It’s a bit surprising that Apple hasn’t posted beta testers as the iOS 14.5 release candidate. Rumor has it that the next major iPhone update will be out soon, so it makes sense that we would see a “final” version of that software on our test devices instead of another beta. But that’s just not the case here as Apple decided to release a seventh 14.5 beta.
Apple today, April 7, sent public testers the seventh beta for iOS 14.5. This beta comes three hours after 14.5 dev beta 7 and a week after Apple released 14.5 beta 6 for developers and public testers.
Since we’ve been watching beta 7 for a few hours at this point, we know what it̵
That could indicate that the 14.5 tests are really finishing up and an RC is finally on the horizon.
