Apple recently unveiled its latest operating system, the iOS 14, but it won’t be available likely until September.
The iOS 14 allows users to put widgets on the home screen for the first time; plus other mouthwatering features.
There are two ways to get the newly unveiled iOS 14, and start feeling the groove of the new features, before others.
You either get it earlier by signing up for the Apple’s beta programmes or you get it way earlier by signing up for Apple’s developer programme.
To get the iOS 14 through the beta programmes, you would have to wait till mid-July, but you will have the OS immediately if you use the developer programme option.
To be eligible you need to go to Apple’s beta software programme page and sign up – all you need to do so is a valid Apple ID (iCloud accounts qualify).
Before you download the beta iOS 14, it is advisable you do a backup of your device; just in case things go awry.
The next thing to do is manually install the iOS 14 profile on your phone by heading to Settings > General > Profile, and selecting the Profile Downloaded (a new option which should appear) and tapping the profile selected.
Stay on your settings but scroll down to software update, which should give you the option to download iOS 14. It is a 5GB update, so will take some time. Plug your phone to a charging point to make sure it doesn’t die while updating.
Once the update is complete, restart the phone and you should find it running the new iOS 14. Easy, right?
The iPhone 12, 12 Max, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max to be released later in the year will all come with iOS 14 pre installed.
However, iPhone 6s & 6s Plus, iPhone SE (2016), iPhone 7 & 7 Plus, iPhone 8 & 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS & XS Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro & 11 Pro Max and iPhone SE (2020) are all compatible with the new iOS.
