Here are all iOS 10.2 beta 2 features and additions

Apple has officially released the second beta of iOS 10.2 for all supported iPhones and iPads. The beta update focuses on big fixes and behind-the-scene improvements. It also brings in some new features and additions including tweaks to Apple Music, a new SOS feature and a TV app.


iOS 10.2 beta 2 features and additions may not be revolutionary like what we have already seen with Portrait Mode for the iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 10.1, but they are really something you don’t want to miss at all. Previously, the first beta of iOS 10.2 was released to third-party developers, introducing support for new emoji, videos widget, emergency contact and more.

Don’t miss: Here is everything that is new in iOS 10.2

In this post, we will walk you through all iOS 10.2 beta 2 features and additions

  1. TV app

The new TV app is one of the noticeable additions to the iOS 10.2. In reality, Apple first demoed the app at its October “Hello again” event. The new TV app serves as a TV guide for iPhone and iPad users, thereby allowing them to find content faster. Apart from that, the new TV app takes you to the App Store where it suggests new releases that are worth your time. There is also support for Single Sign-On and Siri’s Tune-In feature.

  1. SOS

With iOS 10.2 beta 2, you now can activate the SOS feature by simply pressing the power button five times on your iPhone. Doing so will automatically call the emergency service in your region. Note that SOS mode is now available in selected countries such as United States, UK, France, Canada and more.

  1. Music app

In iOS 10, Apple’s stock Music app is now much cleaner and more visually appealing. This time, with iOS 10.2 beta 2, Apple has re-positioned the buttons, making them much more visible while on the Now Playing screen. Besides, the Music app now includes a new splash screen that shows up when you first open the now playing screen.

iOS 10.2 is now available as a developer beta and the public beta is likely to launch soon. Are you expecting the public version of iOS 10.2? Share with us in the comments below
