How to install the public beta of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 on our devices

Yesterday Apple released the first public beta version of iOS and iPadOS 14. A version that, although it is still in beta and contains bugs, Apple considers polished enough to deliver it beyond that to developers . Eager to try iOS 14 and iPadOS 14? We explain how to install them.

Public betas, more stable but betas after all

Before starting the update process, the main recommendation is that we make a backup of our device in Finder (or iTunes) . The reason for this is that the backups that the system makes automatically in iCloud replace the old ones, and the backups made in iOS 14 are not compatible with iOS 13. Therefore, if at any time we had to downgrade it is interesting to have a backup. With the copy completed, let’s see how to install iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, the steps are simple:

  1. We open the Apple public beta website on our iPhone or iPad.
  2. If we have not done so yet, let’s touch Sign upto register. If we are already registered we touch Sign in to start session.
  3. Fill in our username and password and access the web.
  4. We enter the iOSor iPadOS section .
  5. We move slightly downwards. Next to the Get startedheadline we tap on enroll your iOS device .
  6. We tap on Download profileand Allow
  7. When we are informed that the profile has been downloaded we touch Accept.
  8. We open the Settingsapp .
  9. At the top, next to our name, we touch Downloaded profile.
  10. We touch Installand enter the code for our iPhone.
  11. We touch Installto accept the conditions.
  12. We touch Installagain to confirm.
  13. We touch Doneor, if asked, Restart .
  14. We enter SettingsGeneral .
  15. We enter Software Update.
  16. When the public beta appears, click on Download and Installand enter the device code.

That easy. Once we have started the installation process, our iPhone or iPad will download all the necessary software and install it on the device. To do this, it is necessary that the iPhone or iPad has a minimum battery , so it is always a good idea to keep it plugged in during the process.

Apple’s public beta program draws the attention of many users, so in these first hours the download speed can be somewhat low, here we can only wait. Once our iPhone or iPad is on iOS or iPadOS 14 the following updates will occur via OTA, that is, in Settings > General > Software update .


The beta of iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 does not convince you? So we can go back to version 13

As we always remember that although it is one of the most stable betas that we have seen in recent years, it is still a beta version. Apple recommends that we do not install these versions on everyday devices and that we do so on secondary devices.
