Apple has just released the first developer beta of iOS 10.2 and it is now available for download. The release comes right after iOS 10.1.1 was made available for public that brought essential Health related bug fixes to the devices worldwide. If you are a registered developer, then you can head to the dev center in order to install iOS 10.2 on your test devices. If you are a general user interested in beta testing the new software update, then you will have to wait until Apple makes iOS 10.2 beta available on its public beta program.
In addition to the dev center the update is also available over-the-air through the Settings app. The iOS 10.2 beta brings a number of new changes to the operating system. This includes three new wallpapers from the iPhone 7 marketing photos. Apple has also added new preserve camera setting, new Unicode 9.0 emojis, new widget for the Videos app, a brand new ‘Celebrations’ effect for the Messages app, new Press and Hold to Speak accessibility setting for the Home Button, ‘Show Star Ratings’ option for the Music app settings and a new icon for Bluetooth audio devices in the status bar.
The preserve mode in Camera app will allow users to choose if they want the app to remember the mode they were using when they last used the app, as opposed to switching to ‘Photo’ mode automatically.
watchOS 3.1.1 beta and tvOS 10.1 beta have also been released for developers.
