Apple pushes out iOS 10.2 Beta 5

Apple pushed out iOS 10.2 Beta 5 today to developers and subscribers of the public beta program. With the small number of changes and known issues in this build, it would seem that we are very close to seeing the final version of iOS 10.2 disseminated. With the latest build of Apple's mobile operating system, there will be new wallpapers for the iPhone and 72 new emoji in line with the release of Unicode 9. Perhaps the most important new feature is the one that will allow users to authenticate their cable or satellite service just one time and be allowed to view streaming video over multiple apps without having to sign in for each one.

In addition, the Messages app gets a new "Celebration" effect and the native "Videos" app is being given a widget. The update comes just four days after iOS 10.2 Beta 4 was released. The file that was rolled out today weighs in at 1.95GB and carries the following changes:

  • The TV app should no longer crash or show “TV is unavailable” on iPod touch.
  • Syncing with iTunes 12.5 through 12.5.3 should no longer delete TV app library content.

Known Issues:

  • TV app cannot be restored after it is deleted.

Even though there is only one known issue listed, it does point to a 6th Beta on the way since we're pretty sure Apple wouldn't want the TV app to remain MIA permanently once deleted.

If Apple stays at this pace, we could see the final version of iOS 10.2 launched in a matter of weeks.

Beta 5 still had the same critical flaw (for my personal use) that betas 1-4 had: When both data and Wi-Fi are unavailable (when I'm on the subway), downloaded movies and TV shows won't load or play. No such issue on 10.1.1. Hope this is fixed before release.
