At the yearly WWDC keynote, Apple showed off its new version of iOS — iOS 10. This software won’t be available for the public until the Fall, which is also when Apple‘s new iPhone will be released. Though, they did mention there will be a beta of iOS 10 in July for the public to try out on their devices before the official launch later this year. The public beta for iOS 10 is now available and the video above will show you how to get it on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch before your friend so!
