Another week and another update for iPhones and iPads. Apple releases iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 updates to everyone. Last week Apple released the stable public build of iOS 14.5 after a long run of beta testing. Both the latest iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 updates are available for supported iPhones and iPads. Here you will know what’s new in the latest iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 updates.
The iOS 14.5 is the biggest update in the iOS 14 series which brings many new features that we discussed in the last article. And the latest iOS 14.5.1 is a small incremental update that is mainly for bug fixes. We don’t generally see two public updates within one or two weeks until there’s an important bug fix or security patch. For those who don’t know there is already beta testing going on for the next iOS update which is iOS 14.6. But that’s only for developers and beta testers.
iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 are not the only updates released. Apple also released iOS 12.5.3, watchOS 7.4.1, and macOS Big Sur 11.3.1 updates. Both iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 updates are available with build version 18E212. As you know it’s a small incremental update, you will not find any impressive changes on this update.

Download iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1
The iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 updates are available to everyone with the supported iPhones and iPads. Since it is a public update, you must have already received the update on your iPhone or iPad. You can also check for the update manually by going to Settings > Software Update. And there click on the Download & Install button to get the update.
In case you have installed a beta profile on your iPhone or iPad for beta testing. Then you will not receive the update on your phone. In that case, you can remove the beta profile to get the latest stable iOS 14.5.1 update. But remember you will not receive beta updates unless you reinstall the beta profile.
How to Remove Beta Profile from iPhone and iPad
- Open Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
- Go to General and then Profile.
- Now it will show the Beta profile installed on your iPhone or iPad.
- Click on the available beta profile.
- Then click on the Remove Profile button.
- If it asks for the passcode, then enter your device passcode and click the Remove button.
And if your iPhone/iPad running a higher version, then you need to downgrade your Apple device. But it will remove all data from your iPhone. So, we don’t recommend downgrade unless you want to Jailbreak iPhone or iPad.
