The next generation of Apple’s operating system is out and is looking to be an interesting one. Finally revealed on June 13th at WWDC 2016, iOS 10 contains quite a few features and a new app, as well as the usual bug fixes and enhancements to performance and it will be interesting to see what the next couple of months bring as the beta firmware undergoes strict testing. The public beta program is opening in July but, until then, if you are not a registered developer, the only way to test out the betas for yourself is to sign up to our special offer on UDD registration – hurry though because we only have a limited number of spaces.

Now, we all know that beta firmware isn’t always al it is cracked up to be and is very unstable. Most developers tend to use a spare device, rather than their everyday one, to download the firmware onto, simply because if things go wrong, it doesn’t matter too much. However, some users have run into trouble because they have opted to avoid the easy method of updating by OTA and gone for the iTunes method instead. The error they have run into is iTunes Error 14 and it has left them somewhat in a mess, stuck in a boot loop. Luckily, it is fairly easy to fix.

Now, how many of us take the time to read the release notes when we download a new firmware ? Probably not enough of us and, in this case, the answer would have been staring us in the face. The iOS 10 release notes say, in black and white and there for all to see, if you are going to use the IPSW method to update, you have to be running on Xcode 8, the latest beta version of the software.
To get this, you have to go to the Apple Developers site [ext link], sign in and download the software. Do be aware that it is a 6 GB download and it isn’t going to be quick so a little patience is required before you can download iOS 10 beta 1 successfully. And, if you really don’t like the beta, find it too unstable, downgrading to iOS 9.3.2 is still possible for the moment.
Really and truthfully, because there is no iOS 10 jailbreak available , the easiest way to update is OTA; it is a quicker way and a smaller update, better for those who don’t have vat amount of free space on their devices.
