- Apple rolled out iOS 14 beta 8 and iPadOS 14 beta 8 for developers on Wednesday.
- Now that public betas are also in use, anyone with an iOS or iPadOS device can try the new software and all the features that Apple will add this fall.
- iOS 14 is a massive update packed with hundreds of new features that you can read about right here – some highlights include home screen modules, new compact user interface features, an app library with all your installed apps and the redesigned Messages app.
After announcing a new digital event for September 15, Apple’s busy week continues with the launch of the eighth beta version of iOS 1
Apple is not expected to announce the new iPhone 12 until October, which means that we will probably have to wait at least another month before iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are launched to the public. If so, there may be at least one or two betas before everyone can get the new software.
More information about the latest beta versions of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 will soon be published on Apple’s website. A quick glance makes it look like bug fixes and improvements are the focus of this beta.
