Security researchers, hackers and bloggers have had access to an early version of iOS 14 since “at least February”, according to DeputyThere have been a lot of leaks on iOS 14 in the last few months and it seems possible that the information came from this early version of the operating system.
It is common for small treats for Apple software updates to expire in the months and weeks before Apple officially unveils them. But it’s quite unusual for the whole pre-release build of iOS to reach the Internet months before it was announced – and this may be the first time it has happened so far in advance, according to a source cited in DeputyReport.
Current expiring features for iOS 1
In previous years, Apple shared the first beta version of the next version of iOS at its global developer conference in June, and it looks likely this will happen again at this year’s WWDC, which begins on June 22 as an online event only. “Now in its 31st year, WWDC20 will be an opportunity for millions of creative and innovative developers around the world to gain early access to the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS,” Apple said in a recent press release. Apple will usually release the next version of iOS to the public in the fall along with the new iPhone models.
