Apple’s iOS 14.6 update arrived in late May with new features, including another way to locate lost AirTags trackers and high-fidelity Apple Music support. But we’re already looking ahead to Update iOS 14.7, which is currently available as a public beta.Apple Update iOS 14.7 appears to be another small update. The big update arrived with iOS 14.5 in April, which includes the ability to unlock your iPhone with Face ID while wearing a mask, stop apps from tracking you for advertising purposes and choose from four Siri voices.
Apple Update iOS 14.7 is currently available as a public beta. But be careful: Betas are often buggy and should only be downloaded on a tester device, not your primary phone. We recommend waiting until the final release before downloading. We expect to see a general release in late June or early July.
Several people have reported an issue with their iPhone battery draining quickly since updating to iOS 14.6. Apple has yet to address the issue, but it seems possible it could be fixed in iOS 14.7. In iOS 14.7, you can set a timer for your HomePod through the Home app without having to ask Siri, as 9to5Mac found in the developer beta code. The new option is located below HomePod alarms.
iOS 14.7 will be compatible with all the same devices as iOS 14. Generally, these include the iPhone 6S up through the iPhone 12, along with the iPhone SE and the seventh-gen iPod Touch. Enrolling also grants you early access to macOS 12, watchOS 8, and app development tools.
