Couple emoji fixes...gay pride flag works now. The two columns of families next to the clothing now work, too.

Still can't adjust the skin tone on the handshake emoji though.

I hope this fixes watch notifications. I heard they were wonky in 10.2B1. I'm very tempted to play the beta game again, but don't want to mess up my watch again.

Someone post proof the animations are fixed for iphone 7. Because people say it's fixed every beta when it's not fixed.

No one is going to go through that effort. People need to put it on their phone and see for themselves.
Jayson A and I have gone through the effort. Because it benefits the community. It takes maybe 5 minutes. Its the only way tot prove that it has been fixed. The animation is running 6 frats at 60fps, so .1 of a second. Sometimes the naked eye cannot see .1 second of movement.

The point was, orrrrrr actually install the beta? If it's not fixed it still doesn't anything hurt to update over Beta 1 regardless.

People are just lazy and demanding. And animations are subjective clearly.
