Developers can download the first beta of iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5. In addition, macOS Big Sur 11.3, watchOS 7.4 and tvOS 14.5 beta 1 is also available. For public testers, there is no beta of iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5, macOS Big Sur 11.3, watchOS 7.4, or tvOS 14.5 yet available.

The new software updates mainly add fixes for bugs and problems. For the time being, few new functions and options have been discovered, but the required anti-tracking for apps is being added. The official version is expected in March.
