Apple has released the iOS 10 beta 8 update for developers for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. At the same time the company has also released the latest beta update of tvOS for Apple Tv users.

For those already testing the iOS 10 beta versions on their devices can just head to the Software Update section of the Settings app to download the OTA update. In case you have not started testing the OS but are a registered Apple developer head over to the Apple's developer page to install the beta profile. For those wanting to test the public beta can register for Apple's public beta testing program but will have access to iOS beta 7 for now as developers get a notch higher beta update.

iOS 10 includes a host of new features and changes including redesigned Music and News apps, the first Home app for HomeKit, a redesigned Lock screen and Home screen experience for widgets, For the first time ever users can also delete their native apps if they fall short of storage apps and install it back when needed.

Although it looked like the beta 7 would be the last testing version for the iOS 10, the beta 8 was released by Apple to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the final OTA build of iOS is bug free to best possible extent.

The company has not yet announced a date for release of the upcoming OS but tipsters are predicting a September 7 event to debut the iPhone 7 which will come pre-installed with the iOS 10. Post the event the public OTA build for iOS 10 should start rolling out to other devices like the iPhone 6 and 5 series along with iPad and iPod touch devices eligble for the update.
