Apple releases iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, and watchOS 7

Just as Apple has promised during its “Time Flies” event on Tuesday, Apple has released all but one of its big fall operating system updates. You can now update your devices to iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, and watchOS 7. The company has not given any guidance about the exact release date for macOS Big Sur.

This big update add an App Library and home screen Widgets to your iPhone, as well as features like App Clips, privacy enhancements, and a host of other improvements.

With watchOS 7 you get new fitness routines like dance, sleep tracking, new watch faces, hearing protection, and an automatic hand-washing timer.

The tvOS 14 update isn’t as big as others, but still adds useful features like picture-in-picture throughout the OS and support for 4K YouTube.

We’ve compiled a list of all our tips, guides, and feature breakdowns for iOS 14.
