    What are we thinking for the official release date for iOS 14.5? Tuesday with the press release or later in the week or following week?

    Tuesday most definitely. It's probably already ready, and they are just waiting for the event.

    I agree with this! I'm planning on having all my devices fully charged and ready so that I can install as soon as it's released.

    I’m already on the latest beta, but my #1 annoyance (actually it’s my only annoyance) with the Apple Watch is when I take it off the charger, its charge is 100 %, I leave the house, and I then get a notification that an update is available. I wish Apple would allow AW updates without being on the charger.

    I get it, but I believe that the issue is that there is no way for an end-user to recover from a failed update (because the watch shut down in the middle), unlike iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, because there is no port to allow wired connection recovery. So Apple is being extra-careful to avoid this.

    Maybe instead they will develop a more modular update process that does the update is smaller chunks while the device is off-battery? Someday maybe.

    Sure, but's still a 'beta' and not everyone will even know it exists.

    I’m thinking Tuesday... it’s got to be this week, because people will need it when AirTags arrive on The 30th.

    I just read on 9 to 5 Mac that "Apple has confirmed that iOS 14.5 will be released to the public this week. Furthermore, a report from the New York Times confirms that iOS 14.5 is coming today, Monday, April 26. The update will likely be released around 10 a.m. PT.".

    I know it’s a big update with a lot of features but it’s funny to watch people treat this like a major update like 14.0 or 15.0. I know I’m excited to try out the new facemask with your watch

    Curious choice of wording... "Apple will ship..." I would have thought release would be a better choice!
