Apple has released the second beta of iOS 10.1 for developers. Since the first beta of IOS 10.1, we know at least from the existence of an important new feature: taking pictures with depth effect thanks to the new Portrait mode .
It lets you easily create portraits of people and animals, where the background has been blurred. In iOS 10 this feature was not available yet, but already in the betas. In addition, Apple also released new betas for watchOS, tvOS 3.1 and iOS 10.1. Yesterday released a new beta for Sierra .
How to Update iOS 10.1 Beta 2:
iOS 10.1 beta 2 can be installed in the usual way via the update function of your iPhone. We expect the beta soon will be available for public beta testers, but there are few innovations will sit.
Portrait mode in IOS 10.1
The Portrait mode was at the unveiling of the iPhone 7 already shown and iPhone 7 Plus, but was not ready in time for the launch of the new devices. Apple is the first beta of iOS 10.1 begun testing this feature, so developers and testers public also can get to work.
The Portrait mode found in the camera app, but only on the iPhone 7 Plus. While making such a picture is automatically displayed on the distance you have to take the photo.
New discoveries in IOS 10.1 Beta
- It is always possible to use iMessage effects, even when “Reduce motion is enabled.
- iMessage apps are now no more dots shown as the number of apps does not fit, but a scroll bar.
