Apple has released the second beta updates for iOS 14.6, iPadOS 14.6, watchOS 7.5, and tvOS 14.6 to developers. There are no new visual changes in these updates, as they only feature under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements.
iOS 14.6 beta 2 and iPadOS 14.6 beta 2
Apple had released the first beta builds for iOS 14.6, watchOS 7.5, and tvOS 14.6 over a week ago. The only noticeable change found in these updates was limited to iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6. This change is to the software update mechanism in iPhone and iPad, which allows users to upgrade to the latest release candidate without removing the beta profile. Users can also choose to update to the next beta later on, or simply uninstall the beta profile to exist the beta program.
iOS 14.5 was recently released with a large number of new features ability. It allows users to unlock Face ID-equipped iPhone using an Apple Watch while wearing a mask, over 200 new emojis, improvements to Music, Reminders, and News apps, support for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X controllers, and much more.
watchOS 7.5 beta 2
Apple’s release notes for watchOS 7.5 beta 2 do not mention anything at all. The last update, watchOS 7.4, released just a few days ago and was a major update. It features the ability to unlock an iPhone with Face ID while wearing a mask, the ability to classify Bluetooth devices, support for streaming audio and video content from Apple Fitness+ workouts to AirPlay 2 devices, and ECG and irregular heart rhythm notifications support for Australia and Vietnam.
tvOS 14.6 beta 2
tvOS 14.6 beta 2 also does not feature any new release notes, just like the other beta software updates released today.
tvOS 14.5 released a few days ago with support for new PlayStation 5 DualSense and Xbox Series X controllers, and a new color balance feature that lets users tune Apple TV’s screen colors using Face ID equipped iPhones.
Noticeably missing from this list of software updates is macOS. Ever since macOS Big Sur 11.3 was released, the company has not released any new beta updates for it.
