What’s New in iOS 10.1 Beta 2 [VIDEO]

Earlier this week, Apple released iOS 10.1 beta 2 for developers and yesterday for Public Beta testers. If you want to find out what’s new in this smaller release, YouTube channel EverythingApplePro has detailed the changes in a new video.

Ios 10 1 beta 2

In a nutshell, here’s what’s new:

  • Notifications are now working from the Lockscreen
  • New: option to replay iMessage effects
  • Reduce Motion – Auto Play Message Effects now actually works
  • No more dots indicator dots in the sending GIF/app menu within iMessage
  • Fix for iPad motion data handling
Of course, iOS 10.1 beta comes with the new Portrait camera mode (beta) for iPhone 7 Plus users. The effect works well in its early stages and in the right lighting, is downright impressive. Check out our recent image taken below (iOS 10.1 beta 1):

As for Geekbench results, beta 2 saw a score just slightly lower than beta 1, but overall, the beta is deemed “smooth” and “works well.”

    Battery life is awful on this beta. Don’t do it.

  • Daniel

    I’m not receiving notifications on beta 1 . Only when I’m on the phone do I get them

  • Jason Penner

    Wifi speeds seem to be capped at 50meg down. I could hit the max Shaw provides of 178meg last on beta . Does anyone know when the transcriptive beta started in voicemails? I just stumbled upon it the other day and love it!

  • Hmm. We’ll give a shot later with Shaw once we update to the second beta.
    As for the Transcription, it appeared for us when we first updated to iOS 10–it’s pretty good so far!
