Apple releases iOS 10.1 public beta with Portrait mode for iPhone 7 Plus

“Coming just a day after Apple released the iOS 10.1 developer beta 1 with the new depth of field effect, the iOS 10.1 public beta is also now available,” Greg Barbosa reports for 9to5Mac. “Users installing the public beta on the iPhone 7 Plus will see the new beta Portrait mode under their camera settings.”
