The fourth public beta of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, and the first public beta of macOS Big Sur now available

After the developer versions, Apple has released the public beta 4 versions of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. If you already had a previous public beta installed, you can update your devices as if you were using a stable version.

In addition, the company has launched the macOS Big Sur first public beta. For the first time, anyone who dares can try the next big version of macOS without having to be affiliated with the Apple Developer Program. As long as your Mac meets the minimum requirements, of course.

The new generation of Apple OSs already takes shape before back to school

Among the main novelties of these new betas is the COVID-19 virus exposure notification API, new widgets (some third-party developers already appear), 3D Touch and improvements in the Spotlight search engine. Remember that macOS Big Sur has a complete redesign of its interface, something that may convince many to install this public beta.

But remember: you must install this system at your own risk. This is a preview version, so it will contain bugs and will not perform as expected. Back up your data and be on the safe side, because data loss is more likely.
