After Monday’s release of iOS 14.5 to the public, Apple continues with beta testing of iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6. The company is now launching the second beta of these updates to developers, coming just over a week after beta 1 was released to developers and public beta users.
Update: iOS 14.6 beta 2 is now also rolling out to public beta users.
Today’s new release of iOS 14.6 beta 2 is available to developers via an air update in the Settings app. As usual, if the update does not appear immediately for download, you will need to keep checking, as it sometimes takes a few minutes to roll out to all registered developers.

Apple is also launching the second beta version of tvOS 14.6 and HomePod Software 14.6 for Apple TV and HomePod. Apple has also released the second beta version of watchOS 7.5 to developers.
So far, iOS 14.6 has not had many changes. In fact, the only change we’ve noticed so far is that iOS 14.6 makes it easier for beta users to install RC build and skip other available beta updates.
You can now update your iOS or iPadOS device directly to the latest release candidate without removing the beta profile. After updating to the release candidate, you can choose to update to the next available beta or uninstall the profile to remove the device from the beta program.
It’s also likely that iOS 14.6 will include new features in the Apple Podcasts app for the upcoming Apple Podcasts subscription platform, which will launch sometime in May.
