Apple continues to roll out beta versions of its next major updates across platforms.
Apple today released its eighth beta versions of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 to developers. As usual, we do not recommend installing these beta versions on your mainstream devices. Although the previous beta was fairly stable, it still contains some problems. In addition, the corresponding public beta versions will be released soon.
Registered developers can download updates from Apple’s developer site or over the air on registered devices.
Apple continues to improve the updates with new features. For example, there were a lot of changes in the third beta version. These include the Snapchat integration for Apple Music and a new service icon. The Clock widget has become more useful. Beta 4 brought back 3D Touch, an updated Apple TV app widget, and more. Beta 5 introduced a new Apple News widget, improved widget privacy, and more. In the sixth beta, we found a new welcome screen in Apple Maps and a new mode for AirPods Pro.
In the seventh beta, Apple changed the categories in the app library, added more wallpapers for Dark Mode, and more.
Apple also released tvOS 14 beta eighth, which can be installed via Xcode, and watchOS 7 beta eighth. To update your Apple Watch, it must be at least 50% charged, connected to a power source, and close to your iPhone.
