Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are different from their processors in many ways. Apart from design, lightning port, and other features, Apple has also made a lot of changes in the OS itself. Apple has finally launched the 3rd beta version of the iOS 10. Dubbed as iOS 10.1 Beta, the new version of the operating system is now available for Beta testers and developers.
Last month, in the first Beta version, the company introduced a toggle setting that was called Auto-Play message effect and was available in Accessibility. It reduced motion by disabling the message bubble and screen effects.
According to the new release notes, the 10.1 Beta includes a fix for that setting as well. Developers are now able to access barometric pressure data for iPad Air 2, mini 4 and Pro.
Apart from that, Apple also introduced the Portrait mode. One of the main camera features that were meant to be in the camera section was the Portrait mode. Apple flaunted the feature in the launch event but it was missing from the initial iOS 10.
What does Portrait mode do?
Thanks to the Dual camera setup, the new portrait mode allows you to click sharper images of people as well as objects. It provides the well-known bokeh effect to the images that gives the blur effect to the background. The blur effect is really hard to get in any of the available handsets in the market. Users often prefer to install some tweak apps to get the effect and end up destroying the original aesthetics of the image. The depth-of-field trick of this special mode adds life to the photographs.
The public Beta version of the iOS 10.1 is also available if anyone wants to test it. The only issue is that it is still under testing phase and may cause a number of issues in the phone.
It is always advised that if you are not a developer you should keep yourself restricted from downloading any Beta version of the OS. Wait for a few days so that the company launches the stable version and then enjoy the new features.
