You can now download iOS 10.2.1 beta 2 over OTA and ready to be installed on compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices.
This release of the second pre-release seed of iOS 10.2.1 follows six days after Apple first started testing this particular version of iOS, and just a week since the publicly issued iOS 10.2 final to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners with a model capable of installing and executing iOS 10. With the public release of iOS 10.2, Apple has not only thrown consumers a list of new features but also to those consumers with a compatible device installing it to get the most of new emojis and functionality included within.
Just after released the first beta of iOS 10.2.1 as a smaller point release, which doesn’t contain any notable or outward-facing changes that users benefited from with iOS 10.2. In fact, this specific release is all about continuous improvement, eradicating bugs and enhancing the end-user experience where possible.
To that extent, you can imagine about what Apple has potentially integrated within iOS 10.2.1, we here have a rather large installation that looks to take the work introduced with iOS 10.2, and continue to build on top of that foundation to ensure that the overarching iOS 10.2.x experience is a positive and user-friendly one.
Now that the iOS 10.2.1 beta 2 with a number 14D15 is available to download immediately over-the-air (from Settings > General > Software Update) for those device owners with a beta configuration profile installed on their devices. One more time, this latest build of iOS intended for developers testing, which is this instance is iOS 10.2.1.
For those actually prefer getting iOS 10.2.1 installed on their test devices using an old process, the latest beta 2 IPSW file can be downloaded from Apple’s developer portal provided you are an enrolled member of the Apple Developer Program. Once downloaded, it can be installed onto the device using iTunes.
We’ll surely update the post once we find its release notes and changelog in this build. While public beta build of iOS 10.2.1 beta 2 is not available as yet, it’s only a matter of time before Apple makes it available to those registered on Apple Beta Software Program.
Update X1: Also seeded today is macOS 10.12.3 beta 2. More details can be found here and we let you know when it hits the public beta channel.
