iOS 10.2 public beta includes new emoji and tweaks to UI

iOS 10.1 is out and the Portrait Camera mode is, too. What does Apple have to work towards now? iOS 10.2. The developer betas for iOS 10.2, watchOS 3.1.1, tvOS 10.1 and macOS 10.12.2 are out, but we’ve got a public beta for the mobile software package today.

According to 9to5Mac, there are now 72 new emoji that have been implemented as part of the Unicode 9.0 update on emoji. Three new wallpapers for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are included. Other major UI tweaks include a new Preserve Camera setting, an accessibility option to press and hold the home button to speak, a new star ratings display under settings for Apple Music and a new icon for Bluetooth audio devices on the status bar. iMessages also has a new “Celebration” effect.

You can sign up for the beta if you aren’t already at our source link.
