Apple Seeds Second Betas of iOS and iPadOS 14.6 to Developers

Apple today seeded the second betas of new iOS and iPadOS 14.6 updates to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the first iOS and iPadOS 14.6 updates.

iOS 14 on iPhone feature emergency
iOS and iPadOS 14.6 can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after the proper profile has been installed on an iPhone or iPad.

iOS and iPadOS 14.6 appear to be more minor changes focusing on under-the-hood bug performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren't able to be addressed in iOS 14.5. We didn't find any notable features in the first beta, but we'll update this article should anything new be found in the second beta.

14.5 was a great release across the board. More of this please Apple.

It’s amazing to me that members here always complain that Apple releases software too frequently as it’s too often half-baked and buggy, and then complains when they take their time and then release a solid update.

People just enjoy complaining. Most people work for a company and they hate it that the company invests their money in idiotic things. Then they're happy when they receive their paychecks. ?
