It has only been a day since Apple revealed the new software for its iPhone, iPad and Macs, and there's a lot of excitement around it. The iOS 14 was widely discussed as many iPhone users wanted to enjoy the new experience - even at the cost of it being beta with potential bugs. If you're among the inquisitive ones and eagerly waiting to test out the new mobile OS for iPhones, here's your chance.

The iOS 14 beta that is available for download is a developer preview. We'd still recommend waiting for public beta, which is going to be available to iOS users next month. The developer beta usually has bugs, causes random crashes among other issues. Users shouldn't install it on a primary device, which could hamper the user experience. Developers use the software to report early bugs so Apple can fix them in time before a public rollout.
