After wrapping the event on 15th September, Apple released the GM build for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 for beta testers. And finally today Apple has rolled out the public stable build of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 to everyone. Both iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 were in beta phase for a long time now and in total, Apple released eight beta updates. If you have an iPhone or iPad running on iOS 13 or iPadOS 13 then your wait is over. Finally, you will be able to experience iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. Here you will know how to download and install iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 Stable builds.
This is the first time that Apple released the public iOS build just after the GM edition without even a single day gap. The iOS 14 Beta 8 was stable enough to be used in a daily driver. So if you have tried the iOS 14 Beta 8 update then you can expect similar performance on the iOS 14 stable Update. And even the iOS 14 GM is almost the same except for the debugging used by developers. Apple has always been consistent with updates like the iOS 14 final update which is available for all the iPhones running on iOS 13.
The iOS 14 final update and iPadOS 14 final update is seeding with 18A373 build number. This brings a lot of new features if you haven’t tried any iOS 14 betas. But you won’t notice many changes if you have used iOS 14 Beta 8 or beta 7. There is no modem firmware update in the past few iOS 14 updates which means the connectivity and network will work the same in the iOS 14 final update. Here are some main iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 features that you can’t resist to try.
