Keep reading to learn how to download and install it on your device. With \u200ciOS 14\u200c and \u200ciPad 14\u200c, Apple is introducing several new features and improvements, including Home screen widgets and an App Library, updates for existing apps, Siri\u00a0improvements, and many other tweaks that streamline the iOS and\u00a0iPadOS\u00a0interface. When Apple announced \u200ciOS 14\u200c and \u200ciPad 14\u200c, it also made developer betas available to test on iPhone\u00a0and\u00a0iPad. Currently, you need an Apple Developer account to install the software, but public betas are coming in July, so anyone will be able to try it. By nature, \u200ca beta is a pre-release software, so installing the software on a secondary device is highly recommended. The stability of beta software cannot be guaranteed, as it often contains bugs and issues that have yet to be ironed out, so installing it on your day-to-day device isn't advised.
