It’s lunchtime on Monday, which means it’s about time for a new iOS beta. This week, Apple has released iOS 10.2 beta 3 to registered developers, following last week’s release of the second version.

Last week brought us an exciting bundle of things like new emoji, wallpapers, and our first look at Apple’s new TV app. To see what’s new in this version, you can head to Settings–>Software Update and find the download, provided that you’re a registered developer (or able to Google).

DON’T MISS: The 5 best new features coming to your iPhone in iOS 10.2

iOS 10.2 beta 3 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 now, 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 3 should follow closely behind.

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.
