Apple has rolled out the fifth iOS 10.2 beta development release, just four days after the release of the fourth beta build. iOS 10.2 beta 5 carries the build number 14C89, and is now available for public beta testers.

What's New In The Fifth iOS 10.2 Beta Build

The new build consumes only 59.2 MB of space, which is just par for the course because it doesn't come with exciting new changes aside from a fix that straightens out a bug from the fourth public beta. That bug caused some versions of iTunes to randomly delete content on the recently introduced TV app for iPhone.

The fifth build also comes with a fix for iPod touch owners who were previously treated to an error message that said "TV is unavailable" upon accessing the app. This is not the case anymore with the latest public build, as Apple has fixed the bug.

However, an old problem still persists which disables the user from reinstalling the TV app once it's deleted.

The SOS feature, which first appeared on the Apple Watch Series 2 and before replication onto the iPhone with the iOS 10.2's second public beta release, still remains exclusive in India.

How To Download iOS 10.2 Beta 5

Those already enrolled in Apple's Beta Software Program will receive iOS 10.2 beta 5 as an over-the-air update, while users who aren't may enroll for free on Apple's site. For iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners who prefer to skip the fuss, the fifth beta release will likely be the last build before iOS 10.2 officially rolls out in the next few weeks, so it's best to just hold out for the official release.

iOS 10. 2 introduces full support for Unicode 9.0, which means more types of emojis and improved version of older ones. In terms of cosmetics, the software update will also add a few wallpaper options and a "Celebrate" screen effect for iMessage.

Preserve settings for the camera app, new methods to organize content in Apple Music and an emergency contact notification are only some of the new additions in iOS 10.2. The latest software will also include an accompanying TV widget for the new TV app, a feedback app, a "press and hold to speak" accessibility feature and the return of star ratings on the music app.
