How to Download iOS 14 and iPadOS 14But first, you might be wondering how you'll be able to install them. Anyone with an iPhone 6S or newer (that includes the 2016 iPhone SE) can download iOS 14 right now. For the tablets, you'll need an iPad Air 2 or newer, an iPad Mini 4 or newer, an iPad 5th generation or newer. All iPad Pro models can install iPadOS 14 now, too.Now, before you install anything, make sure to back up your device. (We have a guide that can help !) Once you've done that, the rest is very simple. Open the Settings app, tap General, and then Software Update. Your device will search for an update and will then start downloading it. It will take a few minutes and will automatically restart, so make sure you initiate this when you aren't doing anything important.
As a word of advice, the first version of new Apple updates can still have some bugs. The safest bet is to wait a day or two to see if there are reports about any major issues. If not, you can rest easy installing it. Now, onto what's new.App LibraryFor years, the iPhone home screen has been a grid of app icons that go on for pages and pages. That's changed now. In iOS 14, you can hide pages of apps you don't use often, and a scroll to the right will let you access your new App Library. It's quite similar to the app drawer on Android phones , but instead of more icons in an endless vertical stream, apps are grouped into various categories like Social, Productivity, and Entertainment.
