On Tuesday, Apple seeded the fourth betas of iOS 14.2, iPadOS 14.2, and tvOS 14.2 to developers. This follows the public launch of iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1 earlier in the day. The latest pre-release software is available to download directly from Apple’s Developer Center, and can also be downloaded as an over-the-air (OTA) update on registered devices.
As far as what’s new in the latest beta, that remains to be seen. However, it’s possible that Apple does add some new features with the latest beta seed. If that is the case, we will update this post accordingly.
With iOS 14.2, Apple is welcoming Shazam as a built-in feature with the mobile operating system. There is a new Control Center option for Shazam that makes launching music recognition much easier. The feature can now even recognize music while you’re listening to it on your AirPods.
In addition to the change for Shazam, the Now Playing widget in Control Center has been redesigned and improved. In iOS 14.2, this widget will now show recently played music when you’re not currently listening to anything. AirPlay’s interface is tweaked in the new software as well.
iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 also includes the newest batch of emoji.
The latest beta for iOS 14.2, iPadOS 14.2, and tvOS 14.2 is available now.
