What’s new in iOS 14 Beta 2? New calendar icons, file widgets, and more

Two weeks after WWDC, Apple today released iOS 14 Beta 2 for developers. The update repeats and modifies many of the new features introduced in iOS 14, and here’s something new we’ve found so far.

IOS 14 Beta 2 features the build number of 18A5319i. Developers will be able to update from beta 1 via the Settings app. Simply open the Settings app, select General, then choose Software Update. If you don’t see iOS 14 Beta 2 right away, check out why the update isn’t launching yet.

Apple has said that iOS 14 will be available sometime in July for public beta testers, but so far, the version has not been released. We’ll be sure to update you whenever this changes.
