IOS 14 Beta Is Out In Market:
IOS 14 Beta
IOS 14 Beta

HI everyone AK here from Sci and today Apple released iOS 14 
developer beta 2 this is available to developers only at this point and maybe the public beta will be out by the time you're watching this but you just don't know what Apple's going to do until they release it so expect public beta 1 either later today tomorrow or maybe a little wait a week or two it's hard to say what Apple's going to do with it hopefully it's out by the time you're watching this now this came in at eight hundred and thirty-one point five megabytes on my iPhone 11 pro max and it was similarly sized on all of these devices it's a pretty large update and I'm still having that storage bug I'll talk about that in a moment now along with iOS 14 beta 2 apples also released iPad OS 14 beta to Mac OS Big Sur beta to watch OS 7 beta 2 TV OS 14 beta 2 and while home pod OS did not get updated iOS 14 beta 2 now allows you to select default music apps for it so I actually am not at a place where my
 the home pod is but you'll see you can actually select default music apps on your home pod let's take a look at the build number and then talk about everything new the build number is 18 a five-three-one 9i and the last build the number ended in V so we've come up quite a few the closer we get to the letter A the closer we are to a finished product so that's quite a lot of progress in a couple weeks and there's quite a lot of fixes in this particular update the the first thing is there is a modem update at least for the iPhone 11 Pro max there may or may not be depending on which device you have but I have one on this the device also there were 55 known issues that still exist according to apples notes so just keep that in mind this is still in early beta there's bound to be bugs but so far it's been pretty good but there are 43 resolved issues so one of the resolved issues are this weather widget should now show up properly based on where you're located it was kind of defaulting back to Cupertino so they've resolved that and also ar7 that makes wallpapers that sometimes I
 use in these videos has said that the faded wallpaper problem has been resolved for him so I haven't seen that issue myself but hopefully, it's resolved for you now the first feature I wanted to talk about isn't really in area I live but if you go into Maps and you live in an area that has
 congestion zones that charge tolls such as maybe Paris or London those will now pop up in maps also there will be alerts for license-plate restriction zones if your country has that as well so we don't have that at least where I live but if you're in a country that does have that well that should be available in Apple maps for you to test out now reminders has been updated with those emojis Apple talked about this with iOS 14 beta 1 but we never saw it and you can see we now have emoji here that you can update so for the family for example if I want to go in and change the name and appearance I can change them to whatever I'd want to change the actual color change it to an umbrella whatever you'd like it to be you can change it and then when you go back to your lists you'll see the different emoji so those have been updated now in the control center the actual button for whatever you're controlling has grown in size some people are seeing this some people are not but you'll see mine says office favorites I can tap on this and see my different lights for the room I'm in and it's just gotten bigger some people are not seeing that there's also a new option for the control center so if we go into settings and then the control center you'll see we now have a new show home controls options so this is all new as well and if you don't want home controls we turn it off they disappear in your control center turn it on and they're back so I like that they've added that option back and it's nice to have that now if you're using a camera within the home app there's a new option so you'll see I have a camera says circle view camera.
it's a Logitech home kit camera I'm testing out and it's actually, open on another device so you can't actually see this but if I go into the camera and within the camera we now have an option for a picture in picture now the actual picture and picture option was there before as far as swiping up and it would give you a little picture in the picture but now we have a physical button to make it do that so after we hit the button it will shrink into a picture in whatever corner you'd like and you can move it around now within widgets, there are a few new things as well so if we go over to our widgets press and hold and a widget will scroll down and you'll see we now have files so we now have a new files widget if we open this up you'll notice here as well down at the bottom the color actually matches the icon so if we go out of this maybe we go to Batteries you'll see the battery

 widget icon down here to add a widget now matches now we also have an update as well when it comes to the photos of widgets so if we go into photos we now have a larger size for photos as well so I just have it blurred out since it's family but it's a larger photo size that you have for a widget option apples now updated the calendar app so it shows the abbreviation of the actual weekday so you'll see here it says Tuesday or Tue and on the old version with beta 1 it has the full word written out so you'll see here it's abbreviated in beta 2.

the app library apple makes it super convenient to find your apps and everything else but one thing you couldn't do before is if you added an the app specifically directly right into the app library and not on one of your screens you couldn't delete it before and so if we go into productivity for example wherever that is we'll go into productivity tap and hold on the the calendar you'll see it says to delete the app if I do the same thing on beta 1 it's not going to let me delete it the same way so we'll tap and hold and you'll see it says add an event to screen or to the home screen or add an event you can't delete the app so if you added it directly to the list you can now delete it like you should be able to from the start
 now there's a couple update for music one is a new option so if we go into our settings and then scroll down until we find music under music we now have an option for motion and it says animated cover art won't be displayed it's currently turned on we can have it on for Wi-Fi only or have it turned off altogether this just uses a little extra data so they're giving you that option within the music app, they've also updated haptic feedback so that it responds when you press play or maybe you press next or back or fast forward or rewind you press those buttons you get a little haptic feedback from the the phone itself letting you know you've pressed it's a nice little touch it's been updated it's very subtle but it is there now within settings if we go to settings and then our ID at the top you'll see family sharing and family sharing has a new icon so it says family sharing and we have a new icon here it's just been updated with a little new look now the iPad does not have a whole lot new but there something new specific to the iPad and

