Following the buggy launch of last year’s iOS 13, it’s not surprising that expectations from this year’s iOS 14 are running high. While Apple keeps a tight lid on the features and release date of the next update to the iOS and iPadOS operating systems, rumors continue to swirl around that the tech giant is taking strides to prepare it for its September 2020 release.  

The iOS14 will run on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and will reportedly be unveiled alongside the iPadOS 14 at the annual Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event in June. The upcoming update is set to introduce new internal measures that will squash bugs before its public release, enhancing the performance and stability of the iOS13.

The new update will reportedly be compatible with the same list of devices as iOS13 was, including iPod touch (7th gen), iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

As of now, there are no confirmed features for the iOS14 but the ever-growing library of the OS’ concept videos suggest that some of its most notable features include banner-based call notifications, a redesigned notification system, easy access to app store updates, Animoji filters in the camera app, alarm enhancements, and Siri improvements. The newest version of the iOS will also feature updates on Safari, Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and HomePod, as well as dark mode refinements.

Apple has yet to announce the official release date of the iOS14, but the past five iOS release dates suggest it could be sometime in September. If that is the case, then the first beta release of iOS14 will come following the WWDC, which could fall on the first week of June 2020.

Usually, developers start getting their hands on the earliest beta versions of iOS during or shortly after this conference. iOS updates are then released in mid-September, a week or two following the iPhone launch event. This gives Apple enough time to fix bugs that developers and Apple insiders usually find during the initial build.
