Apple recently confirmed that iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 will be available to the Public by this month. And with the release of iOS 14.5 Beta 7 and iPadOS 14.5 Beta 7, the update is one step closer to the official release. Yes, we have to wait as Apple keeps surprising with beta updates. iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 are going to a big update after iOS 14 & iPadOS 14.5 respectively. Here you will know about iOS 14.5 Beta 7 and iPadOS 14.5 Beta 7 updates.
Both iOS 14.5 Beta 7 and iPadOS 14.5 Beta 7 are available for Developers as well as Public Beta testers. And if you are a beta tester you can get the latest update. Since it is a regular update, you will find some bug fixes and a few changes as well. We hope within a week we get to see the iOS 14.5 RC, but we can’t be sure considering back-to-back beta releases from Apple.
Apple also released watchOS 7.4 Beta 7, tvOS 14.5 Beta 7 along with iOS 14.5 Beta 7, and iPadOS 14.5 Beta 7. Both iOS 14.5 Beta 7 and iPadOS 14.5 Beta 7 updates come with the build version 18E5198a. Officially the update only mentioned bug fixes.
The update doesn’t come with any Modem update. It means if you have issues regarding connectivity, then it is unlikely to fix in this update. There aren’t many new changes but Apple released the Find My Network which is available for iOS 14.3 and newer. When you open the Find My app it will show the new Network option.
Since the update doesn’t come with any new updates, we can expect this to be the last update. It means soon everyone will be able to try new features with iOS 14.5 public release.
