keyboard option that could be introduced to the iPad as well. Note that due to the nature of beta software that what you see now will probably be pretty rough around the edges, and that it might be different from the final release, so take that into consideration if you want to check it out.
