Apple seeds second Developer Betas of iOS 10.2, tvOS 10.1, and watchOS 3.1.1, adds TV app

Apple today released the second Developer Betas for iOS 10.2, tvOS 10.1, and watchOS 3.1.1. All three builds come exactly seven days after their predecessors, but the one thing that's notably missing is macOS 10.12.2 Sierra. Interestingly, the company did seed a second build of 10.12.2 (16C32f) on Wednesday, but it's not called beta 2.

The biggest change in iOS 10.2 beta 2 is the addition of the TV app, which you'll now find pre-installed on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. You can also click the power button five times to call emergency services.

There were also a number of new additions with iOS 10.2 in the first build, which include Unicode 9 emojis (that's right folks, bacon), new wallpapers, a Videos widget, Health data fixes, and a setting to keep your Camera mode from the last time that you used it (be warned; if you don't utilize this setting, Live Photos will now be turned on every time you launch Camera).

Interestingly, tvOS 10.1 beta 2 still doesn't include the new TV app, which seems odd given that it's the main platform that the app is aimed for. watchOS 3.1.1 doesn't include much that's new either, but that's expected given the version number.
