Apple today seeded the third betas of its new iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 updates to developers and public beta testers. The new seeds come just one week following the first betas of iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6.
Beta builds are available to developers through the Apple Developer Center or over the air on the devices with the proper configuration installed.
Public builds of the new operating systems can be downloaded via the Apple Beta Software Program website by users signed up to take part in the testing program. If you’re interested in trying out the betas of the upcoming operating systems you can sign up for the program by clicking the same link.
At this point in time, it appears the new betas consist of under-the-hood bug performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren’t able to be addressed in iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5. The beta adds a new feature that allows an email address to be entered as a contact method for Lost Mode instead of a phone number. The beta also lays the groundwork for Apple Card Family, a feature that Apple unveiled at its April event.
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas on their daily driver iPhone or iPad, instead only install betas on a device set aside for testing purposes.
