After an unusual and surprising move from Apple, today they released iOS 10.2.1 Beta 4 for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. Just three days earlier they pushed Beta 3 to its registered developers and usually from previous Apple’s pattern of pushing updates, its too early as in most cases next update comes after a week or two.
