It's not yet clear what features are included in iOS 10.2.1, but as a minor 10.2.x update, it's likely to focus on bug fixes and performance improvements rather than major outward-facing changes.

iOS 10.2.1 comes shortly after the release of iOS 10.2, a major update that brought new emoji, the TV app, new Messages Screen Effects, Music improvements, and a whole slew of bug fixes.

Maybe they will actually introduce working features that they supposed to introduce in 10.2, for example 'Preserve Settings' for the Camera.

Don't really understand how they can spend months testing and implementing new features, having many beta testers sending feeback, and still deliver unfinished product.
