Two weeks after WWDC, Apple today has released iOS 14 beta 2 to developers. The update iterates and refines many of the new features introduced in iOS 14, and here’s everything new that we’ve found so far.

iOS 14 beta 2 features the build number of 18A5319i. Developers can update from beta 1 via the Settings app. Simply open the Settings app, choose General, then choose Software Update. If you don’t see iOS 14 beta 2 immediately, keep checking as the update is still rolling out.

Apple has said that iOS 14 will be available to public beta testers sometime in July, but as of right now, that version has not been released. We’ll be sure to update you whenever that changes.
