Apple Seeds First Beta of iOS 10.2.1 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming iOS 10.2.1 update to developers, two days after releasing iOS 10.2 and three months after introducing the new iOS 10 operating system.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 10.2.1 beta from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.

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.

Seems like my iPhone 7 Plus drains power faster on the latest official release. Anyone else?

well -that's the question - are people just thrill of getting new software but then not provide any feedback?


That's probably what happens. People download the betas because they're excited to get an update, but aren't reporting bugs. I know I don't submit as many as I probably should.

AWw man yer so clever, wish I would have thought of that.

Wouldn't be possible for you to comprehend that iOS has only ever shown a percentage and never an "estimated time remaining", which is the same as macOS now.
