Apple's current version of macOS, Monterey, might not be everyone's cup of tea. As a result, there are certainly still some Mac users out there in the wild who are running the previous version, Big Sur, on their machine(s). In an effort to help keep those folks safe and secure while using the desktop operating system, Apple's released a software update with security fixes in tow.
With macOS 12 Monterey on the way, most of the attention is on that future release. However, Apple isn't quite done with macOS 11 Big Sur. The company is releasing a new software update for the desktop operating system, albeit a minor one.
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.
While Apple is moving towards the future release of iOS 15, the company isn't quite ready to give up on iOS 14 just yet. As a result, the company is still beta testing another minor update for that version of the mobile operating system. And today, there's a new beta.
Earlier this month, Apple officially unveiled iOS 15 and every other major update coming to the company's operating systems. However, updates for iOS 14 and other current OS versions aren't quite finished yet. Today, Apple has seeded the latest betas for iOS 14, iPadOS 14, macOS 11.5 Big Sur, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14.
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.
With this year's Worldwide Developers Conference set to start next week, we're going to get a lot of answers for questions floating around out there. Of course, one of those questions is what Apple plans on calling the next version of its desktop operating system. It's always fun to watch Apple unveil it, and this year will probably be no different.
Apple has not yet released iOS 14.6 to the public quite yet, but that's not stopping the company from moving right along with the next update anyway.
Apple is going to release iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 to the public very soon. Ahead of that, though, the final release candidate has been seeded to developers.
With the release of macOS 11 Big Sur, Apple welcomed a primarily iOS-focused feature to the desktop: Control Center. Now that it's been available for a few months, it's time to get your thoughts.
Apple is moving right along, preparing its major platforms for the next update. Today, a new beta seed is available to developers.
Apple launched the latest major update to iOS 14 in late April. Now, the company is issuing another update, this one focused on one aspect of the latest software.