 that's under photos so if we go into photos and then bring over our sidebar here we now have a utility section that has imports hidden and recently deleted so that's actually been updated and that wasn't there before it's just a little addition to the sidebar and I imagine we'll see more of these things later on with the iPad but the iPad gets all of the different updates that I mentioned already although some of the haptic feedback won't be there there's a couple other little changes one of them has to do with the health app so if we go into the health app we'll scroll down a little bit and there's a new article for hand-washing saying hand-washing can protect your health now if you're running watch OS 7 you'll have the option for hand-washing if you have a series for series 5 and you can go into the article learn about this and also turn it on from the health app if it's not already turned on so you have that option it's something I've already got on I'm not seeing the option but some are seeing that option now something else that's very minor that's been changed is the clock icon you can see the hands they're slightly bigger than they were before so if I bring in beta 1 here let me bring it over and you can see side-by-side that the clock hands are slightly different so they're a a little bit different on each clock they're a little bit thicker on the newer version it's a minor update and Apple could change it back before it's released to the public now one final thing is the shortcuts app will no longer open that shortcut files anymore so I have a few shortcuts I've made I did a video on this some time ago let's download one it's from my website as you can see we'll go to activity open it up and it says shortcuts cannot be opened importing shortcuts as files is it not so currently supported please share shortcuts using iCloud hopefully they bring this back it was working before and it's something that they definitely need to update but it could just be a bug for now and then finally many people have been complaining about using email for quite some time but one thing that really bugs me is I actually can't highlight and then drag my finger to delete the email anymore this was true with beta 1 they haven't fixed this so make sure to report it in the feedback it's definitely something I'd like to see brought back you could use you used to be able to just tap and then slide your finger down and
 select all of them it was a really easy way to select a lot of emails now that's it for this particular update there may be a few other things but I wanted to talk about performance we'll talk about the battery and take a look at some of the Geekbench scores now the first thing is the battery life on iOS 14 beta 1 was not fantastic for me so if we go into the battery you'll see my battery health is at 97% completely normal for the age of the phone 80% after two years is normal and updates don't degrade this they just simply check for it again but if we take a look at the last ten days I've been running this every day let's take a look at yesterday you'll see I used almost 50% of the battery and only got 2 hours and 23 minutes of screen on time 5 hours and 15 minutes of screen the off time that's not really that good I used to get 10 to 12 hours of screen on time and then maybe five hours of screen off time right now the battery life isn't great although it may be a little bit better than it says because right now it says I have 61% of my battery life left and for today it's 2 hours and 49 minutes it's really hit or miss I'm getting about 6 hours most of the time maybe eight hours at best but hopefully they'll update it with this particular update and it will fix that issue now other than battery life my storage isn't great so maybe there's something correlated it's maybe filling some cache up or something like that so if we take a look at my

 you'll see my storage is still using a huge amount of 250 gigabytes of 256 gigabytes are used previously to this I'm using about 60 gigabytes on a 256 gigabyte phone 60 to 80 or something like that right now I'm using a huge amount in other so I was hoping this update would fix that automatically you can fix it by restoring on a computer but I really didn't want to do that if I don't have to now as far as performance I've noticed a couple things so far on the older phone and so for example on the iPhone se when I was typing in a password when I was setting this up with the latest update it wanted me to Rivera Phi some things the keyboard would freeze quite a lot so if I go into music and then go to search and type in maybe I guess an artist here capitalize it a a lot of the times the keyboard will just freeze and not work properly I noticed that when putting in my password a couple of times so it was really kind of a pain the performance wasn't great but maybe it was doing a lot of things in the background as far as the camera and everything else it's fairly responsive scrolling seems to be okay so far it's fairly smooth but if you're having issues make sure you report them in feedback because new updates do not tend to slow down iPhones anymore they seem to be pretty solid that way so just be sure to check that battery life will improve over time it's not a priority with early betas until it's out - maybe public beta testers and out to the the public in general apples focusing on fixing all the bugs that they have with this particular update now if we take a look at the Geekbench scores you'll see the iPhone 11 Pro Mac scored 1338 for single-core 3000 387 for multi-core that's actually pretty good and much higher than I've seen before now unfortunately, this particular benchmark did not save what I had before it only has two days but that may be because the app had to be reinstalled at some point or maybe with the update now let's take a look at all of the different devices here and see what they scored now on the left is the 2020 12.9-inch iPad Pro in the middle is the first generation iPhone SE and on the the right is the iPhone 11 Pro Mac's all of the scores are pretty decent this time around and if your scores are anywhere in this general range expect similarly performance and sometimes these will increase a little bit too as time goes on and background processing has completed so that's it for iOS 14 beta to expect a beta every couple of weeks right now and then it will probably pick up in August to a weekly schedule also we may see iOS 13 points 6 betas 4 or a final release as soon as tomorrow so it's hard to say I think we're going to see beta 4 tomorrow and then maybe a final release the week after that but it's kind of hard to say at this point also I recently had the iPhone 12 prototype units and here's one of them so if you haven't seen the video about that I'll link it in the description as well be sure to check that out and let I know what you think of those as well if you'd like to get your hands on this wallpaper, of course.
