Today’s presentation of Apple turned out to be one of the most intense in recent times. This was influenced by the lack of spectators and pre-filmed material, which was probably rehearsed several times. At the output, we got an absolutely stunning picture, cinematic spans of the camera and an overwhelming density of announcements, despite the lack of hardware innovations. It is a pity, because of the threat of the spread of the coronavirus, we were left without a traditional concert by an invited star, with whom Apple usually completed its events. Well, at least without test builds, the OS was not left.
Just a few minutes ago, Apple, as promised, introduced the first beta versions of iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, watchOS 7 and macOS 10.16 Big Sur. By tradition, only developers with existing accounts will be able to download them initially, however, in a month updates will be available to everyone. It is especially curious that this year Apple decided to remove the watchOS testing restriction and promised to release a public watchOS 7 assembly that can be installed without a developer account, and then also easily rolled back to a stable version.
What’s New in iOS 14

- Extended folders
