Apple made its next iOS release public to iPhone users for public testing, but there is no guarantee if iOS14 F’s up your device.
We’ve all done this before but at what cost. One time I tried a public beta test release and my iPhone was F’d up for days. But, the good news is you can also. Back in June Apple announced the software update for all iOS devices with iOS14. The update brings a new feature to the iPhone and iPad but old to Android devices. One of the first dramatic changes to Apple’s iOS in years. The update provides a new home screen look that creates widgets for users without digging into the device.
“App Library,” as they call it, will automatically organize your apps. It will do so by creating a folder based on suggestions from a history of your activity on your device.
Here’s how you can do it if you decided to;
- Visit Apple’s Beta Program website on the device you want to install iOS 14. Be sure to use Safari instead of a 3rd-party browser.
- Sign in with your Apple ID account
- Backup your device before proceeding
- Click “Download Profile” to install the beta installer. This will be stored in Settings>General>Profile.
- Click the iOS 14 Public Beta Profile and restart your device
- Once restarted, go to Settings>General>Software Update, and proceed with installing iOS 14 Public Beta 2
If in fact, your device becomes corrupted, it might take days or weeks to see a genius since the stores are closed due to a pandemic and all. No Mac updates are available for testing yet.[bctt tweet=”Apple made its next iOS release public to iPhone users for public testing, but there is no guarantee if #iOS14 F’s up your device.” via=”no”]
