Monday lunchtime tradition dictates that we should always have a new beta version of iOS to play with, and who is Apple to mess with tradition? The latest beta version of iOS, 10.2 beta 6, has landed for developers or anyone on the public beta channel to play with (and break) to their heart’s content.
So far, the iOS 10.2 beta has brought us new emoji, shiny new wallpapers, and Apple’s new TV app. We’re still looking to see precisely what’s new in the iOS 10.2 beta 6, but aside from any new features, it’s probably worth downloading just for the bug fixes.
iOS 10.2 beta 6 is available immediately as an over the air (OTA) update for registered developers and anyone already on the public beta stream, and it can also be downloaded from Apple’s developer website and installed using iTunes.
We’ve rounded up the best features that you should expect on your phone when Apple finally releases the master version of iOS 10.2 to the general public. Among the best changes are new emoji — awkward canoe incoming — that TV app we talked about, a new screen effect in Messages, and a new Emergency SOS feature that promises to be equal parts lifesaving, and incredibly annoying.
