You Can Now Download & Install iOS 10.2 Public Beta for Free
Having released the developer oriented iOS 10.2 Beta just yesterday, Apple is taking things further today by releasing iOS 10.2 Public Beta software update. Unlike the developer-only release, this build is absolutely free to download, and all you are required to have is a compatible device as well as a working Apple ID.
In order to install iOS 10.2 Public Beta right now, head over to the Apple Beta Software Program website (beta.apple.com) from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Once you have opened up the page, simply sign in using your Apple ID and enroll your device. You will be required to download and install a Public Beta profile onto your device in order to receive iOS 10.2 Beta update over the air. Navigate to Settings > General > Software Update in order to complete the download and installation process.
Despite how stable iOS 10.2 is in its current form, we still recommend proceeding with caution. There's no telling where and when the software might end up being a roadblock for you when it comes to daily usage. While at the same time, there is a high chance everything will work out smoothly for you. Furthermore, battery life related issues including performance lags are common in beta releases, therefore be ready to face them while you're at it.
iOS 10.2 is a modest update to say the least and packs in a handful amount of changes. For iPhone 7 users, there are a trio of new wallpapers (linked below), whereas a new set of emoji characters have made the cut as well. All in all it's a great update and we are certain users are going to love it, regardless.
