Two weeks after the release of the second developer beta and a month after WWDC 2020, Apple will release iOS 14 beta 3 to developers today. iOS 14 brings new features such as widgets, the App Library, and more. The third beta will bring further refinements to the new features and continued stability improvements.
iOS 14 beta 3 details
iOS 14 beta 3 is available to developers via an over-the-air update. To install the update, simply head to the Settings app, choose General, then choose Software Update. If you don’t immediately see iOS 14 beta 3 available for download, keep checking as the update is still rolling out.
The second developer beta of iOS 14 was released two weeks ago with a handful of small but notable updates, including changes to Picture in Picture, a mew Files widget, App Library changes, and more. You can find all of the details on what changed in iOS 14 beta 2 here.
Apple’s new software version won’t be complete until the fall, at which point it will be released to the general public. Testers should still expect performance and stability issues when running iOS 14 beta 3 on primary devices for the time being.
