Apple releases iOS 10.2 Beta 5 for developers and public beta

Completely unexpected, Apple released the fifth beta of iOS 10.2 for developers. Unexpected because it's Friday, a strange day for Apple to launch new software, and unexpected because it's the second beta it's launched this week, after launching the fourth beta earlier in the week. It is available in the Dev Center and via OTA for those who already had it installed, both developers and public beta users. We remind you of the news of this new iOS 10.2 which will soon be available to everyone:

  • New Emoji for iOS, watchOS and macOS, including some long-awaited ones like paella
  • New effects in the Messages app for special celebrations and love messages
  • New TV application, which at the moment is limited only to the version for the United States, and of which we do not know if it will be launched outside the North American country
  • Small aesthetic changes in the interface of the Music application, which also integrates the possibility of rating songs with stars
  • New emergency system which, after a first beta in which it was in all regions, is now limited to India.
  • New icon for the status bar when we connect a headset or handsfree
  • The Feedback app reappears to send feedback on bugs we found in beta directly to Apple
  • New Widget for the TV and/or Videos application
  • New option to keep Camera app settings

iOS 10.2 could arrive as early as next week after reaching five Betas since its release. With the battery issues generated by iOS 10.1.1, many users are eagerly waiting to be able to update to this new version, which after several Betas seems to return to normal behavior with the iPhone battery. At the beginning of the week, the fourth beta was accompanied by a new beta for watchOS 3.1.1 and for macOS 10.12.2, but at the moment there is no news about this today.

Apple, Xiaomi and the roof of Notre Dame… What do they have in common?
