Apple has just officially released the iOS 14 Beta 8 Version last week with great changes to iOS and iPad OS devices and their home screens, along with several other changes. After a little over 7 days, Apple is already hard at work on incremental updates with the release of the iOS 14.2 Public Beta.
According to the reports, the Beta is now open to everyone with an Apple ID and a compatible Apple device either iPhone or iPad. The iOS 14.2 brings a new Music Recognition function right in the Control Center, which integrates Shazam’s (newly acquired by Apple) music recognition abilities. It will let you recognize music that’s ambiently playing and will also be able to recognize music playing in apps.
There’s also a newly updated “Now Playing” widget for the control center that will display recently played music that you might want to play when there’s no music playing. A new interface for AirPlay will make it easier to connect to multiple AirPlay 2 devices. Moreover, a new “People detection” feature that uses the camera to estimate how far a person is from you if they are standing in front of you – a much-needed tool for today’s society, conscious about social distancing.
