Apple today seeded the sixth beta of an upcoming iOS 10.2 update to developers and public beta testers, a few days after seeding the fifth beta of iOS 10.2 and more than a month after releasing iOS 10.1, the first major update to iOS 10.

Registered developers can download the sixth beta of iOS 10.2 from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.

iOS 10.2 introduces new emoji, such as clown face, drooling face, selfie, face palm, fox face, owl, shark, butterfly, avocado, pancakes, croissant, and more.

There are more than a hundred new emoji, including several profession emoji available in both male and female genders, such as firefighter, mechanic, lawyer, doctor, scientist, and more. Apple has also redesigned many existing emoji, adding more detail to make them look much more realistic.

Along with new emoji, iOS 10.2 includes new wallpaper, new Music sorting options and buttons for Repeat and Shuffle, new "Celebrate" and "Send with Love" Screen Effects, an option for preserving camera settings, Single-Sign On support for watching live TV via apps, and the official "TV" app that was first introduced at Apple's October 27 event.

The TV app serves as an Apple-designed TV guide that aims to simplify the television watching experience and allow users to discover new TV shows and movies to watch.

The TV app is available on both iOS devices and the Apple TV (tvOS 10.1), and in iOS 10.2, the "Videos" app has been replaced entirely with the new "TV" app, which will now serve as the iOS TV and movie hub.

Apple has called iOS 10 its "biggest release ever" for iOS users, with a revamped lock screen, a Siri SDK for developers, an overhauled Messages app, a dedicated "Home" app for HomeKit users, new facial and object recognition capabilities in Photos, and redesigned Maps and Apple Music apps.

Can anyone please test if the SOS Feature is working again? Just set it up and quickly press the sleep/wake-button 5 times, thanks for answering!

That doesn't exist in this build for me and hasn't for a few. Verizon iPhone 6S Plus.

Update successful on my 6S Plus. Build 14C90.

I do not know what bugs are fixed or emoji's added in this latest build.

I've been using the 10.2 public betas as my daily driver ever since PB3, with no problems whatsoever. Hoping that will continue with PB6.

Usually they release the final version on tuesday so you think a beta today and a final tomorrow?
It's a definite possibility. I would say that Thursday or Friday would be likely, however, companies don't like deploying things near the weekend for obvious reasons (like if they majorly f**k something up). This is why Tuesday is the ideal date, usually. Tomorrow could be a final release though. It wouldn't surprise me.

Does any one have a logical explanation from the stuttering and frame dropping in iOS 10 animations? um running the latest beta on iPhone 7+ and still feel the frame dropping. it all started since iOS7 on the iphone 5, I believe apple is doing something wrong with animation processing. I hope anyone explain to me the reason for this! thanks:)
