Apple continues to seed its beta versions of the upcoming iOS 10.3, this time for the public beta testers.
Now, Apple has seeded the second public beta for the same software. With the public beta, those who have signed up to be part of Apple’s public beta test can download and install the pre-release software, testing it out for Apple to help catch any bugs or other issues that might crop up ahead of the public launch later this year.
If you haven’t signed up to be part of the public beta program, and would like to, go here.
For devices already registered as part of the public beta program, you can install the iOS 10.3 public beta 1 as an over the air (OTA) update.
