In between playing Pokémon GO and trying to figure out how to #savetwitter this week, you might have noticed there's a new update available for your iPhone.
Apple recently released iOS 9.3.4, which will likely be the company's final update before it comes out with iOS 10 (and possibly a new iPhone, but we'll get to that later). The official description of the update says it "provides an important security update for your iPhone or iPad and is recommended for all users." But Forbes and other media outlets have alleged that what it really does is prevent people from using a newly developed jailbreak method from Pangu.
"There is nothing more to it, no performance improvements, no refinements or new features, nothing," Neurogadget wrote Thursday. It recommended users "think twice before upgrading," especially if they're interested in jailbreaking their devices.
If you decide you want to update your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with iOS 9.3.4, you can go to Settings > General > Software Update and click "download and install."
However, most of the Apple fervor this week was around iOS 10, which is rumored to be coming out in September alongside the iPhone 7. iOS 10's beta 4 was released to the public to test on Tuesday, BGR reported.
iOS 10 will let users write in Messages, send each other animations, exchange hidden photos, use Siri for apps, book reservations in Maps, access a redesigned News app and more, according to the Apple website. Perhaps most importantly, iOS 10 will come with dozens of new emoji. Apple will now let users choose from female athletes and more diverse characters. The gun will become a water pistol, and there will be a pride flag, TechCrunch reported.
The new operating system will work on iPhone models 5 through 6s, iPad mini 2 through iPad Pro and the 6th generation iPod Touch.
