Apple Releases iOS 16.2 Beta 2 To Developers

Apple has today released iOS 16.2 beta 2 to developers, giving them their next glimpse at what will be coming to the public later this year.

The new update can be downloaded by all developers who have the correct profile installed right now, while the IPSW files are also going to be available via the Apple developer website for those who want them.

We can also expect a public beta release of iOS 16.2 to be made available tomorrow assuming no major issues are discovered in this release.

While not the biggest of Apple’s iOS releases, the iOS 16.2 update does still have some notable changes. The first is that it includes the Freeform app as a way for teams to take notes and more all while sharing a single document. That feature will also be available across iPad and Mac, too.

Other changes include an updated Home app infrastructure as well as a big fix that deals with delayed app closing animations, too.

Today’s beta update for iOS 16.2 comes alongside betas for iPadOS 16.2, macOS Ventura 13.1, watchOS 9.2, and tvOS 16.2. All betas are now available via their respective update mechanisms.

While Apple hasn’t confirmed when it will make iOS 16.2 available to the public, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has already pointed to an expected release in the middle of September, meaning there won’t be too many more betas before the update is rolled out to everyone.
