Apple Releases iOS 14.7 Beta 2 for iPhone

Apple seeded the second beta for iOS 14.7 today, Wednesday, June 2. The update (build number 18G5033e) comes two weeks after Apple released the first 14.7 beta, and nine days after the company released iOS 14.6 to the general public.

Apple released this update at 10 a.m. PDT, the company's standard release time for developer beta updates. At this time, only the developer version of this software is available. If you're a public beta tester for iOS, you'll need to wait for Apple to release iOS 14.7 public beta 2. We expect to see that at 1 p.m. PDT today, or 10 a.m. PDT tomorrow.
