Just hours after releasing the iOS 10.1.1 update to the public, Apple yesterday rolled out the first beta version of iOS 10.2 only for registered developers. But now anyone can grab the new update of Apple’s OS and enjoy some new exciting features on their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Thanks to the launch of the iOS 10.2 public beta 1, which was publicized today.
Apple revealed its highly anticipated iOS 10 on 13th September around the world for Apple devices. Though iOS 10 is a solid update, but it is not flawless. To make it bugs-free and perfect, the company is continuously hitting the market with new updates. Following the update of iOS 10.1.1 and 10.2 beta 1 for developers, Apple today has come out with iOS 10.2 public beta. Unlike the developers-only release, the modest iOS is now available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod. Download it free and enjoy numerous new features on your Apple device!
Features of iOS 10.2 Public Beta
Not only, Apple’s new iOS 10.2 public beta software includes a number of bug fixes, but there are also a lot of interesting new features and refinements in the current software, which users are going to love. Regardless of all that, the most attention-grabbing thing about the new Apple software is new emoji characters with Unicode 9.0 support. It packs 72 new emoji’s in total, including 22 new emoji from the category of ‘Smileys and People’ and 18 new emoji from the ‘Food and Drink’ section. And now you can get all these realistic emoji’s on your iPhone or iPad and share them with your buddies.
What’s more in iOS 10.2; a trio of new wallpapers, widget for the videos app, a Preserve Camera setting, headphone icon on the status bar, ‘Celebrate’ full screen effect in the Messages app, Press and Hold to Speak under accessibility setting, ‘Show Star Ratings’ option under Music Settings, and much more!

Since no one knows how much stable the Apple’s new OS is in its recent form, I do recommend installation with caution. Jump to a Wi-Fi network first and Plug in your device before start proceeding. It’ll save you data overcharges on your bill and also protect your phone or tablet to die during the installation process. The latest iOS update will not delete anything from your device but you should take a backup using iCloud or iTunes just to be on the safe side.
