As is par for the course, the first beta is issued for developers, letting them get a look at any new features that are tied within, as well as other tweaks and behind-the-scenes improvements that Apple is bringing to the fore at a later date.
As of right now, the iOS 10.1 developer release notes say that the software fixes motion handling, and that developers will be able to access barometric pressure data for iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, and the iPad Pro.
The new software can be installed through the dedicated Apple developer site. A public beta will more than likely follow soon. If there is anything new discovered in the beta release, we’ll update this post accordingly.
What’s New in iOS 10.1 Beta 1
- Portrait Mode: Apple has brought the highly-anticipated Portrait Mode to the stock Camera app for iPhone 7 Plus owners. With Portrait Mode, users will be able to get a shallow depth-of-field shot, similar to what’s available on a DSLR. It will put the main image in focus, while the background will have a slight blur.
