Apple on Thursday seeded iOS 10.2.1 beta 4 to developers. Registered developers and public testers can install the update either via iOS 10’s OTA mechanism, or as a standalone download via Apple’s website.

The release comes a few hours after Apple issued the fourth beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.3, and just a few days after beta 3 was seeded for both platforms, suggesting that they are nearing closer to public launch.

We have yet to see any user-facing changes in the iOS 10.2.1 betas, and given the release notes and version number, we probably won’t. This is likely a minor update with mostly under-the-hood improvements.

If you are looking for new features, Apple released iOS 10.2 a month ago with new emoji, widgets, wallpapers and more, and rumor has it iOS 10.3 is in the works with an all-new Theater Mode CC toggle.

      32.8 MB here…. were you on the latest beta before this?

    Wait what happened to the iOS 10.3 beta?
    Guess it was all a myth

    • Blip dude

      I actually think it’s coming, just not now. I feel like Apple may spare 10.3 until they are sure themselves the next gen iPads are ready for the public. So I’d say a few weeks before we see a Beta 1 for 10.3. Still waiting on Dark mode here!!

      I could be wrong of course.

        No that makes sense actually

  • 30,7 mb update on iPad Air 2 (developer beta)

  • The 10 version is one of the worst iOS releases on the iOS history in terms of new features and overall design.
    It’s always a good new when the new version it’s more optimized but the iOS 10 brings some annoying changes like the new control center (one of the worst design implementations ever) and the new unlock feature which isn’t a good option for older devices without Touch ID.
    And we don’t see any new great features in the minor iOS 10 releases… so iOS 10 will be in history at the level of the iOS 8
