In order to install and download iOS 10 version, you need to have an Apple Developer account, which costs a few $$.
There is a way to Download and Install iOS 10 version for free, without using a developer account or using a “hack”.
Before starting the procedure, make sure to have one of the following devices, else the installation will fail!
- iPhone 5, 5s & 5C
- iPhone 6 & 6+
- iPhone 6s & 6s+
- iPhone SE
- iPod 6th generation
- iPad 4
- iPad mini 3 & 4

Download and Install iOS 10 version for FREE
The procedure is extremely easy and you do not even have to use iTunes or even a computer. The whole process will be completed through your iDevice!
Make sure to have a steady WiFi connection and a full battery:
- Go to the iOS Beta Software Profile (1)
- Before installing it, make sure to delete ANY profile that you have to your iDevice (Settings->General->Profile-> Delete all – There is a good chance that the Profile option is not there. If this is the case, then you are good to go!).
- Tap Install
- Type your Passcode
- Then Tap Install again (And again to the next button)
- It will ask you to restart your iDevice. You should restart it!
- Once the reboot finishes, go to Settings->General->Software Update
- You should be able to see the iOS 10 beta version (If you cannot see that, go back and then tap the Software Update again)
- Tap on Download and Install
- It will take a lot of time, so have this in mind
Unlocking iOS 10 new features:
Since it is iOS 10, I would list you 10 new features you will find on the iOS 10 version.
1 – New Design and User Experience – Raise to Wake & Lock Screen
The Raise to Wake feature will prevent from hitting the Home button and get to the Home Screen when you use the Touch ID. It will automatically light up and go to the Home Screen by just lifting your iPhone up!
Also, now with the new Lock Screen, you will be able to make much more actions without having to unlock your iPhone. From checking your UBER driver to respond to notifications (You should check it!!).
2 – Siri
Siri is now open to third party developers. This means that you will be able to use other applications with your voice! Some examples are, Siri will be able to interact (Which means that you will be able to send a message) with Slack, Whatsapp, Uber, Lyft, Shutterfly, Pinterest, Map my Run and much much more!
3 – QuickType
A very good app for writing text very quickly (As its name suggests). Its advantage is that it can predict what you are about to say, and in iOS 10 the predictions are very good. For instance, If someone asks where you are, it will offer your location as a suggested response or if someone asks for a person’s email address and iOS thinks it knows who that is, it will suggest the relevant contact details. We also expect multilingual support!
4 – Photos
Photos also got enhanced and started thinking by themselves. It will analyse faces, places and objects so it can create much better albums for you! Also, Memories will be available, which is basically a slider with photos that have some relation (Place, Time, people, objects ..).
5 – Maps
The Maps in iOS 10 will take traffic into consideration, which is very nice (Google was first, but we do not mind!). It will be clearer and easier to use and also it will automatically zoom in or out, depending on the distance, speed or other factors!
6 – Music
Apple Music 2.0 is the version of the iOS 10! It has a new look, does not interupt the music while doing other tasks (Like taking pictures!) and it supports onscreen lyrics (Not all songs have it though!).
7 – News
News is exactly what you think. Live messages about the news, based on your location or the importance! Also, it will support “Breaking News” too!
8 – HomeKit & Home App
In short, if you have a smart house which is compatible with HomeKit, then you will be able to control everything through your iDevice. It does not matter what home appliances you use, they just need to be compatible with HomeKit. You will be able to create pre-customized set of adjustements (To as many appliances you want) and just activate it with a tap of through Siri!
9 – Phone
Just two words, Voicemail transcription. Lets hope that it will be accurate (not 100%) and this will be a great addition!
10 – Messages
The messages are enhanced by a lot. There are plenty of additions which I do not know from where to start. From using invisible ink to send your heartbeat! Just download and install iOS 10 version and start playing with Messages!
