Apple Seeds Second Betas of iOS and iPadOS 14.7 to Developers

Apple today seeded the second betas of new iOS and iPadOS 14.7 updates to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the first iOS and iPadOS 14.7 updates.

14
iOS and iPadOS 14.7 can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or over the air after the proper profile has been installed on an iPhone or iPad.

The new iOS and iPadOS 14.7 updates may be focused on under-the-hood bug performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren't able to be addressed in iOS 14.6, but a few minor features have been found.

Apple in iOS 14.7 will expand the Air Quality Index feature to additional countries that include the Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, and Canada.

When paired with the accompanying HomePod 14.7 software, iOS 14.7 will allow the Home app to set multiple timers on a ‌HomePod‌ or a HomePod mini.

Not all devices in the current line up will support iOS 15. Also, iOS 14 is still in active development and it makes sense they are releasing a point upgrade no matter a new version is coming up in the Fall. Some bugs need to be resolved, vulnerabilities patched, etc.

I guess with the cellular issues they didn't go public. Not the best beta release right before the 15 announcement.
