[UPDATED] iOS 14 with new home screen widgets and App Library is available to download on 17 September

[ UPDATE 16/09/2020 21:30 ]: Turns out Apple had pushed the final iOS 14 version earlier to Public Beta users at the same time as developers. For those that didn’t participate in the public beta, will only receive the final version on the 17th of September.

After months of public beta, Apple is rolling out its latest iOS 14 to supported iPhone models worldwide including Malaysia starting today. The new operating system update brings several new UI tweaks including redesigned home widgets, an app library and less distracting UI for incoming calls and Siri. Apple is also beefing up its privacy features to provide greater transparency on what your apps are doing in the background.

iOS 14 software update

If you didn’t get any update notification yet, you can go to Settings > General > Software Update to download iOS 14. Just ensure that your phone has more than 50% of battery and you’re connected to WiFi. You would need around 5GB of available storage to download the final iOS update.

iOS 14 iPhone compatible

The latest iOS version is compatible with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus or newer and it also includes the 1st generation iPhone SE and the 7th gen iPod Touch. The iPhone 6s turns 5 this year and it is remarkable that it can still continue to receive a major system update. However, do note that some features may not be available on older iPhone models due to hardware limitation.

Apart from iOS, Apple is also rolling out iPadOS 14 which is compatible for iPad Air 2 or newer, as well as all iPad Pro models.
