Apple today rolled out its fourth beta updates for iOS 10, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10 ahead of their public debut this fall. All three promise bug fixes and performance improvements, but more significant changes could be lurking within.

These are big updates filled with new features that we can’t wait to get our hands on this September, but the betas themselves haven’t changed much since Apple first made them available after WWDC back in June.

We have seen some tweaks here and there and new features in places — like visual tweaks to the new Music app in iOS 10 and an Emergency SOS feature in watchOS 3 — but on the whole most things remain unchanged.

What you can look forward to is a more stable experience. With every beta release, Apple is squashing bugs and making each platform more reliable. If you’re a registered developer, you can go download the latest update right now.

It will be available as an over-the-air download if you’re already running a previous beta release, or you can access each one via the Apple Developer Center if not. We expect new public betas to drop soon for those who don’t pay for a developer subscription.
