Members of Apple's public beta program can now access a second pre-release build of iOS 10.2, packing in newly redesigned emoji and bug fixes.

Registered devices can now access iOS 10.2 public beta 2 via Software Update in their device's Settings app. Alternatively, it can also be installed via a Mac or PC with iTunes.

The stand-out feature of iOS 10.2 is a collection of new and refreshed emoji, all of which conform with Unicode 9.0.

The update also boasts a widget for the Videos app, a "Preserve Camera" setting, and a "Press and Hold to Speak" menu under the home button's Accessibility settings.

For iPhone 7 and 7 Plus owners, the update includes three new wallpapers: Droplet Blue, Droplet Red, and Droplet Yellow. This may be a response to complaints about iOS 10, which came with only one new wallpaper when it launched this September.
