Apple has released the second developer betas of iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 today. The company is also rolling out watchOS 7.6 developer beta 2, as well as tv OS 14.7 developer beta 2.

Today’s new release of the iOS 14.7 beta 2 is available to developers via an over-the-air update in the Settings app. As usual, if the update does not immediately appear for download, keep checking, as it sometimes takes a few minutes to roll out to all registered developers. The build number for today’s release is 18G5033e.

As we detailed last month, iOS 14.7 brings a new timer management feature for HomePod users:

Apple today introduced the first beta of iOS 14.7 to developers, and while this update doesn’t seem to bring any significant changes, it does bring a new feature for HomePod users.
