I believe that some fans who have been paying attention to asiaiphone to this day should know something. Mingmei has also mentioned the release time of the official version of iOS 14 in the previous article about Apple’s iOS 14 system. Mingmei also talked about There should be beta 8 in the iOS 14 beta. It’s not that early this morning, Apple officially pushed the latest iOS 14/iPadOS 14 developer preview Beta 8 update, the version number is 18A5373a, to start a new round of iOS/iPadOS system testing.
The size of this update is only about 100M, and it is basically certain that the focus of this time is still bug fixes and stability improvements. Judging from user feedback on social media at home and abroad, it seems that there are no new features added, but to make the experience of the iOS 14 system more smooth and stable, and to prepare for the upcoming iOS 14 GM version.
Judging from the content of this update, it is estimated that the functions have been confirmed. At present, only some details need to be fixed. According to my guess, if there is no accident, the GM version should be released next week, and the official version will be next week.
Probably after the Apple press conference next week, the internal beta GM version system will appear immediately. Of course, it is possible to skip the GM version and directly release the official version of the conference. It is just a possibility. According to the normal process, the GM internal beta version should be released first. The official version will be released later. Although the GM version is the same as the official version, the process goes like this.
In addition, it is understood that the iOS 14 system is the most important update version of Apple after iOS 7. The system brings a new home screen interface design, newly designed exquisite widgets and App Library, similar to the widgets and assemblies in the Android system. At the same time, Apple also brings App Clips (similar to WeChat applets) and other functions.
Also in iOS 14, Apple finally gave the user the right to choose. The default browser and mail app can be taken over by a third-party program other than Apple. The app that can be set as the default browser must have web browsing. Basic attributes, including text boxes for entering URL addresses, search boxes, bookmark bars, etc., can accurately redirect user-specified links without redirection problems.
In addition, today’s iOS 14 Beta 8 version adds more Chinese texts, fixes the bug that the emoji pop-up from QQ typing cannot be used normally, fixes the previous app download in the App Store requires verification, and then skips to account payment The BUG of the setting page, the overall system experience has stabilized a lot, but there are still some incompatible apps and crashes. Currently, iOS Beta 8 has started to push.
In addition, there are more devices that support iOS 14. Apple has not forgotten old users. According to the information published on Apple’s official website, iPhone 6s, iPhone6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X , IPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone 11, iPhone11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, a total of 15 models all support iOS 14.
In general, the old models are covered, but only iPhone 6 is left behind. Considering its configuration and release time, it is reasonable for Apple to choose not to update iOS 14 for it.
Finally, what Mingmei Wuxian wants to say is: Mingmei Wuxian does not recommend that you update the beta version endlessly. Letting your iPhone run in the beta version for a long time will only continue to experience bugs and affect the use. Generally, the first beta version of the new version Just try it fresh.
This year’s iOS 14 system has limited changes in new features, mainly due to the improvement of device performance and system stability. It is somewhat similar to the iOS 12 system of the year. Mingmei believes that the official version is still worthy of everyone to experience.
Let’s wait for the official version of iOS 14 to arrive.
Friends who want to try the iOS 14 beta version can reply to “iOS 14” on Mingmei Infinite WeChat to get the description file (recommended developer version).
