You can finally test the new features of iOS 14 on your iPhone July 15, 2020 – Posted in: Smartphone news
A few days ago, Apple introduced the new features in iOS 14 during an online version of its WWDC conference. This new version of the mobile operating system will not be available for a few weeks. However, developers can currently test iOS 14 via the preview to adapt their applications to the changes made.
As of today, you can also install iOS 14’s public beta on a compatible iPhone. This has just been released and allows the public to test the new features of iOS 14. Reminder: This version contains important updates to the user interface. As explained in a previous article, iOS 14 allows you to place your widgets anywhere on the home screen. There is also a new location called “App Library” where all apps are located and which organizes them in folders or in alphabetical order. And Siri has a more discreet interface that doesn’t take up the entire screen when it comes to voice requests.
This is not the final version yet
However, if the iOS 14 public beta allows access to new features before its official release, it is important to remember that it is currently a potentially unstable version. However, by releasing this public beta, Apple can collect more user feedback, find and fix bugs before it’s officially released.
It is therefore recommended not to install this beta on your main device, on which you want to work, for example due to possible errors. However, if you have two smartphones, you can use one of them to test these new features provided by iOS 14. If you are a customer, click on the “Source” at the end of this article.
In addition to the public beta of iOS 14, Apple also publishes a public beta of iPadOS 14. The principle is the same: With this beta, the company can test the innovations that will later be available on compatible iPads. Among other things, there is support for handwriting with the pen in the text fields, new designs for Apple applications such as photos, files and notes as well as new functions for augmented reality applications.
