Can you remember the last time a week went by without Apple releasing an iOS beta or a new public release? In keeping with the trend, Apple on Monday released iOS 10.2 beta 2 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The new beta includes a number of refinements and enhancements, but let’s be honest — the only thing people really care about are all the new emoji that will come along with Unicode 9.0 support. Shrug emoji? Check. Face palm emoji? Check. Clown emoji? Check. And there are plenty more where that came from… 72 in all, in fact.

There are also a few new wallpapers in there, and a number of other additions like the arrival of Apple’s new “TV” app, which was unveiled last month during the company’s MacBook Pro event.

DON’T MISS: Hey Apple, why are you trolling us?

iOS 10.2 beta 2 is available immediately as an over the air (OTA) update, and it can also be downloaded from Apple’s developer website and installed using iTunes. For the time being, it’s only available to people who are registered for Apple’s paid developer program (or users who follow the simple instructions to get around Apple’s restrictions and gain access to developer betas), but iOS 10 public beta 2 should follow closely behind.
