Apple has released its first public beta builds of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 after announcing it just few days back in WWDC 2020. The public beta 1 comes just after a couple of developer beta versions. The iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 public beta 1 versions show us a glimpse of all the new features that are heading to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices later this fall.
The new iOS version is compatible with all the devices already supporting iOS 13. It will be also available for all the new devices including the five years old iPhone 6s released in 2015. For iPad users too, the new release will be available on all the iPads running iPadOS 13.
iOS 14 top features new App Library view to group multiple apps on one, single screen, live widgets, upgraded Siri which is more context aware, picture-in-picture support for videos with resizing option, updated messages app and lot of changes in Memoji. For iPad users, the first beta build of iPadOS 14 introduces sidebars and toolbars for apps, new Apple Pencil features, and ARKit 4 support for an enhanced augmented reality (AR) experience.
As usual with early beta builds, it's not advised to run these on your primary device. Bugs may appear, and if it is your daily driver it may be difficult to manage your work.
