Apple has released the public betas for iOS 14, iPadOS 14, macOS Big Sur, tvOS 14, and watchOS 7 public betas, which offers an excellent opportunity for users to test drive the new software, give Apple feedback (mileage varies on how useful that is), and become more familiar with what’s changing.
But with betas come risks.
It’s right there in the name — beta. Just because this is a public beta, don’t let that fool you into thinking that there are no bugs. There’s plenty of bugs in final releases. Betas bring with them all sorts of issue, from bugs in the software itself, to compatibility issues with all the apps and software that you rely on.
