You can now download iOS 14 beta 7 and iPadOS 14 beta 7 as IPSW links and OTA updates as registered developers with access to an active Apple developer account.

As expected, Apple has been pushing through the pre-release seeds of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 in line with the company’s usual release plan. History has already shown us that a number of betas will be released, followed by a Golden Master (GM) seed, and then quickly followed by a public release that generally has the same build number as the GM.

There has been some discussion around when iOS 14 will actually release due to a potential delay to the iPhone 12 range shipping but we’re still expecting an official firmware release later this month.

When iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are released, users will be able to benefit from brand new features and functionality, such as App Clips and a stunning new App Library feature. Apple has also introduced a gorgeous new Widgets feature that lets users make better use of the space on their Home screen. Additionally, popular apps have been updated to be a lot more powerful and useful, such as Messages and Maps, with the latter now including new cycling directions, electric vehicle routing, and curated Guides for certain cities. iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 will also have a new focus on user privacy and exposing apps that try and do nefarious things, such as copying the contents of the clipboard without permission.

If you’re after download links, you can get the relevant IPSW links directly from developer.apple.com or as an over-the-air update if you already have an earlier beta installed on your device or have the correct beta installation configuration profile. If you are planning on installing iOS 14 beta 7, iPadOS 7, or both, then keep in mind that this is still pre-release software and will likely have glitches and instability issues.

We are edging ever-closer to a late-September public release so it’s more important than ever that you feed any issues back to Apple to allow the company’s engineers to ensure that both iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are as smooth as they possibly can be when the release date comes around.
