Apple has moved on to its fourth round of the current beta cycle with new developer betas of iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, tvOS 14.5, and watchOS 7.4 now available for testing.
The releases of iOS and iPadOS have been unusual in this cycle, as Apple pulled both the first and third developer betas before reissuing them. No reasons have been offered as to why this occurred.
The third public betas for iOS and iPadOS were made available on March 3, and the third watchOS public beta was issued on March 5.
The Apple Watch gains the ability to assist with Face ID unlocking of an iPhone if the user’s wearing a mask. Support for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X game controllers, Apple Fitness+ AirPlay 2 casting support, over 200 new emoji, and refinements to Apple Music have also been spotted.
