iOS 10 release date rumours: How to get iOS 10 now - Public Beta
iOS 10 became available to non-developers in the form of a Public Beta on 7 July, which means even non-developers can download the preview version of the software now ahead of its final release later in the year. But bear in mind that it still won't be officially finished, and there are likely to be bugs and compatibility issues with some apps. If that doesn't concern you, find out more about downloading iOS 10's public beta here.
Update, 9 September 2016: Apple notified all members of its iOS beta program that the final release candidate was being rolled out on 9 September.
"We are pleased to give you access to the iOS 10 and macOS Sierra final release candidates," says Apple, in an email. "We will be shipping the final versions to customers worldwide in the coming weeks and appreciate you trying out the releases and providing feedback. You can install the iOS 10 GM candidate from Software Update."
On 19 August 2016 Apple released two iOS 10 betas: beta 7, the newest version of iOS 10, is now available for dev testers, while Apple simultaneously made beta 6 available for those on the public testing programme.
With the public launch of iOS 10 so close (the final version is almost certain to launch in early September) the main features are essentially set in stone now; the beta releases we're getting are about polishing up the features already in place and fixing bugs that have been identified in the testing process. Apple Insider, indeed, thinks the unusually speedy release of beta 7 - only days after beta 6 was first released to dev testers - "could be an indication that Apple discovered - and quickly squashed - a show-stopping bug in iOS 10 beta 6".
