Are you planning to install the new public iOS 10 beta?

Are you planning to install the new public iOS 10 beta?
With iOS 10, Apple introduced those in-your-face interface changes its predecessor couldn't, as iOS 9 was mainly focused on under-the-hood optimizations, like speed and security. We have a brand new Lock screen with rich notifications, widgets and quick camera access, a more interactive Peek preview that utilizes 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, as well as a brand new Apple Music.

Not only that, but Apple decoupled the stock apps from the operating system for faster updates, and significantly enhanced iMessage, making it possibly the most full-featured secure chat app out there. That's not all, however, as when we installed the iOS 10 Developer Beta we noticed a veritable smorgasbord of even smaller, but svelte features that Apple didn't have time to mention in the keynote, or list them on its website - like the Clear All option in the notification center, or the Close all Tabs feature in Safari.

Now that the public beta got released for a general preview, so everyone with iPhone 5 and above can install it on their handset, we would like to ask you if you indeed tend to do so. Choose from the poll below, and tell us which new feature would be the main reason for considering the installation of the newly-minted public beta of iOS.

There's no necessary to get the ios 10 beta. Why software update, when I able to afford to queue in Cupertino and get the latest model 256gb version (if any) this September? :)

I'm not a religious person, but I am actually praying that they sell out before you are able to get one.

I already did on the day it was release to us developers.. apart from the stutter and lag.. it seems to be as stable as the latter beta's of ios 9.

I noticed that my Apple smartphone and tablet lags occasionally. Some animations don't respond well like opening an app for the first time after a reboot. I love its smooth animations/transitions but it is so slow like opening and closing app folders in a second; and panning (scrolling) through screens. Screen turns black after auto rotate. Both my devices have 9.3.2. I hope iOS 10 will fix this.

Heck no! It's easier pulling teeth, than it is to get out of the beta program. I'll wait for the gold master in September. IOS 10 does look really good though.

I don't even know what's new in iOS 10. God, I really feel like I'm getting behind on the latest tech news.

Probably on the 3rd beta or 4th.. I've heard it's still pretty buggy even on he 2nd beta..
