Apple released the second public beta for iOS 14.4 today, Wednesday, January 13. This update doesn’t seem to add any new user-facing features or changes, but adds minor fixes under the hood. That said, Apple has not specified what changes this update has made in the 14.4 beta 2 release notes.
Apple released the first iOS 14.4 beta on December 16 and the public beta the following day. With the first beta, Apple added additional App Clip experiences, new modem firmware, a black pixel patch in HDR videos, and iOS’s highly anticipated privacy-related feature for apps to ask for permission to track you on your iPhone.
