iOS 14.4 Beta 2 Update – What’s New
As usual, the update changelog only includes bug fixes and performance improvement. In the first beta users experienced some bugs including flickering issues on some devices. Other known issues are Green Tint, cellular data, etc to some iPhone users.
Some users have reported that the flickering and green tint issue is not fixed yet. Expectedly, it will solve other issues from iOS 14.4 Beta 1.
The device performance is smooth and some users gave feedback that the stutter is no longer there in the second beta. We will update this section once we find new features, bug fixes, and other changes. So, let’s now head to the installation guide.
