New Public Beta Updates Are Now Available for Testers - iOS 10.2 & macOS 10.12.2
Hot on the heels of yesterday's developer oriented release, Apple has today released iOS 10.2 Public Beta 2. Just like its developer counterpart, the new Public Beta build is available to download over the air, which means you do not have to tether your device to iTunes in order to download and install it.
In order to install iOS 10.2 Public Beta 2 onto your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch right now, first of all make sure you are connected to a WiFi network. If your device's battery is under 50% then the installation process won't move forward. Therefore we recommend keeping your device's charger at hand, regardless. Once you have fulfilled those requirements, head over to Settings > General > Software Update. The latest build will show itself in a few seconds, waiting to be downloaded. Tap on the Download and Install button to move things forward. You will be required to restart your device in order to complete installation therefore be vary of this fact.
macOS 10.12.2 Public Beta 2 is also available to download, and you can grab the latest build straight from the Mac App Store. In order to kick things off, save all your work and connect to a stable WiFi network. Once that is out of the way, launch the Mac App Store and click on the Updates tab at the top of the window. Wait for the Mac App Store to refresh properly. Once the update is available, simply tap on the Update button to kick things off. Just like iOS 10.2, macOS 10.12.2 will require you to restart your device as well, therefore save all your work before going ahead.
iOS 10.2 and macOS 10.12.2 Public Beta can be installed for free right away. All you have to do is head over to beta.apple.com, sign up with your Apple ID and enroll your devices. Once your devices are enrolled, you'll get the update over the air, ready to be installed. Last but not the least, make sure you install pre-release software on a device that is not your daily driver. There's no telling where and when the software might give up on you, freezing all over the place while also crashing around corners. If you are absolutely fine with that then go ahead with the installation.
