iOS 10.2 Beta 5 Now Available for Developers and Public Testers

iOS 10.2 beta 5 released for developers and public beta testers

Apple has just made iOS 10.2 beta 5 available for both developers and public testers, so if you’re on the Beta Program, you should be able to see the update for your device.

We already know the key features on iOS 10.2, and developers are now frantically searching for new functionality on the fifth beta version of the new mobile OS from Apple. There’s already Unicode 9 support for new emoji characters, the TV app that’s possibly going to replace the Videos app in the future and a few nice-looking wallpapers.

There’s also a new sorting option for the Music app, and they’ve brought back the star ratings that some of us remember from before. You’ll also have the ability to preserve the camera settings for your next session and there’s a new widget for the Videos app. Apple has also brought in some new screen effects as well as an SOS function that’s currently only available in select countries.

Other key features have been covered in an earlier post on November 15 after the third beta of iOS 10.2 was released to developers and public testers. The final release should be coming out sometime this month, and Apple seems to be very close to the date. We’ll keep you posted on anything new that developers and testers find on the fifth beta, and definitely as soon as the full release is out for all other users.
