Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “What's new in iOS 14.6 beta 3? Bug fixes, 'Find My' Lost Mode update, more [Video] - 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Yesterday Apple released iOS 14.6 beta 3 to developers and public beta testers, and although there aren’t a ton of new features, there are several interesting points of note surrounding this release. Watch our hands-on video walkthrough for a rundown of what’s new in iOS 14.6 beta 3, and be sure to subscribe to 9to5mac on YouTube for more hands-on videos.

The third iOS 14.6 developer beta features build number 18F5065a and Apple has provided release notes specifically pertaining to beta 3. In the release details, Apple notes that it has fixed an issue relating to startup where an iPhone may experience reduced performance.

The release notes also go on to include general iOS 14.6 information, including the new feature for staying on the beta train after updating to an iOS release candidate. As I outlined in our in-depth iOS 14.5 overview video, users that have updated to an iOS release candidate will have the ability to move on to the next beta release without having to reinstall a beta profile. This new feature is found at the bottom of Settings → General → Software Update, under a heading entitled “Also Available”.

iOS 14.5 hasn’t been officially available all that long, but already Apple has stopped signing the release, making it impossible to upgrade or downgrade to iOS 14.5. The reason behind Apple’s quick action has to do with what happened back on May 3rd, when iOS 14.5.1 was released. The iOS 14.5.1 update was a critical security release that contained fixes for exploits that could result in arbitrary code execution. In other words, it’s imperative that users update to iOS 14.5.1 or later in order to keep their devices safe, and Apple’s decision to stop signing anything below iOS 14.5.1 will only hasten the move.

The App Store receives a new splash screen related to App Privacy Details. iOS 14’s privacy enhancements include the controversial App Tracking controls that I discussed in our iOS 14.5 video walkthrough. The update also includes App Privacy cards that outline how apps manage and track your date, how data is linked to you, etc. These cards are found at the bottom of every app on the App Store that has been updated since Apple mandated their inclusion.
