Apple on Friday seeded the sixth beta of the upcoming iOS 10.2 operating system update to developers and public beta testers, just a few days following the release of the fifth beta version of the new OS.
Today’s sixth iOS 10.2 beta seed – build 14C90 | 14C91 – 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 six of iOS 10.2, and will report them in this space.
iClarified reports these changes in beta six:
- The TV app should no longer crash or show “TV is unavailable” on iPod touch.
- Syncing with iTunes 12.5 through 12.5.3 should no longer delete TV app library content.
