Start off by ensuring you have 50% or more battery remaining and that you are connected to a Wi-Fi connection. Follow the steps outlined below:
- Launch the Settings app
- Navigate to General > Software Update
- Tap on Download and Install once the new beta 3 update shows up
Are you looking to install the beta for the first time on your iPhone or iPad? Then start off by making sure your device is compatible with iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 first. Once it has been confirmed that your device is in the list, follow the multiple methods outlined below in how to download and install the update onto your device.
Download and Install Over the Air
This is the method I will highly recommend since it does not even involve fiddling around with a computer or a bunch of cables. You also get to keep your current files and settings, too. Simply head over to Apple’s Developer Program website, sign up, grab the iOS configuration profile and the update will be available to you over the air.

Clean Install the Beta
This is perhaps the nuclear option when it comes to installing beta updates. This will erase your device completely, but you will end up with a fresh installation of the beta. This is a method which ensures maximum day to day stability, but it won’t be quite perfect since you are dealing with beta software anyway.

Downgrade to iOS 13 If you are absolutely done and dusted with iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 beta, then you can downgrade back to iOS 13 right away.
