What's new in iOS 10.2? Apple releases second beta with new TV app

Apple TV App

One week after releasing the original iOS 10.2 beta to the general public, Apple has released the second beta to developers. The updated beta includes Apple's new TV app, which was originally announced at the iPhone-maker's October 27 Mac event. Apple claims the TV app is going to “completely change" how iOS and Apple TV users watch television.

The app works as a sort of TV guide that helps users locate their favorite television shows and movies across Apple devices and different platforms. The app supports other Apple services, such as Siri Live Tune-In and Single Sign-On, which will be included in the tvOS 10.1 update when it is officially released later this year.

iOS App of the Week: Hype - Interactive Live Video

Hype

The king of live streaming apps, Periscope, is popular due to its simplicity. All it takes is around three taps for anyone with a smartphone to broadcast from anywhere in the world. Periscope doesn't require a lot of setup, there's no confusing settings, and users can easily interact with live streams. The simple controls, easy Twitter integration and current events, such as the election, have made Periscope one the most popular live streaming services available on the App Store. The original creators of Vine look to change that with their new live streaming app Hype.
