With no new features I'm surprised they're calling it 14.7 and not 14.6.1 or whatever.

Really hopeful that the issues I’ve had with CarPlay since 14.5 dropped will be resolved. Buggy unfixable CarPlay makes me sad. :(
Might be just you. Or the head unit.

Ive been tempted to do this. Ever since public beta came out and instead of using more in-house Q/A (I am assuming) the OS has gone to ****. Here is my stupid theory and im sure some ass hat on here is going to roll their eyes cause well they are an armchair know it all. We are nerds. we download the iOS beta. we deal with the restarts, the random crashes etc. yes these crash reports get sent to apple but have you ever filled out a feedback form. Twice ive had two sit in the outbox because either the log was still collecting or I didn't have time to fill wait for it to upload. So a few weeks later when I got to submit another "feedback" its sitting in there undelivered.

So.. in my personal uneducated opinion I think the public betas may not be worth the effort and instead release reliable software so the next day apple doesn't have to releasee another patch...
When was last time that happened to you? What you describe was endemically frustrating. But the last year the feedback has run well from my 6S and iP2.
