We are going to explain when iOS 14 comes out and what iPhone models are going to be compatible, so if you have an iPhone and are waiting for all the news that this new version of the operating system will offer, you know what to expect. And above all, that you know if your iPhone is going to receive the update or is already too old for it.
Before we start, we are going to tell you that there is still no specific release date for iOS 14. However, Apple is usually a company of customs in terms of how it launches each new beta version and when it releases the final, so we can already get an idea of when it will arrive.
When will iOS 14 arrive
There is still no official date for the release of iOS 14, and we also do not know when each of the betas that will be released will be arriving before the release of the final version. But based on how Apple usually launches new versions, we are going to tell you what to expect.
As for betas, the first thing you need to know is that there are developer betas and public betas so that any user can start testing the new features and report any bugs so that Apple can correct them.
The first beta for developers was released on June 22, and these betas are usually released approximately every two weeks. The public beta is usually launched from the second or third developer beta. Apple has already said that it will arrive in July, although it should not be before the middle of that month.
Once they begin to be released, new versions of the public beta usually arrive a day or two after the new developer releases, giving some time to correct any glitches that might appear with each new release. Therefore, new versions would be released every two weeks that would not have new functions, but would be solving bugs and improving the performance and consumption of the operating system.
The final versions of iOS are usually released when the new iPhones are announced on Apple’s Keynotes, although sometimes they can arrive a few days earlier. This is usually around the month of September, so if you don’t want to expose yourself to flaws in betas, you’ll still have to wait a few months.
There is still no official date for the presentation of the next iPhone, so we can not tell you a day when iOS 14 will arrive. It is expected to be in mid-September, although there could be some delays, especially this year. with the delays in the production chain that could have been caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
