If I want to go from being on beta 8 of iOS 14 to the official public iOS 14 release tomorrow, all I have to do is delete the beta profile and do a software update? Or would I have to delete and restore my iPhone?
What are the benefits of going onto the GM version over The beta?

There’s no way it’s ready for prime time.

Are you saying the betas have been bad?

Iphone 6s, IMHO the last great iphone, is on its last legs with IOS 14....:(

Yeah, I have an iPhone 6s and am concerned about whether or not I should ignore iOS 14 like I did with iOS 13. Did Apple learn their lesson with bugs and pushing releases out too fast? Is it slower? How much more broken stuff will I encounter?

iOS 13 breaks Safari synch with High Sierra, which is why I didn’t finally give in for dark mode after people claimed the majority of the problems with iOS 13 were addressed (and I don’t believe that either).

Today. I'm downloading it now. 3.87GB on the 2020 SE.
Without a developer account, you are able to run software update as a normal user and get it? If you are, then I am incorrect as that would be "public" availability. If not, and Apple is being honest about when its available to the public and is only offering the GM to those with developer accounts, then... yeah.

Deleting the beta profile should work. Hopefully.

Guys I'm a public beta tester but am seeing a software update right now. BUT from what I've read, the GM release is tomorrow. So, what version am I seeing on my iPhone?

You can do it right now. Just search for the update.

Lots of issues. The watch is laggy. It won’t load up all the faces sometimes. If you choose a Memoji for a face it doesn’t let you pick your own, only the animals

This update took HOURS, all the other 14 updates were just a few minutes. It says it is 14.0... did I get a Golden Master or am I somehow on the real deal?

Installing PB GM on iPhone 8 Plus 256. Over 3GB so a clean install not a incremental.

It was almost the opposite for me.

The golden master is the real deal.

When you tap on where it says 14.0, what does it say?

Updated 2018 12.9 to GM beta. News widget still not working. Some of my apps are smaller than the others. I‘ve restarted the iPad, didn‘t fix it. Any ideas?
