Apple Seeds iOS 10.2 Beta 3 to Developers

Apple on Monday seeded the third beta of iOS 10.2 to developers, one week after seeding the second beta of iOS 10.2 and three weeks after releasing iOS 10.1, the first major update to iOS 10.


Here’s everything that’s new in iOS 10.2 beta 1, and here’s everything new to iOS 10.2 beta 2.

If anything new is discovered in iOS 10.2 beta 3, we’ll update this post accordingly.

What’s New in iOS 10.2 Beta 3:

  • TV: There is now a new settings option for TV, which will allow users to choose if they stream TV content while using their cellular connection. They can also choose the streaming quality on Wi-Fi or over their cellular connection as well. Users can pick whether their purchases are HD or SD.
  • SOS: The SOS function, which was first revealed in the iOS 10.2 beta 2 seed, which allows iPhone owners to make an SOS call by pressing the Power button multiple times, has been removed. It’s also worth noting that, according to the release notes, SOS is only available in India.
  • Videos: The Videos app, which has been a staple in iOS for quite some time, is now completely gone. It has been replaced with the brand new TV app. For those who used the Videos widget, that’s gone, too. The new TV app widget, which was introduced in iOS 10.2 beta 2, is still there, however.

Registered developers can download iOS 10.2 beta 3 from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.
