VentureBeat has found out that there are many users who installed unreleased versions of these two operating systems, after startup company Realm has spotted them in the wild. This mobile database runs inside 1 billion phones, tablets and wearables and the company has noticed in its anonymized usage logs that the database is used on OS builds that haven’t been unveiled yet.



iPhones and iPads will be upgraded to iOS 10, once it will be released. According to Realm, the devices are running build 14A262, which follows the iOS 9 builds that start with 13A, 13B, 13C etc. This clearly suggests that this isn’t another iOS 9 update and that Apple is preparing to introduce iOS 10.

Mac devices spotted by Realm were running OS X 10.12, with build number 16A185, which is surely a follow-up to OS X 10.11 aka El Capitan and whose build numbers began with 15A, 15B, 15C and so on.

Darwin is a Unix open-source operating system that Apple has released in 2000 which is updated everytime iOS and OS X are getting new versions, and Realm has picked up version 16.0.0 of Darwin.

Apple will reveal more information about iOS 10 and OS X 10.12 during the WWDC 2016 event, which will end on June 17. Users who weren’t able to go to San Francisco, California because they didn’t have $1,599 to pay for a ticket will watch the live streams and videos through the WWDC Live app on the Apple TV, or using Mac computers running on OS X 10.8.5 or later, via Safari. Also, Windows 10 users will watch the event via Microsoft’s Edge browser and iPhone or iPad owners who installed at least iOS 7 will access Apple’s live stream URL with the VLC video player.
