Apple released the first iOS 10.2 beta for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Test release is available for download at the developer website in the Dev Center, as well as on devices by setting the OTA-upgrade.
iOS 10.2 beta 1 came a week after the release of the final version of iOS 10.1 – with of iOS 10.1.1 . Last corrects errors in the “Health” applications and a number of other minor bugs.
iOS 10.2 beta 1 update size is 1.99 GB. According to the description of the update, the device on which this firmware is installed, you can not roll back to a previous version. With iOS 10.2 beta 1, Apple released a beta version watchOS 3.1.1, tvOS 10.1 and macOS 10.12.2 beta.
Apple does not list changes to iOS 10.2, but from experience we know that the technical update indexes iOS x.0.1 x.0.2 and correct the operating system error, and releases iOS x.1 and x.2 aimed at expanding the capabilities of mobile devices. For example, iOS 9.1 update has brought 3D Touch support for third-party applications and 150 new emoticons, and iOS 10.1 offered iPhone users 7 Plus new Portrait shooting mode.
So far the company has not released an assembly for public testing, but we expect that in the near future, so the beta profile you definitely can not hurt.
