If you have a beta profile loaded on your iPhone or iPad for beta checking. You will not get the notification on your phone if this happens. If that’s the case, you should uninstall the beta profile and install the new stable iOS 14.6 upgrade instead. However, once you uninstall the beta profile, you will not get beta updates.

How to Uninstall a Beta Profile from an iPhone or iPad

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings.
