Apple Releases First Betas of iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 to Developers [Updated]
Apple today seeded the first betas of upcoming iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 updates to developers, just one day after releasing the iOS 14 update and a few hours after hinting at the iOS 14.2 beta in an Xcode beta update.
iOS and iPadOS 14.2 can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after the proper developer profile has been installed.

Update: The iOS 14.2 update can now be downloaded over the air.
