If you want to be one of the first to experience the new iOS 14, you can join iOS 14 beta to get an early preview of the updates. The previous report of CNET provided tips on how to download the public beta versions of iPadOS 14 and iOS 14.
First, you need to visit the Beta Software Program website of Apple using the device you want to test. The next step will be tapping the "Sign Up" button. You need to agree with the beta program's terms using your Apple ID. Once you're done, you'll be given an option for iOS or iPadOS.
You need to read carefully the information Apple will provide before clicking the "Download Profile" option. Once you click the option, you'll be guided by the system to install a beta profile. Your device will require you to approve the installation in "Settings" after it's been downloaded on your iOS14 or iPadOS. Follow these steps to download and install the beta public version; Settings>General>Software Update.
After you successfully downloaded the iOS 14 public beta version, you can now enjoy the new features it will offer. Here's how they work.
You can tag a contact in a text message
This is one of the unique updates in the latest iPhone system since it will allow you to get the attention of your friend or family through text, even when they're not online any social media. You can do this by typing the "@" symbol, followed by their name in the chat. Long pressing on a text message and selecting "Reply" will allow you to make an "inline reply."
The TV app search field finally features useful placeholder text.

iOS 14 has a new built-in "Translate app"
iOS 14 will save you the trouble of browsing Google to translate a message. The new Translate app will convert text and hold conversations with a person who can only speak a different language. The languages that the app can translate are English, French, Mandarin Chinese, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Arabic, Korean, Russian, and Portuguese. You can translate a message by typing the word or phrase, or by clicking the microphone icon at the bottom of your screen.
