Update 2: Apple has now released RC 2 to registered developers.

Apple has seeded the RC builds of its pre-release software to developers just now, including iOS 14.4, iPadOS 14.4, watchOS 7.3 and tvOS 14.4. What this means is, the aforementioned software is almost ready for prime time release and we should see the full and final build of the software seeded to everyone around the world within the next couple of weeks.

Unfortunately, macOS 11.2 Big Sur is still in beta and we are expect the RC build to be available soon rather than later.

If you already have one of the previous betas installed on your devices then you can get the Release Candidate updates right now. Just follow the steps below and you will be up to speed.
