We thought this might finally be the week that the iOS 14.5 release candidate made its way out to developers and public beta testers, but instead, we are getting the seventh iOS 14.5 beta on Wednesday. This beta comes just one week after the last, and undoubtedly includes a number of bug fixes and improvements.

Previous betas have revealed that iOS 14.5 will include an “Unlock with Apple Watch” feature that allows Apple Watch owners to unlock their iPhones while wearing a face mask, AirPlay 2 support for Apple Fitness+, support for the PS5’s DualSense controller as well as the Xbox Series X controller, a crowdsourcing feature in Apple’s Maps app, a ton of new emoji characters, and worldwide support for 5G in Dual SIM mode on iPhone 12.
