Apple announced iOS 14, iPadOS 14, TVOS 14 and WatchOS 7 on Monday and broke the news that the Mac lineup will eventually ditch Intel processors, switching to Apple’s Arm silicon, similar to the kind of chip that powers your iPhone (iPads (Siri interface and a revamped Messages app with better group conversation features and Picture in Picture video among other new developments. 

Getting the beta up and running on your iPhone or iPad isn’t a straightforward process right now, requiring a paid developer account to even access it. Here’s everything you need to know about installing iOS 14 or 카지노사이트추천 iPadOS 14.

First take: iOS 14 and all its new features


Reminder: This is an early preview for developers

There’s a reason Apple limits the first couple of preview releases to developers every year — it’s buggy. Some apps won’t work, battery life is all but guaranteed to take a hit and there will undoubtedly be random restarts and crashes. It’s all part of the process of getting an operating system ready. 

So don’t install iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 on your main phone or tablet. Instead, use a spare device if you have one; otherwise wait until, at a minimum, the first public beta. My advice? Wait even longer. The closer we get to the official release, the more reliable the experience will be. By the fourth for fifth public beta version things are usually mostly stable.

With that said, if you like living on the edge and are willing to deal with the issues, here’s how you can install iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 right now.
