Release Date: Monday, November 14 2016

Build: 14C5077b

Darwin Kernel Version: 16.3.0 Mon Nov 7 21:58:42 PST 2016
Firmware Version:


Please report bugs to bugreport.apple.com (a developer account is not required to do this).

Baseband/Modem Firmware

  • iPhone 6: 5.32.00
  • iPhone 6s: 2.41.00
  • iPhone 7 Plus (QC): 1.33.00
  • iPhone 7 Plus (Intel): 1.02.15
Carrier Versions:
  • AT&T: 27.0.1
  • T-Mobile 27.0
  • Verizon 27.0
  • Three UK 27.0
  • Rogers 27.0
  • Warid 27.0
Changes:
  • The videos App has been hidden for people in the US, with the new TV app serving as a replacement. The video app can still be re-downloaded in the App Store.
  • Emergency SOS feature from Beta 2 removed. (Except in India.)
Enhancements/New Features:
  • Feedback App is back for those on the Developer Beta.
  • New Full Screen Effect in Messages - Love. (As usual, sends to anyone on any earlier build of iOS with a seperate "Send with Love" message, instead of the effect.)
Bug Fixes:
  • Weather widget now shows degrees below zero as a negative number in the forecast.
New Bugs:
  • Text entered in the Messages quick reply dialogue is sometimes still getting erased if you switch to the full messages app (like in 10.0-10.1). The text had carried over to the full messages app in earlier builds of 10.2.
  • Male Weightlifter and Male Basketball player emojis default back to the yellow skin tone every time you open the Emoji keyboard.
  • 4G/LTE speeds are signifantly less than usual but more than EDGE.
  • In low signal area iPhone 6s Plus keeping up with EDGE, rather than maintaining its 4G/LTE reception. (Workaround: Enable Airplane mode and then disable it) (Can't reproduce, LTE speeds are the same as previous builds)
  • 4G/LTE often disassosiates with its signal reception after call (cellular, network), and remains at 2G/EDGE, rather than going back to its previous state. (Workaround: Airplane mode toggle on/off) (Can't reproduce, LTE signal remains consistent after a cellular call)
  • Battery Since Last Full Recharge does not populate its timings after reboot and remains at -,-, thought its at 100%.
  • Ringtone volume distorts. (Specially for WhatsApp, Viber. VoIP)
  • Earpiece call volume is still lower. (Does not having any effect of enabling/disabling Noise Cancellation)
  • iOS 10.2 breaks compatibility with WeMo devices. Existing devices that were set up prior to 10.2 function, but new devices cannot be set up and the Wi-Fi network cannot be changed on existing devices
  • Volume for Music in general is still lower
Reoccurring Bugs:
  • Calculator app click sound still plays even when keyboard clicks are turned off.
  • Some new emojis don't have taptic feedback when selecting the skin colour.
  • The bug from Beta 1 where the Now Playing view in Music shows as full screen on iPad and has a glitched animation when closing the view is still present.
  • Two finger cursor navigation on Spotlight search still does not work as expected in landscape mode.

Hmm seems like a small build number change.
Seems like that might not really be much of an indicator really one way or another given how an updated iOS 10.1.1 build was quite a number of builds ahead of the not updated one, yet seemingly didn't have anything within iOS changed at all (likely just some installation configuration change).

The TV app has replaced videos. Whatever folder your video app was in is now the TV app

I deleted the TV app that showed up with the last beta and it reappeared when I upgraded to beta 3, along with the Feedback app returning.

Deleted it again.

Oh uh that might've been me inadvertently because I was putting in the iPhone 6 stuff and did two quick edits since I had put it in the wrong place at first.

SOS removed? Read it in the Front Page thread. I was looking forward to having that feature.
Yeah, gone for me too.

The Videos App still exists for me (Germany). So I guess it only gets replaced in countries where the new TV App is available.
