It beta be a good update.
Apple’s beta OSes often go through a public beta and this fall’s new iOS is no exception. Be warned though — it’s in beta for a reason. Crashes, system instability, or even device bricking is possible. It’s not recommended to install the beta on your main iPhone or iPad, just in case the worst happens.
To access the beta, a few steps need to be taken. First, you will need to head to Apple’s beta website and download the configuration file that will allow your iDevice to update using the beta file. Reboot your device, and it should begin updating to the beta.
Some major changes coming to iOS 14 are the ability to (finally) add widgets to your home screen, similar to Android, a new App Library to let you browse your apps more effectively, and the introduction of mini apps that can run without needing to be installed, typically for one off instances, called App Clips. Languages can be downloaded to be used offline in a superpowered translation tool. New Messaging features are included too, such as the ability to tag someone with an @, much like Twitter. Privacy and related features continue to be improved. Various other apps and features are included and updated as well. All in all, the update looks to be a major one for the better.
