After announcing Apple Music Spatial Audio and Lossless Audio features coming in June, Apple has now announced the availability of Release Candidate version of iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6.

Alongside the two aforementioned releases, Apple has also released RC versions of watchOS 7.5 for the Apple Watch and tvOS 14.6 for Apple TV. macOS Big Sur 11.4 Release Candidate is also out to developers today.

As far as iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 are concerned, they includes support for Apple Music’s new Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos and Lossless Audio features. v14.6 also includes a new feature for AirTag which allows an email address to be added as a contact method for Lost Mode in addition to phone number. iOS 14.6 has support for Podcast Subscriptions, as well as Apple Card Family features, both of which Apple recently announced at its Spring event.

Full changelog is as follows:

– ‌Apple Card‌ Family adds support for families to track expenses, manage spending with optional limits and controls, and build credit together
