If you want to jump into the iOS 14 beta in any way shape or form, we have you covered. The new operating systems include a range of new changes from the new iPhone home screen, the sleep tracker on the Apple Watch and a handwriting-to-text feature on the iPad. We are going to cover how to install the iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and WatchOS 7 beta onto your device.
Keep in mind that this is an early version of the software and while Apple makes sure it is as stable as possible, it may bug out. If you are reading this you know how it works.
Is this the Public Beta?
No. Apple will host the iOS 14 Public Beta in July sometime. The software you will install here is the same as the public version. However, the process should be the same for installing the public beta.
Which devices are supported?
If your device can run iOS 13 then it can run the newer software. This includes;
– iPhone 6S or newer
– iPad Air 2 or newer
– All iPad Pro models
– iPad fifth generation or newer
– iPad Mini 4 or newer
How to Install iOS 14 Beta
The easiest method for installing the beta is doing it from your device itself. Make sure you have backed up through iTunes or iCloud first, of course. Then you want to head over to betaprofiles.com. Find the OS you are looking for. If you are installing WatchOS 7 then make sure you do this in your iPhone. If you are installing iPadOS 14 then make sure you do this on your iPad.
– Visit betaprofiles.com
– Select the OS you want to install
– This will download a beta profile to your device
– Click “allow” and install the certificate
– Go to Settings – General – Software Update and begin the installation
– For WatchOS 7, head to the Watch App – General – Software Update
Your device will now download and install the beta. It will reboot a couple of times and once completed, you will be running newer software.
The iOS 14 Beta Profile means you can download and install the OS without an IPSW. It is also the easiest way to do install it on the go. Once you have the beta profile installed, you will then get new updates to the software as Apple releases them.
