Apple Releases iOS 10.2 Beta 2 for Public Beta Testers

Apple has just seeded the second beta of iOS 10.2 to public beta testers for testing purposes, just one over one week after releasing the first iOS 10.2 public beta, and one day after providing the second iOS 10.2 beta to developers.


Here’s everything that’s new in iOS 10.2, and a brief list below of what’s been discovered in the second beta.

What’s New (so far) in Beta 2:

  • SOS: There’s a new SOS feature that is activated when the Power button on the iPhone is pressed quickly five times. According to Apple, the system works in the United States, the United Kingdom, India, France, Hong Kong, Japan, Italy, India, Belgium, Australia, Brazil, France, Canada, China, Russia, and Spain.
  • TV app: The new TV app, for the single universal TV guide, is now available in iOS 10.2.
  • Apple Music: While listening to music, the Shuffle and Repeat buttons are a bit bigger, making it easier to see and activate.

Those who want to be a part of Apple’s beta testing program can sign up to participate through the beta testing website, which gives users access to both iOS and macOS Sierra betas. Betas are not stable and include many bugs, so they should be installed on a secondary device.
