Apple started the beta process for the next update to its major platforms back in May. And now the company is moving along with the process.
On Tuesday, Apple seeded the second betas of iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 to registered developers. While there were some minor discoveries made after the first beta was seeded, it looks like this update will be minor in terms of new additions. It’s likely that Apple is aiming to smooth out any underlying issues discovered since the public launch of iOS 14.6 earlier this year.
However, if there are any new additions made to the software discovered in this latest beta, we will update this post accordingly.
Developers can download the new betas from Apple’s developer center. iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 can also be downloaded and installed as an over-the-air (OTA) update on registered devices. It’s likely that Apple will seed a corresponding public beta to those in the public beta ring in the near future.
As far as what’s new, there were at least a couple of new things added. First, the new software supports timer controls for the HomePod from within the Home app. And iOS 14.7 also adds air quality information to more countries within Apple’s stock Weather app.
In addition to that, Apple also seeded the second betas of macOS Big Sur 11.5, watchOS 7.6, and tvOS 14.7 to developers as well.
The latest betas are available now.
