Everything new in Apple’s iOS 14 Beta 2

When a photo is taken, the source image is saved to the Photos library, so the preview doesn’t match the final picture. In iOS 14, you can change this behavior.

The above change to your mobile is just one of the many features you can get when you download the new operating system.

The iOS 14 is available on the iPhone 6s and later. As announced by Apple, it’s the same list of devices as iOS 13.
