Technology iOS 14.2 beta 2 now available with dozens of new emoji characters
macOS Big Sur refreshes the design and ultimately enhances the Mac
The Mac is getting a big upgrade with Big Sur (macOS 11) this fall. It's arguably the biggest change since the original macOS and lays the groundwork for Apple Silicon, an Apple-made chip that will replace Intel in Macs. © APPLE You can join the prerelease fun with the macOS Big Sur Public Beta, starting today, but if you dive into the public beta, know that slowdowns and bugs are common and expected. We highly recommend you first create a backup. So what's new with Big Sur? The big story is all about design. To some degree, it's classic Mac, infused with iOS.
- Apple rolled out iOS 14.2 beta 2 and iPadOS 14.2 beta 2 for developers on Tuesday.
- Now that public beta versions are rolling out as well, everyone with an iOS or iPadOS device can try the new software and all of the features that Apple is adding in the next update.
- iOS 14 is a massive update packed with hundreds of new features that you can read about — some highlights include home screen widgets, new Compact UI features, an App Library with all of your installed apps, and the redesigned Messages app.
Apple started pushing out beta releases for iOS 14.2 almost immediately after iOS 14 rolled out to the public, but the latest update is by far the most exciting to date. At long last, Apple has brought new emoji characters that are part of the Unicode Consortium’s Emoji 13.0 to iOS and iPadOS, according to.

“Two emojis not seen from Apple until today include Smiling Face with Tear and Disguised Face,” Emojipedia explains in a new blog post. “This is also the first time Apple’s gender variations for people wearing a Tuxedo or Veil have been seen. Prior releases assigned a man to wear the tuxedo and a woman to wear a veil, but these have been reclassified by Unicode as gender neutral emojis in Emoji 13.0, paving the way for consistent options for women or men to wear either, in addition to the default person design.”
Apple just fixed something in iOS 14 that was driving me crazy
iOS 14 beta 5 fixes one of the tiny iOS 14 changes that aren’t important enough to be addressed during an iOS presentation. But it’s a feature that a certain group of people will observe as soon as they upgrade to iOS 14. The iconic time picker scrolling wheel you’re currently using to set up new alarms is gone in iOS 14, as Apple replaced it with a keypad that lets you enter the time manually. iOS 14 beta 5 fixes that “issue” by adding a smaller scrolling wheel to the time field.
Here are some of the emojis you can look forward to whenever this update gets pushed out to everyone:

Apple just released the first iOS 14.2 public beta .
Apple rolled out the first public beta for iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 on Monday. Now that public betas are rolling out as well, everyone with an iOS or iPadOS device can try the new software and all of the features that Apple is adding in the next update. iOS 14 is a massive update packed with hundreds of new features that you can read about right here — some highlights include home screen widgets, new Compact UI features, an App Library with all of your installed apps, and the redesigned Messages app. Last week, Apple threw us for a loop by releasing the first developer beta of iOS 14.2 just days after iOS 14 had been distributed to the public.
