Apple seeds iOS and iPadOS 14 beta 8 to developers

Apple today released iOS 14 beta 8 to the public, likely the last, or one of the last beta (excluding the GM) updates for this year’s new iOS release before its launch later this month.

Apple yesterday announced an online keynote event for the 15th of September, less than one week away. Apple typically ships its iOS updates alongside that year’s new iPhone lineup. However, Bloomberg is reporting that this year’s event will be focused on the Apple Watch and iPad, not the iPhones. True or not, we can expect to see the GM (gold master) build of iOS 14 the day of the event or the same week.

While we are in the 8th beta cycle of iOS 14, there are still some key features that we’re missing. Apple states in the changelogs that a workaround for being unable to resize already placed widgets is to delete and re-add them. This could hint that the company is working on an easier way to resize widgets without re-adding them. Other features such as the Settings menu to select default web and email apps are also missing, however this is likely to launch when iOS 14 releases to the public.
