Apple finally released the final version of iOS 10.2 to the public which includes several new features and improvements. If you’ve installed iOS 10.2, but want to downgrade back to iOS 10.1.1, because you want to prepare for the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak or you found it too buggy or it is draining battery life then we’ve covered.
iOS 10, iOS 10.1, iOS 10.2
The iOS 10.2 update released by Apple earlier in the week is the last major update for its mobile operating system from the company for quite a while. Besides bringing a plethora of minor new features and enhancements, speed tests show that iOS 10.2 also brings some minor improvements to performance on older iPhones.
Yesterday, Apple released iOS 10.2 with a plethora of minor new features, bug fixes, and enhancements. Among the myriad of changes, Apple also snuck in 104 new emoji along with support for Unicode 9 emoji. Additionally, Apple has redesigned almost every emoji with higher resolution textures to make them look sharper.
Despite being a point release, iOS 10.2 comes with a number of new features and changes. As we have seen with the release of any major new iOS release, a speed test comparison follows with the latest released version and the older version to see how it affects performance, especially on older devices.
When it came to iOS 10, one of the biggest gripes of long time Apple users wasn’t the slight pivot to the overarching design language. It was the removal of the Star rating feature in the Music app. For someone who’s been using this feature in iTunes for more than a decade, seeing it disappear from the iPhone would of course not be pleasing. Well, Apple heard your outcry and they’ve brought it back, kind of. It’s not enabled by default and it’s only available if you upgrade to iOS 10.2.
For a point-one update, iOS 10.2 is jam packed with some interesting, some amusing and some very useful features. There’s the whole new TV app, 70+ new emojis and some much important UI and feature fixes to the Music app.
Apple has officially released iOS 10.2 to the public, which includes a variety of new and noteworthy additions.
Apple has seeded another beta version of its upcoming iOS 10.2, which should see a public launch soon.
