Apple on Wednesday seeded the seventh beta of their upcoming iOS 10.2 operating system update to developers and public beta testers, just two days following the release of the sixth beta version of the new OS. The interval between beta releases has grown ever shorter, as Apple shakes the last few bugs out of its iOS update, likely to be released later this month.
Today’s seventh iOS 10.2 beta seed – build 14C92 – is available as an over-the-air update to developers and public beta testers who have the beta configuration profile installed on their iOS devices. Or, it can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center.
What’s New in iOS 10.2:
iOS 10.2 offers over a hundred new emoji, including a a clown face, selfie, face palm, fox face, owl, shark, butterfly, avocado, pancakes, croissant, and more. New emoji include more diverse emoji, including professions emoji for both male and female genders. Apple has also redesigned a number of existing emoji, lending a more realistic look.
New wallpaper has also made the scene, along with new “Send with Celebration,” and “Send with Love” screen effects in Messages.
The TV app is now available to beta users. The app is designed to simplify the television watching experience, offering Single Sign-On support, a TV Widget, TV app settings, and more.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for any new features in beta seven of iOS 10.2, and will report them in this space.
