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.

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

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.
