We’re currently reaching the later stages of the iOS 14 fine tuning and near the public release, which is scheduled for this fall (September or October).
iOS 14 Beta 7 doesn’t bring too many noticeable changes because it focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements of the new features that have been already introduced in the previous test versions.
However, we could still identify some minor changes that include a new Dark Mode option for the stock rainbow wallpapers, as well as modified App Library categories.

iOS 14 Beta 7 Changelog
The following is an open changelog with the visible differences that we could spot after updating from iOS 14 Beta 6 and Beta 7. In case we missed something out, feel free to comment this article and contribute to this list:
– Dark Mode Rainbow Wallpapers:
The stock iOS 14 rainbow stripe wallpapers have received a Dark Mode version. However, you can display the dark theme version, only if Dark Mode is enabled system-wide.
How To: To display a rainbow stripe wallpaper you have to browse for Settings -> Wallpaper -> Choose a New Wallpaper -> Stills. Scroll for the desired rainbow wallpaper color.
– New App Library Categories:
The App Library provides an one-page layout for all the apps available on your iPhone. The apps are grouped in default categories. Some of these have been changed in Beta 7. The two default ones: Suggestions and Recently Added are unchanged though.
Other categories now available are: Social, Utilities, Productivity & Finance (former Productivity), Information & Reading (was Reference & Reading), Creativity, Other, Health & Fitness, Shopping & Food, Entertainment, Travel (new addition), Games, Arcade (new), and Education.
