Apple Releases iOS 14.7 Release Candidate Ahead Of Its Release To The Public
Apple today released an updated beta version of its iOS 14.7 update, making what Apple believes to be a Release Candidate ready for testing.
Developers can download the update via the usual Software Update mechanism so long as they have the required beta profile installed. Those who are on the public beta program can also install the update, too.
Apple’s release notes include the changes that have been made in this update, including the addition of support for the just-announced MagSafe Battery Pack. Users will need to have iOS 14.7 installed to use the battery pack.
The full list of changes includes:
MagSafe Battery Pack support for iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
Apple Card Family adds the option to combine credit limits and share one co-owned account with an existing Apple Card user
Home app adds the ability to manage timers on HomePod
Air quality information is now available in Weather and Maps for Canada, France, Italy, Netherlands, South Korea, and Spain
Podcasts library allows you to choose to see all shows or only followed shows
Share playlist menu option missing in Apple Music
Dolby Atmos and Apple Music lossless audio playback may unexpectedly stop
Battery service message that may have disappeared after reboot on some iPhone 11 models is restored
Braille displays could show invalid information while composing Mail messages
Apple’s iOS 14.7 update is likely now only a matter of days away, especially when you remember that the MagSafe Battery Pack goes on sale next week and requires it to function.
