Over 50 changes have been discovered by developers, bring changes to everything from Apple Music to widgets. A lot of the changes are very minor UI tweaks that would probably go unnoticed by many users, but Apple has also added some huge additions to the home button, Messages, Notification Center and much more.
Here’s what’s new in iOS 10 beta 2:
New Sounds: Wheel interfaces like the Alarm app now have a new sound when you spin through numbers. The keyboard click sound has been changed back to the original sound from iOS 9.

Apple Music: The huge text can now be shrunk down to a less comically large size via the Settings app. Downloaded Music has been renamed to Downloads. Playlists that have been downloaded now have a badge and there’s now a shuffle button at the top. The Now Playing screen now shows where the audio is being output to and you can change it from that screen instead of bringing up Control Center. iCloud Music Library is more friendly and can be activated from the Music app.

From the Settings, you can choose to send images as low quality to save on data.
