This week the iOS and iPadOS betas are back on the users’ agenda after the launch of the seventh beta. Although everyone is waiting for the final versions of all the versions after many months of waiting, it still seems that they are not ready. These new betas do not have notable news but they are undoubtedly preparing the ground for the final launch that we hope is imminent. We tell you all the details below.
What’s new in the seventh beta of iOS 14.5
These new betas arrive a week after the release of the sixth betas so we are seeing how it is accelerating. Without a doubt, this is one of the most anticipated updates since it has interesting news to take into account for the productivity and comfort of users. Among these novelties is, for example, the possibility of unlocking the device through Face ID while wearing a mask thanks to the Apple Watch. This will certainly make it much easier for users to use the devices in the middle of the street. In addition, different redesigns and a new function related to battery management and its constant and intelligent calibration are also highlighted.
Broadly speaking, these are the news and it is what is being polished in this series of betas. And by this we mean that in this seventh beta there is no visual novelty that can be particularly highlighted. Basically they are dedicating themselves to structuring all these news a bit so that when the final version is released it is totally stable and does not suffer any major bug that could harm users.
MacOS 11.3 beta 7, tvOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.3 also available
Along with these new betas for iOS and iPadOS, the corresponding betas 7 of macOS 11.3, tvOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.3 have also been released. In these versions it has not been possible to appreciate any relevant news. And of these, the most anticipated update is undoubtedly that of watchOS, which includes support for unlocking with face shields. This is something that is in line with everything we have previously discussed.
When will the final versions arrive?
The big question that all users ask is when the final versions of these operating systems will arrive. A priori we can come to say that we are quite close to its final launch since it is in a fairly advanced version. This will soon lead to the Release Candidate (RC) version that is categorized as the old Golden Master. After this version, all betas will be finished, the final version will reach all users for its correct installation.
