There is a new version of iOS that will be released tomorrow, ahead of the new iPhone. This is very different from what happened in recent years, when Apple launches a new iPhone at the same time that it launches a new version of its software system. On September 16, 2020, we will see the launch of iOS 14, as well as tvOS 14 and iPadOS 14.
If you would like to try the latest version of iOS, take a look at your device’s settings. Go to GENERAL, then Software Update, then GO! You will probably see iOS 14 from the afternoon of September 16, 2020. At that time, we can expect a litany of downloads … so don’t be too shocked if the download takes too long.
NOTE: You may want to download iOS 13.7 now, if you are still reading this article on September 15, 2020. This is the day before Apple released iOS 14 for all supported devices. This is the version (on the iPhone) that allows you to choose the COVID-19 Exposure Notification system without having to download an application.
If you are looking for a list of features that are new to iOS 14, take a look at our articles on iOS 14 cycling and EV navigation, as well as CarPlay and iPhone features as a key. You will also find important updates for Siri, Translate and Messages on iOS 14.
Apple also noted that tvOS 14 will be delivered as a single download on September 16, 2020. This is the delivery date for the iPadOS 14 software too! If you’re not sure whether your device will receive iOS 14, check the compatibility list for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 – it will be the same as this complete public release list of compatible devices.
It will now be EXTRA interesting to see what Apple offers with the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro series. What’s left now that we’ve seen these software features on devices that are already on the market now? Could Apple deliver something that has not yet been released in full?
