If you are ready to try out fresh features and improvements in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, you can go try out beta versions of the software right now. Not to worry, in this tutorial, we break down the process for you in an uncomplicated manner.
With iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, Apple is launching various new features and improvements, including Home screen widgets and an App Library, updates for existing applications, Siri improvements, and other tweaks that enhance the iOS and iPadOS interface.
As you already know, beta is pre-released software, therefore installing the software on a secondary device is advised. However, the stability of beta software is not guaranteed, since it mostly contains bugs and problems that are yet to be fixed, which is why installing it on a device you use regularly is not wise.
