Just over 24 hours after Apple confirmed that iOS 14.5 would be available to the general public next week, the first beta for iOS 14.6 has begun rolling out to developers. We’ll have to wait until we install the update to see what all has changed, but we don’t expect iOS 14.6 to be nearly as significant an update as iOS 14.5. That said, there will undoubtedly be some interesting new features, including the following, which Apple explained on its developer site:

“You can now directly update your iOS or iPadOS device 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 your device from the beta program.”

Apple’s iOS 14.6 beta 1 is now available, alongside the corresponding iPad software update for developers, iPadOS 14.6 beta 1. If you’re wondering whether or not your device is compatible with iOS 14 or iPadOS 14, we put together a full list below that contains every compatible device.
