Apple releases iOS 10.2 beta with new 'Preserve Camera Settings' feature
It looks like Apple has outed the first beta version of the upcoming iOS 10.2 update. Available for registered developers only, it can be downloaded over the air or via Apple's Developer Center. There aren't many updates and improvements to discuss in the operating system's new build. There are three new wallpaper options, a new video widget, and new emoji.

Apple also tweaked the camera app with the addition of the "Preserve Camera Settings" feature. In iOS 10.2, rather than resetting the camera settings after every close of the camera app, you'll get the option to retain the last camera mode, photo filter, and Live Photo setting. That sounds rather convenient!

In the meantime, Apple also released the first beta of wathOS 3.1.1 and tvOS 10.1. Neither operating system, including iOS 10.1, comes with the new TV app that Apple introduced last week at its media event.

That's nice addition for camera settings. Lot of iOS updates these days...taking cues from old windows?

I think it's because they released an unfinished OS, so they're just finishing the build while calling them "updates."

No. It's the way they look at these features. If they thought any feature is important (which they probably can and will and completely normal) they have the ability to push that feature via a simple update unlike Android which is broken in to million versions.

They're just adding features. Just about every sub-update (6.x or 6.x.x) have added features along adding more security and fixing newfound bugs or glitches. This is what I call realtime updates - keeping your device virtually up-to-date.
