Some people who updated to the second iOS 14.7 developer beta got an unfortunate surprise.
As reported by 9to5Mac some users who have updated to the iOS 14.7 beta 2 for developers have gotten a "SIM Failure" which rendered their phones quite useless. It seems to be limited to those using eSIM but, if it happens, you'll be unable to make or receive calls or use cellular at all.

If you haven't updated to the second iOS 14.7 developer beta yet now might be a good time to hold off until the issue is resolved. Of course, the best thing when working with a developer beta is to only install it on something other than your main device.
If you do have it installed and are experiencing the error, there unfortunately isn't a workaround right now.

Apple did that to teach people not to use a main phone for betas :).
Absolutely agree, it is beta software people 😎😎
