Apple releases iOS and iPadOS 14 Public Beta 1

Apple has released the first public betas of iOS and iPadOS 14, a few weeks after releasing the first betas to developers, and just days after the second developer release.

To access the beta profiles, you’ll need to sign up on Apple’s public beta programme website. Apple says that this programme lets “users try out pre-release software” and “helps us identify issues, fix them, and make Apple software even better”.

You’ll need to download the Beta Profiles in the Safari browser on an iPhone or iPad and then open Settings > General > Profiles and tap the “iOS & iPadOS 14 Beta…” at the top. Follow the prompts to install, enter your passcode and restart your device. After checking for updates, you should see ‘iOS 14 Public Beta 1’.

iOS 14 includes revamped widgets, Picture in Picture, a built-in Translate app, minimised Siri and call view and many other major changes.
