In a few weeks we expect Apple's iOS 10.2 to come out, and in case you didn't know it will
have a lot of new and helpful features for the average user. Here's a short list of some of them:
Emergency SOS -- This is in our view the most important and useful feature of the updated OS.
It's an emergency feature that first appeared on the Apple Watch and will now be available on all iOS
devices. In the event of an emergency, it will allow you to call via 911 the proper authorities without
having to take the phone out of your purse or pocket.
It's a great new feature. Simply press the on/off button five times in a row to initiate a three-second
countdown which will connect you to the emergency services in one of fourteen participating countries:
Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Britain, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain and
the United States.
If you've set up emergency contacts in your health app, it will also allow you to alert them that
a 911 call has been placed on your behalf, along with the information about your location. The feature
is activated by default on the beta version, but can be easily deactivated from the Settings menu under
Keep your original camera settings -- Instead of defaulting to iOS' camera factory settings every time
you launch the app, soon you'll be able to choose what mode or filter to open on.
Simply scroll down to the new Preserve Settings option under Photos and Camera in the Settings and
select which ones you want to keep, including the live photos features.
Go back to your original text from a quick response -- If you've ever lost what you were writing in
the quick response bubble when you switch to fullscreen in Messages mid sentence, this annoying bug has
been fixed in iOS 10.2, meaning you can get back to where you left off in your text message when you
click to open the full screen message from the lock screen or preview.
New emojis -- Your iPhone or iPad keyboards will be getting no less than seventy-two new emojis with
the new update to iOS 10.2. This includes notable smiley and sick faces, new professions that include both
men and women, more food essentials and a selfie arm, to name a few.
Celebration message screen -- There's a new Celebration screen filter in the Messages app on iOS 10.2.
To access it, simply press or 3D touch the arrow on the chat bubble next to your message, toggle to
screen and swipe to the last option.
The Sparkler animation comes complete with haptic feedback to help you get your celebration message
across. Some iPhone users may find this new feature somewhat helpful, although we don't see the
importance of it.
A new TV app -- There's a new TV app on the 10.2 that Apple recently demonstrated in its latest
keynote and it's coming to iOS devices with iOS 10.2. It's already available to some users on the developer's
However, we updated three different devices and were still unable to get the app, but it should automatically
load on your device when it launches in the next three to four weeks.
The TV app is meant to be a central hub for TV content and various video subscriptions such as Netflix that
will curate content for you and suggest new shows based on your preferences like the For You section in Apple
