Apple has today released the new iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 developer preview (public beta Beta3). This update is coming just a week after the release of iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 Beta 2 update. These updates can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center. Also, users can get the update wirelessly after installing the appropriate configuration file on the iPhone or iPad.
iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 boasts very few changes, mainly performance optimization and bug fixes. For AirTag, the new beta version adds a new feature that allows you to enter an email address as a contact method in Lost Mode instead of a phone number. In iOS 14.5, there is no option to use email, and Apple only allows the use of phone numbers.
This update also laid the foundation for the Apple Card Family, a feature that Apple launched at the April event. Apple Card Family allows spouses to share an Apple Card account, and each person acts as a co-owner to establish credit. Apple Card Family also allows parents to share an Apple Card with their children for shopping and has spending limits and parental control functions. All household consumption is tracked through a monthly bill. In addition, an Apple Card account can have up to five people over the age of 13.
Today, Apple also released watchOS 7.5, tvOS 14.6, and macOS Big Sur developer preview Beta 3. These updates also do not have any major changes. They all come with minor performance improvements
