iOS 14 release date, beta download, and supported iPhones: All you need to know

iOS 14 release date, beta download, and supported iPhones: All you need to know

iOS 14 is the most “Android” update Apple’s OS has probably ever been treated to, scoring key new features like a dedicated App Library that automatically sorts all of your apps at the end of your homescreens, homescreen widgets (finally), and picture-in-picture mode for iPhone, a feature that was previously only available on the iPad. Overall, a very feature-rich update that’s bridging the gap between iOS and Android even more and sparking the question… Is there evn a gap anymore?

Anyhow, iOS 14 is coming later this year, most certainly launching alongside Apple’s next iPhones in the autumn. As most Apple fans are probably aware, Cupertino usually holds its big hardware event in the first half of September, most often on the second Tuesday of the month. Any iPhones that get announced hit the shelves in a week or so after the announcement, and the official release of iOS to all eligible iPhones, new or old, happens alongside this important device release. If we had to guesstimate, we’d say that Apple could hold its iPhone event on Tuesday, September 8, or Wednesday, September 9, with a probable release date for both the next iPhones and iOS 14 by September 20.  

But what about the iOS 14 beta? Rest assured that both a developer and public betas are on their way, with the developer one already available for registered developers with eligible devices that have been enrolled in the beta program. Here’s a release timeframe for the betas and the final version of iOS 14:

  • Developer beta availability – June 22, 2020 (learn how to download it here)
  • Public beta availability – July 2020 (learn how to download it here)
  • Final release – Autumn 2020
But what devices are getting iOS 14? Traditionally, Apple kept its devices on a strict five-year update cycle and gradually dropped devices that were five years older than the newest iOS version and well past their prime. Surprisingly enough, iOS 13 didn’t actually follow in those footsteps and didn’t drop the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus from the list of supported devices. 
Fortunately, iOS 14 will be available to all devices that have iOS 13. Here are what iPhones will be getting iOS 14 in the autumn:

  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone XR

  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
