Apple released the fifth iOS 14.7 betas to developers and public testers today, Thursday, July 8. The update appears to be minor, adding new splash screens when opening Reminders and Podcasts for the first time.
Apple actually released this update to developers and public beta testers at the same time today — the company seeded the update at 1 p.m. PDT, which is usual for public beta updates, but a bit unusual for developers updates. Apple typically seeds developers new updates at 10 a.m. PDT, and follows up with the public beta three to 24 hours later.
iOS & iPadOS 14.7 Beta 5 Release Notes
- To develop apps for iOS & iPadOS 14.7 beta 5, build your apps against the iOS 14.5 SDK or later. The SDK comes bundled with Xcode 12.5.1, available from the Mac App Store. For information on the compatibility requirements for Xcode 12.5.1, see Xcode 12.5.1 Release Notes.
SKAdNetwork: Known Issues
- Devices with the SKAdNetwork developer profile installed running iOS & iPadOS 14.7 beta 3 and later can send postbacks through a manually-configured HTTP proxy. By using the proxy, you can monitor the traffic between your device and the network, including SKAdNetwork postbacks, see Testing Ad Attributions with a Downloaded Profile. (77851124)
You'll need an Apple developer account to update your iPhone. You can get the restore image from your dev portal, then install it with iTunes or Finder. Otherwise, install the configuration profile, then update by going to Settings –> General –> Software Update. Finally, you can simply wait for it to auto-install if you have a dev profile and "Automatic Updates" is enabled.
To update your iPhone to iOS 14.7 public beta 5, sign up through Apple's beta site, download and install the configuration profile, then update over the air. If you already have the profile, go to Settings –> General –> Software Update, then tap "iOS 14.6" under "Also Available" to begin the installation of the latest beta build, or you can wait until it installs automatically if "Automatic Updates" is enabled.
