How to download and install iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 beta, from iPhone 6s to iPad Pro 2020
All iPhone and iPad models compatible with iOS 14 and iPadOS 14
What's new in iOS 14? This year, Apple went for the Android's jugular by not only ensuring that iOS 14 is as bug free as possible, unlike the iOS 13 drama, but also encroached on Android's turf by introducing real homescreen widgets, gestures and default app swaps.
Keep in mind that you should only install the public beta if you are comfortable with experiencing bugs in normal usage of your phone.
How to install the iOS 14 beta:
1. Do a full iTunes backup of your data since you're about to install beta software.
2. Open Apple's public beta page on the device on which you're about to install the iOS 14 beta.
3. Enroll your device by downloading the beta profile, which can be found here.
4. Head to Settings > General > Software update and then you should see the iOS 14 beta available for download. Press the "Download and Install" button.
5. After the beta has been downloaded, your device will reboot. Once it boots up again, it will be running the beta software.
How to downgrade from iOS 14 public beta:
1. Remember that backup we made you do? Well, it's the cornerstone of downgrading from iOS 13.
2. Connect your device to a computer and launch iTunes.
3. Put your phone into recovery mode:
On an iPhone 8 or later: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Then, press and hold the Side button until you see the recovery-mode screen.
On an iPhone 6s and earlier, iPad, or iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. Don't release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Keep holding both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
On an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons at the same time. Don't release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Keep holding both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
4. iTunes will prompt you to restore your device and therefore reset it back to its factory defaults.
5. Once your device has been restored, sign up with your Apple ID and restore the full iTunes backup you hopefully have lying around.
