iOS 14 release date, beta download, and supported iPhones: All you need to know
Anyhow, iOS 14 is coming later this year, most certainly launching alongside Apple's next iPhones in the autumn. As most Apple fans are probably aware, Cupertino usually holds its big hardware event in the first half of September, most often on the second Tuesday of the month. Any iPhones that get announced hit the shelves in a week or so after the announcement, and the official release of iOS to all eligible iPhones, new or old, happens alongside this important device release. If we had to guesstimate, we'd say that Apple could hold its iPhone event on Tuesday, September 8, or Wednesday, September 9, with a probable release date for both the next iPhones and iOS 14 by September 20.
But what devices are getting iOS 14? Traditionally, Apple kept its devices on a strict five-year update cycle and gradually dropped devices that were five years older than the newest iOS version and well past their prime. Surprisingly enough, iOS 13 didn't actually follow in those footsteps and didn't drop the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus from the list of supported devices.
