TVOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.4 beta 2 released

Apple has released test updates for Apple TV and Apple Watch. They are available to application developers.

The second beta version of tvOS 14.5 can be downloaded to the fourth and fifth generation Apple TVs through the developer profile using Xcode. This update adds support for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X controllers for Apple’s App Store and Apple Arcade games. These controllers are already supported in iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, so the implementation of such an innovation was quite logical.

Downloading and installing the second beta version of watchOS 7.4 is done from the Apple Developer Center via an iPhone paired with an Apple smartwatch. If you have the correct developer profile, the update will be available in the iPhone settings. Installation requires the watch to be at least 50% charged and connected to the charging adapter, and the iPhone must be nearby within range of a local wireless connection.

WatchOS 7.4 introduces the Unlock with Apple Watch feature, which allows you to use your watch to unlock your iPhone if Face ID fails (for example, due to a mask on your face). You won’t be able to confirm purchases via Apple Pay or the App Store using the Apple Watch, you still need to authenticate using Face ID or your account password.

Apple will have time to release several more test updates to tvOS 14.5 and watchOS 7.4 in the coming weeks, with release builds due out in the spring.
