Apple Releases iOS 10.2 Beta 3

Following the release of iOS 10.2 Beta 2 just one week ago, the company has officially launched an all-new build of its latest and greatest mobile operating system, iOS 10.2 Beta 3 build number 14C5077b, to developers for download and testing.

iOS 10.2 Beta 3 brings some new features as well as other enhancements such as:

  • A new "Send With Love" Screen Effect option has been added in Messages that sends a heart along with a text message
  • In the Settings app, there's a new section for the TV app. It allows users to choose whether to use cellular data for playback and choose the streaming quality over Wi-Fi and Cellular. There's also an option to choose whether to make purchases and rentals from the store in HD or SD
  • The TV app now supports the "Up Next" feature that keeps track of the television shows and movies you're watching, saving your place or recommending next episodes across multiple devices
  • The Videos app has been removed from iOS entirely in the United States and replaced with the TV app 
iOS 10.2 Beta 3 is now rolling out as a free update through Software Update or via iOS Dev Center for registered developers.
