Apple fans who want to get a glimpse of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra before their public release later this fall will finally get the opportunity to install the new software today.

Coming just two days after it released the second beta of iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, Apple is now letting members of its Public Beta Tester program install the new software that debuted last month at WWDC.

If you haven’t already signed up to get in on the betas, you can still do so over at Apple’s site. Once you’re in the program you’ll get an email with a link to download the latest builds.

Beta testers should only install iOS 10 on a secondary iPhone or iPad because there are still a lot of bugs. Many of your apps won’t work perfectly and downgrading is a pain. Mac users installing macOS Sierra are encouraged to install it on a separate hard drive partition if you don’t have a second Mac.

iOS 10’s public release is expected to launch around September, soon after Apple announces the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The new mobile operating system update brings a ton of new features, including a redesigned lock screen, big improvements to Messages, Apple Music, Notifications, Control Center, and much more.
