Apple has its sights set on the next major update to all of its popular platforms. Until that happens, though, the company has another minor update in the works. Namely, iOS 14.7.
As such, the company today has released another round of beta seeds to developers (and public beta testers). Today, Apple seeded the fifth betas of iOS 14.7, iPadOS 14.7, macOS 11.5 Big Sur, watchOS 7.6, and tvOS 14.7 to developers and public beta testers. As is par for the course, this software should not be installed on a daily driver, just in case it’s still a little rough around the edges.
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. The same can be said for the public betas as well. If you are already properly registered, you can download the latest beta(s) as an over-the-air update.
As far as what’s new, there were at least a couple of new things added. First, the new softwaresupports 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.
The latest betas are available now. We’re probably on the brink of a public launch in the very near future at this point.
