Apple Releases iOS 14.2 Developer Beta 2 for iPhone

Apple just released iOS 14.2 developer beta 2 (build number 18B5061e) for iPhone today, Tuesday, Sept. 29. This update comes five days after Apple released iOS 14.0.1, eight days after 14.2 public beta 1, and 12 days after 14.2 dev beta 1.

Apple released this update to developers at 10 a.m. PDT, the company’s standard release time for major software updates. If you’re not a developer, however, you won’t see this update hit your iPhone. Instead, you’ll need to wait for Apple to release 14.2 public beta 2, which we expect to see either today at 1 p.m. PDT, or Monday at 10 a.m. PDT.

iOS 14.2 dev beta 2 release notes coming soon.

How to Install the Most Recent Beta on Your iPhone

To update your iPhone to iOS 14.2 dev beta 2, you’ll need to be a registered developer. You can use the restore image for your iPhone available in the Developer portal (install with iTunes or Finder) or install the configuration profile, then update over the air. If you already have the profile installed on your iPhone, head over to Settings –> General –> Software Update to start installing the latest beta build, or you can wait until it installs automatically if “Automatic Updates” is enabled.
