iOS 16.2 beta

Two weeks after releasing the first iOS 16.2 developer beta, Apple today released iOS 16.2 Beta 2 to registered developers. Along with the new iOS build, Apple has also released watchOS 9.2 and iPadOS 16.2 Beta 2 to developers. 

You can download the latest build on your iPhone by navigating to Settings → General → Software Update. The update should show up on your iPhone if the developer beta profile is installed on your device. However, if you are on the public beta channel, you will get the update within the next 24 hours. We will update this post as and when the public beta build is released.

Although there are no major bugs in iOS 16.2, we still recommend installing it on a secondary device. This new version might contain bugs, so we recommend you wait until the stable version is released before installing it on your main iPhone.

Coming to iOS 16.2 compatibility, all the devices eligible to install iOS 16 can download the latest build. It’s worth noting that iOS 16 is compatible only with the iPhone 8 and models released after it. Support for several older iPhones, including the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and original iPhone SE, has been dropped.

The first iOS 16.2 beta brought many changes, including the new Freeform app, external display support for Stage Manager on compatible iPads, revamped Home app architecture, and more. It is currently unknown what the new beta build brings. We are still in the middle of installing the latest iOS beta build, and it remains to be seen what Apple has added to it.
