Download: iOS / iPadOS 14.2 Beta 2, watchOS 7.1 Beta 2, macOS Big Sur Beta 9, tvOS 14.2 Beta 2 Released
Apple has released a ton of new beta updates today, giving developers a whole raft of new updates to install. The iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV all received new betas as part of this sizeable drop.
Starting out with iPhone and iPad, Apple just dropped iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 beta 2 to developers.
This update brings a new option to add Shazam to Control Center as well as a refreshed AirPlay 2 control interface. The update is around 1GB for those who have iOS 14.2 beta 1 installed on their devices right now.
Apple has also continued its push to get macOS Big Sur into the hands of the public with beta 9 now available for download. We don’t know for sure, but we’re expecting Apple to make macOS Big Sur available to the public within the next few weeks so its possible t his is one of the last betas to come out of Cupertino.
Apple TV also gets in on the action with tvOS 14.2 beta 2 available, while watchOS 7.1 is also available in its second beta iteration, too. All of these updates come hot on the heels of the most recent beta releases.
The iOS 14.2 beta in particular is an interesting one, with new iPhones likely to ship next month with iOS 14.1 pre-installed. We don’t expect any existing iPhone to ever get that update, with iOS 14.2 landing alongside the new iPhones.
