Apple documentation references upcoming iOS 14.2 release

The news: Following yesterday’s release of iOS 14, Apple pushed out a new Xcode beta that directly references iOS 14.2, tvOS 14.2 and watchOS 7.1.

  • The upcoming software releases were mentioned in the release notes for Xcode 12.2 beta
  • Apple has teased a number of features coming to an iOS 14 update coming later this year, like camera support for scanning App Clips

Our take: It’s a bit odd that Apple is publicly referencing iOS 14.2 with no mention anywhere of iOS 14.1. It’s hard to decipher what’s up here, but perhaps they’re just getting a head-start on development for that update.
