Apple today started rolling out the second public beta release of iOS 10.2, the next update to iOS 10 that builds on iOS 10.1, which came out last month.
Today’s release first became available to developers yesterday. It’s significant because, according to 9to5Mac, it includes the TV app that Apple debuted at its MacBook Pro event last month. It’s a new way for Apple TV users to see what’s on and instantly start watching.
And it considerably adds to iOS 10, which first became available to everyone in September.
Other new features that come with iOS 10.2 public beta 2 include more emojis, new wallpapers for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the ability to enable star ratings again through Apple Music’s settings, and the ability to hit the power button five times to trigger the SOS feature, according to 9to5Mac. There are also larger buttons for shuffle and repeat in Apple Music, according to MacRumors.
At last month’s event, Apple said the TV app would launch in December. So if you can’t wait till then, you can install this beta, if you’re already a member of Apple’s Beta Software Program, or you can sign up now, free of charge, here.
