Apple seeds iOS 14.5 beta 3 and iPadOS 14.5 beta 3 to developers

It came much later in the day than usual, but Apple rolled out the latest iOS and iPadOS developer betas on Tuesday, exactly two weeks after the last betas were released. We’re still waiting to find out what exactly iOS 14.5 beta 3 brings to the table, but we know that iOS 14.5 is primed to be one of the bigger releases of this cycle.

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 face masks, AirPlay 2 support for Apple Fitness+, support for the PlayStation’s DualSense controller as well as the Xbox Series X controller, a crowdsourcing feature in the Maps app, a bunch of new emoji characters, and worldwide support for 5G in Dual SIM mode on iPhone 12.
