iOS 14.3 Beta 2 Download. iOS beta testing, especially when it comes to so-called functional updates, is a very responsible and measured process. Therefore, for the entire first half of the pre-test program, Apple releases new builds no more than once every two weeks. During this time, developers participating in testing have time to check the update for bugs and critical vulnerabilities. If everything is in order, the current build is opened for ordinary testers. iOS 14.3 beta 2 in this sense is a very indicative update, because its testing is going on as if according to a methodology.
Today, November 15, Apple released the second beta of iOS 14.3 and iPadOS 14.3 to developers. The updated assembly came out exactly two weeks after the previous release. As expected, initially only developers who have an active account, or users who know where to download the current beta developer profile and, most importantly, have an idea of how to roll back from the test version of the operating system to the stable one, can install the update. …
What’s new in iOS 14.3 beta
iOS 14.3 is a very atypical update, if only because its testing began even earlier than iOS 14.1, although logically and numerically it should have been exactly the opposite. But for some reason in Cupertino decided that first of all it is necessary to pay attention to the second functional update, and not the first. Perhaps this is due to the significance of the planned innovations, but perhaps everything is exactly the opposite, and in iOS 14.1 the changes should be much more significant and should not have been shone ahead of time.
One way or another, there are also enough innovations in iOS 14.3:
- Built-in Shazam in Control Center;
- Updated Control Center;
- Compact interface of AirDrop technology;
- Lupa received support for face recognition;
- Modified icon of the “Clock” application.
Shazam’s integration with iOS has been asking for a long time. But somehow Apple has been dragging it out for over a year. But now, in order to recognize music, an iOS 14 user does not even need to install the service application from the App Store. Just swipe from the top of the screen and click on the Shazam icon. It is especially cool that thanks to the support of the picture-in-picture function. You can recognize tracks that are played on the same device on which the service is running. Thus, for example, it is convenient to capture the names of songs played on the radio or as part of the audio track in YouTube videos.
How to install the iOS 14.3 beta 2
Installing iOS 14.3 beta 2 for developers is as easy as shelling pears:
- Follow this link and download the iOS 14 beta profile;
- Open “Settings” – “General” – “Profiles”;
- Confirm the installation of the downloaded beta profile;
- Go to Software Update and download iOS 14.3 beta 2.
But, as always in such cases, I strongly recommend that you take your time installing test versions. While iOS 14 is pretty stable, there is no guarantee that iOS 14.3, while still in early beta testing. Will be able to do the same. Therefore, just in case – do not sacrifice the main device. But if you are impatient to try out a fresh update, use the auxiliary one, of course. If such is available.
