WWDC 2021 took place last week, giving us an early look at everything iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 will bring to the table when they launch this fall alongside the iPhone 13 models. But those updates are months away, and in the meantime, Apple will be pushing out new versions of its mobile operating systems with new features and important bug fixes. iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 are the latest public releases, but now iOS 14.7 is just around the corner.

We don’t know much about iOS 14.7 yet, but it appears to be significantly less impactful than iOS 14.5 or iOS 14.6. We know that the update will allow HomePod users to set timers in the Home app on their iPhone or iPad, but that’s about it for now.

iOS 14.7 beta 3 is now available for developers, as is iPadOS 14.7 beta 3. If you are wondering whether or not your device is compatible with iOS 14 or iPadOS 14, we put together a long list below containing every supported device. If your device is on the list, you’re good to go:

  • iPhone 12 Pro
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max

As you know by now, installing a new iOS or iPadOS beta on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch couldn’t be easier. Navigate to Settings > General > Software Update and then tap “Download and Install” at the bottom of the page. If you want, you can also install an update through iTunes by connecting your iOS device to your computer. Whichever method you choose, just make sure to back up your devices before installing the update. You can never be too careful!
