Coming Soon: iOS 14

Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas. While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That's why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final release.

This fall, Apple will introduce iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. The software updates include new Apple Maps features, including bike lanes, bike paths, and bike-friendly road directions, electric vehicle routing, congestion zones, new city guides, and more.
