iOS 14.6 RC now available with support for Apple Podcasts subscriptions

May 17th, 2021 at 1:22 PM
iOS 14.6 RC

It hasn’t even been a month since iOS 14.5 launched, bringing App Tracking Transparency, the ability to unlock an iPhone with an Apple Watch, AirTag support, and more to Apple’s mobile devices, but the update train keeps chugging along. Just hours after Apple revealed that lossless audio, spatial audio, and Dolby Atmos support would be coming to iOS 14.6 in June, the company rolled out the release candidate of iOS 14.6 to developers.

This update isn’t quite as substantial as iOS 14.5, but there are still plenty of reasons to update as soon as it is available to the general public. In addition to bringing lossless streaming to Apple Music, iOS 14.6 also adds support for Apple Podcasts subscriptions, introduces Apple Card Family, and brings new features to AirTag. There are also a number of bug fixes and improvements, including a fix for Unlock with Apple Watch.
