What I wouldn't give to have this update-a-week madness stop.
Then remove the beta profile. Nobody’s making you participate.

They're releasing iOS 14.6 before 14.5 is even out yet? Weird flex, but okay.
Its the way its usually done. One beta cycle ends, another takes off. ;)

Why does it matter that 14.5 isnt general release. It was already made release candidate last week. This allows us to continue testing future releases rather than sitting around waiting. Downloading on ios and ipados now. 4.65GB
