Apple released the third iOS 14.5 beta to developers Tuesday afternoon, and although the release didn’t go as smoothly as normal, all ended up well. This latest beta sees the return of the default music player requests via Siri that was available in the initial iOS 14.5 beta release, but was unavailable in beta 2.
The release also brings about a new Find My Splash Screen, the Item tab in the Find My app to track third-party accessories and Apple’s upcoming AirTags, Item Safety Alerts functionality, and more. Watch our iOS 14.5 beta 3 changes and features video walkthrough for the details, and be sure to subscribe to 9to5mac on YouTube for more videos.
What’s new in iOS 14.5 beta 3?
Default music player requests via Siri returns
Apple has yet to fully flesh out a default music player option like it has with setting a default mail client or default browser app in iOS 14, but at least some of the framework exists already. Just like in the initial beta release, beta 3 allows users to select a default music player after requesting music playback via Siri. However, the function and wording is a bit different in this latest beta.
