First iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 public betas are now available

Vlad, 09 July 2020

Today Apple has made the first public beta builds for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 available through its beta program enrollment process. If you're interested in running the upcoming OS versions on your smartphone or tablet, head over to the Apple Beta website to enroll your device and then receive the first (and subsequent) betas through software updates.

So far, before these public betas went out, we've had two developer betas out, one that was released immediately after the two OS versions got official at WwDC, and the second that got out yesterday.
