iOS 10.2 beta 2 is now available to the public

On the first day of this month Apple released the first beta build of iOS 10.2 for those who are taking part in its public beta testing program. And now, one week later, the company is pushing out the first update for the beta iOS 10.2 release.

iOS 10.2 beta 2 is now available for public testers, one day after the same build was downloadable by registered developers. If you're a member of Apple's beta program, you can grab the new software by going to Settings > General > Software Update.

Included in this new beta is Apple's TV app, which is meant to help Apple TV owners find things to watch, as well as easily view their purchased movies and TV shows. This app was presented at the company's October event, when it unveiled the new MacBook Pro line. Also new is an Emergency SOS feature, which will contact emergency services when you press the power button five times. Finally, the Music app gets bigger Shuffle and Repeat buttons.

The initial iOS 10.2 beta also brought with it some new emoji, new wallpapers, and a new widget for the Videos app. Camera settings can be saved so that they don't always get reset to Auto when you restart the app, and you have a new option to rate music with stars (one to five).
