Apple Watch's ECG feature is now more widely available around the world with support for 30 new countries added to the recent watchOS 7.6 software update.
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.
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 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.
Apple seeded the first developer beta of iOS 14.6 even before the company released iOS 14.5 to the public. But now that that major update is out there, the company is pushing ahead with the next one.
Apple has been working on the next update for iPhone and iPad for quite some time, seeding more than half dozen betas in the process. But now iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 are now live.
The quest to pwn the Apple Watch is one that has received oodles of attention over the years, and while the concept is most certainly possible, it hasn’t quite reached the level of fruition that most jailbreakers would expect – especially when compared with the jailbreak offerings for iPhones and iPads.
Much of this has to do with the uncertainty of an Apple Watch jailbreak’s usefulness in addition to concerns related to restoring the Apple Watch’s firmware in the event of catastrophic errors (respring loops, etc.), but that hasn’t stopped some jailbreak developers from dabbling with the idea.
Apple has been working on updating its popular operating systems over the last few months, with iOS 14.5 set to launch next week. Before that happens, though, Apple's ready with another beta.
