Apple has released iOS 10.2 to the public, marking the launch of the second major update to the iOS 10 operating system since its release in September.

The iOS 10.2 update is available as a free-over-the-air update for all iOS 10 users, and it can also be downloaded via iTunes.

Apple has introduced new features and design tweaks to iOS 10.2 which includes a new “TV” app (exclusive only to US users for now), for watching various TV shows, subscribing to premium content, and streaming it via the app.

Apple Music app has been updated as well and iOS users can now just swipe up the Now Playing screen and it will let them access Shuffle, Repeat, and Up Next when listening to Music.

There’s also a new SOS feature that will call emergency services when the power button on the iPhone is pressed five times. According to Apple’s release notes, SOS works in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, UK, and the US. Settings for SOS are available in the Settings app under the General section.

A range of new emoji is included in the update, like clown face, face palm, selfie, fox face, owl, bacon, avocado, croissant, and more. There are more than a hundred new emoji, including several profession emoji available in both male and female genders. Apple has also redesigned many existing emoji, adding more detail to make them look more realistic.

This update will be available for iPhone 5 and later devices, iPad 4th generation, and later devices, and iPod touch 6th generation and later devices.
