Earlier today, Apple seeded the sixth beta of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 to developers. Here’s what’s new in the prerelease software.
While Apple continues to tweak the formula for its next major update for iOS and iPadOS, the company continues to add new features and other elements to the software ahead of its public launch. That is the case this time around as well. We’ve put together a quick breakdown of what new things Apple added to iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 with the sixth beta.
iOS 14 beta 6 new additions
New splash screen for Apple Maps
- The one big change/new addition for the sixth beta of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 is the inclusion of a new splash screen in the Apple Maps app. The image just above shows it (via 9to5Mac) off. You’ll see this splash screen when you open Apple Maps for the first time after updating to iOS 14.
AirPods Pro spatial audio
- One of the new feature for AirPods Pro is Spatial Audio, a more robust sound profile for folks who own the more expensive truly wireless headphones. There is a new toggle within the Setting app to turn on the feature. You can find it by opening Settings –> Accessibility –> AirPods. This feature will also be accessible via a toggle in Control Center, as well as Bluetooth settings. Spatial Audio is still not working in the sixth beta, though.
And so far, that’s it! Not a lot of new features added to the mix, but there are some bug fixes with this developer beta as well.
