Public beta versions of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14: Install them?

Apple has released the public beta versions for iOS 14, iPadOS 14, macOS Big Sur, tvOS 14 and watchOS 7, offering users a great opportunity to try out the new software and let the company know in the comments.

But with beta releases come dangers for which you need to be prepared.

Just because it is a public beta, do not be fooled into believing that there are no bugs. There are and in fact there are many. Public beta releases bring with them all sorts of problems, from bugs to software, to compatibility issues with all applications and the software you are running.

iPadOS iOS beta

It can be really annoying if you suddenly find that everything works perfectly except program which is used continuously.

Now, installing Apple betas is not as destructive according to Apple. You can reset programs if things go wrong - Apple has released related recovery instructions for iOS, iPadOS, MacOS, tvOS and WATCH.

However, you should also be prepared for the worst case scenario and always make sure you have a backup of all data (an off-device backup, in case your device does not restart). Data loss is really the worst kind of problem you can face with beta versions.

Data recovery in Appliances where beta is problematic it is really time consuming, so be careful. You can play Russian roulette with data and you win, but the question is what will you do this once you lose.

Here are our tips for public beta releases

  • Do not run beta versions on devices you rely on!
  • You have updated backups outside the device
  • Do not run betas on hardware that does not belong to you!

We hope all of the above help you decide if you want to install the new public beta versions (iOS 14, iPadOS 14, macOS Big Sur, tvOS 14 and watchOS 7) released by Apple.
