News: Apple Releases iOS 14.3 Developer Beta 3 for iPhone

Apple Releases iOS 14.3 Developer Beta 3 for iPhone

Apple released iOS 14.3 developer beta 3 today, Wednesday, Dec. 2. The update comes 15 days after Apple released iOS 14.3 beta 2 for developers and public beta testers, which introduced a change that bypasses the Shortcuts app when using a custom icon on the home screen.

Apple released this update at 10 a.m. PDT, the company's standard release time for major software updates. Unlike 14.3 beta 2, however, this update isn't for both developers and public beta testers, just developers. If you're a public beta tester, you'll need to wait for Apple to release iOS 14.3 public beta 3, which we expect to see at 1 p.m. PDT today, or 10 a.m. PDT tomorrow.

How to Download & Install the Latest iOS 14.3 Beta

To update your iPhone to iOS 14.3 dev beta 3, you'll need to be a registered developer. You can use the restore image for your iPhone available in the Developer portal (install with iTunes or Finder) or install the configuration profile, then update over the air. If you already have the profile installed on your iPhone, head over to Settings –> General –> Software Update to start installing the latest beta build, or you can wait until it installs automatically if "Automatic Updates" is enabled.
