If you’re enrolled in the Apple Beta Software Program, you can now download a second beta of iOS 10.2 to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Apple yesterday released iOS 10.2 beta 2 to members of the Apple Developer Program and now the software is available to public beta testers, too. In addition to this new public beta, Apple also seeded macOS Sierra 10.12.2 beta 2 to registered developers today.

If your device has an appropriate configuration profile, you can install or upgrade to the latest build of iOS 10.2 over-the-air via the Software Update feature in Settings.

Here’s a quick video overview of what’s new in iOS 10.2.

To get you up to speed, iOS 10.2 includes several new features like a set of new emoji characters, new wallpapers for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus owners, support for the upcoming Single Sign-On feature for remembering your cable logins across compatible video apps, Apple’s brand new TV guide-like application introduced last month and the same Emergency SOS feature that Apple Watch owners are familiar with.

    anyone know where I could get that nice looking wallpaper that’s already set on his phone?

      I would like to have that wallpaper too. Have just being seaching for it on the wallpaper downloading section.

  • Strange that Apple didn’t model the emergency SOS just like its configured on the Apple Watch with a button hold down then a slide press

    God, I hope the final release goes out soon- I seriously crave for a jailbreak!

      Jailbreak was supposed to come out for 10.0.2… then 10.1…. then… you know on and on.

    In iOS 10.2 we are getting a new app called tv. Now my question is what’s the point of the video app if the tv app has everything that the video app has and more?

    New colors, new wallpapers and new emoji… With new whole system version. This starting to be silly.. The new systems HAVE TO be updating for no reason?
