When iOS 10 was released earlier this year, the users witnessed major changes in the operating system. Now Apple unveiled iOS 10.2.

After undergoing seven beta tests, Apple's iOS 10.2 has finally been released to the public. The update comes with other major features and bug fixes.

The new iOS 10.2, which can be installed through iTunes or by downloading it, is available for the latest devices, iPhone 5, iPad 4th generation, and iPod touch 6th generation.

Among the features of the iOS 10.2 update is the Apple TV App, a new and unified experience for accessing contents across multiple video apps. It runs recommendations for the latest movies and TV shows, as well as let the users discover new apps and new iTunes releases.

Based on an article that appeared at Investopedia, the new TV app released on iOS devices is an aggregation of content from multiple entertainment apps and networks.

"It features a centralized interface that enables viewers to locate programs using a search bar, instead of navigating to an individual network's menus within the app itself. While it provides a single search interface, Apple TV does not play content from within its own app. Instead, the selected programs are played from within the provider's app."

The "Press and Hold to Speak" allows users to activate Siri by pressing and holding the circular home button. There is also a headphones icon in the status bar that indicates if the headphones are connected.

The update also features a single sign-on for cable TV that allows users to sign in and view the content across various TV apps.

New wallpapers and emoji have also been included in the update. A Video app widget has also been added to the lock screen, showing users the latest videos recorded and added to the Camera Roll.

Aside from those inclusions, the update also has the new Preserve Settings for the Camera App. The feature lets the user set a default setting for the Camera App.

Apple has recently pulled its WatchOS update after reports came in that the smartwatch has a faulty software, causing the device to become useless after the update.
