iOS 14.6 produces it simpler for beta clients to install RC build and skip other accessible beta updates
Apple today released the first beta of iOS 14.6 to engineers despite the fact that it hasn’t yet released iOS 14.5 to the public. And keeping in mind that we actually don’t know precisely what’s going on in this update, the iOS 14.6 release notes affirm that the organization has rolled out certain improvements to make it simpler to leave the beta program after the arrival of an official build.
In the iOS 14.6 beta 1 release notes shared on the Apple Developer website, the organization specifies that clients running beta versions of the operating system would now be able to upgrade their iPhone or iPad to a RC build without removing the beta profile. With the RC build installed, the client can decide to stay in the beta program to get new updates or exit the program and get just official updates.
Software update — New Features in iOS and iPadOS 14.6 Beta. You can now directly update your iOS or iPadOS gadget to the most recent Release Candidate without removing the beta profile. In the wake of updating to the Release Candidate, you can decide to update to the next accessible beta or uninstall the profile to remove your gadget from the beta program.
Truth be told, this feature appears to as of now be working with the iOS 14.5 RC — which was released to developers earlier this week. In the event that you have installed the most recent version of iOS 14.5 on your gadget with the beta profile enabled, the iOS 14.6 update will show up in the Settings application as a substitute update.
9to5Mac initially uncovered this feature a month ago dependent on internal code from iOS 14.5, which additionally hints at more changes going to the iOS update system.
