Today, Apple seeded the first betas of iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 to developers. As is par for the course with this type of release, the new prerelease software shouldn’t be installed on your daily driver. The software is intended for testing purposes, and mainly for developers. Apple will, of course, likely seed a corresponding public beta at some point in the near future, too.
To update, developers simply need to make sure they’re properly registered and have the proper configuration profile installed on their supported device(s). The latest beta can be downloaded from Apple’s Developer Center.
As far as what’s new? We know one thing right off the bat, as Apple confirmed the incoming feature before the first beta was seeded. The company confirmed that the App Tracking Transparency feature will go live sometime in the early spring.
As for other new features, if any, that remains to be seen. However, if Apple did add anything else to this beta, we will update this post accordingly.
Apple also seeded the first watchOS 7.4 and tvOS 14.5 betas to developers as well.
