Apple launches iOS 10.1 Beta 2 for developers

Following its usual pattern, Apple has just launched the second iOS 10.1 Beta, an update that in addition to improving some known issues with iOS 10, brings the new and announced Bokeh function to the iPhone 7 Plus. This new Beta is currently available only for developers and will soon reach the users of the Public Beta. To download it you can access the settings of your device and download the new Beta via OTA, if you already have the previous Beta installed, or download the “ipsw” file from the developer portal and install it using iTunes.

The new update is available for iPhone and iPad, and its main noticeable improvement by the user is exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus, with that new Portrait Mode that makes the most prominent object in the picture appear crisp and everything around it appears out of focus getting the aforementioned "Bokeh effect" which until now was almost exclusive to advanced users of SLR cameras. Apple's commitment to the camera of its iPhone is clear, not surprisingly the iPhone is one of the most used cameras worldwide.

This update comes two weeks after Apple launched iOS 10.0.2, a version that arrived shortly after the first Beta of 10.1, and that solved some problems such as the one affecting the EarPods Lightning headphones whose control command was locked after a few minutes from the beginning of the reproduction of any multimedia file with our iPhone. It is expected that this new version 10.1 will reach all users soon and allow all new owners of the new iPhone 7 Plus to use this new photographic effect which makes use of the double camera of the new Apple smartphone. Any new changes that we notice in this new update will be communicated to you right here, although at the moment it seems that there is nothing remarkable.
