Apple has released the first Release Candidate betas, with developers now able to try the fourth builds of iOS 14.6, iPadOS 14.6, tvOS 14.6, and watchOS 7.5.
The newest builds can be downloaded via the Apple Developer Center for those enrolled in the test program, or via an over-the-air update on devices running the beta software. Public betas typically arrive within a few days of the developer versions, via the Apple Beta Software Program website.
Round four follows after the release of round 3, which occurred on May 10. Round 2 landed on April 30, while the initial betas for this generation were made available on April 22.
Release notes state podcast subscriptions will be included in this release. Apple Card Family will also be included in the Release Candidate for pre-release testing.
AppleInsider, and Apple itself, strongly recommend users don't install the betas on to "mission-critical" or primary devices, as there is the remote possibility of data loss or other issues. Instead, testers should install betas onto secondary or non-essential devices, and to make sure there are sufficient backups of important data before updating.
