Apple has released public beta versions for its latest iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 platforms and if you’ve long been waiting for the release then it’s time for you to act now. With the beta version now available, all the Apple users will have a chance to test the latest software from Apple ahead of the actual release scheduled in September.
