iOS 14 and iOS 14.2 Beta 1 Follow Up Review

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

Hi everyone aaron here for zollotech and ios 14 has been out for a few days and i've been using it on my iphone 11 pro max and i've also installed ios 14.2 beta 1 the other day so i wanted to talk about all the issues that i've been having and that you've been having based off the youtube community poll i've also been using this on my 2020 ipad pro 12.9 and i have it on an iphone 11 and other devices as well and so the first thing i've noticed an issue with is with ios 14 ios 14 while it is mostly stable airdrop continues to have an issue so

The overall stability of the operating system is good but there's weird bugs all throughout and so the first thing i've been having is when i try to airdrop to somebody it just doesn't seem to work properly sometimes then i have to hard reboot my phone it fixes the problem for a while this could be sending it to my ipad or mac or any of the others now also the other issues i've been having is for example the control center gap was here now with 14.2 that's fixed so they've

Changed it they've fixed it with 14.2 but with ios 14 it's still an issue also in ios 14 if you set a default browser so if you go into your settings for example and then maybe you go down to if you have chrome installed or one of the others and you want to set that as a default if you reboot the phone it goes back to safari so they need to address this and fix it in future updates other people are saying that audio issues are sort of an issue when

Notifications come in and maybe you're playing a video so maybe you're playing a video on youtube you're watching one of my videos or someone else's or just any video anywhere else and then you go in and you receive a phone call all of a sudden that will mute and then it won't come back after the phone call's over or a notification comes in and causes that to happen so there seem to be a couple weird issues with that now there's some saying there's lag throughout the os

Depending on what they're doing sometimes it's laggy and i think that depends on which device you're actually using i haven't seen too much of that myself but quite a few people are saying that the phone is getting quite hot when playing a game so on the back of the phone it will heat up and not just playing a game but regular usage so it's normal for it to get warm but it's getting unbelievably hot for some people this seems to be more people than usual compared to what we've had before so it

Seems to be an issue for quite a few people now with 14.2 i actually have not found that to be much of an issue so it definitely seems to be a problem for some and i'm not sure if it's specific to devices but people are having it some others are saying that they're having issues in the app store being laggy or just having issues where it won't let them download a specific app so they're trying to download a game it won't let them download it or an update so there's some weird bugs with

That and also a few people are saying that when they're using the phone it's showing the wrong name when they're calling someone so there's definitely some weird bugs here also a few people are having issues with wi-fi and bluetooth connectivity and some are saying that the mail app is also lagging as well so there's definitely some issues now some people are facing random camera issues where it's not working properly thankfully i haven't really seen this but some people are actually seeing weird camera issues with that so also

Some lag between home screens so there's really random bugs in this particular one a few people are also saying that face id isn't working properly for them and also the accessibility feature where you can tap the back of the phone they're not seeing shortcuts i actually am seeing this so i don't really have an issue with it so if i go into accessibility here and then i go to touch and then scroll down to back tap then double tap i still have my shortcuts there so you can see here's all my shortcuts so

Flashlight for example here's flashlight so it's still there and some people aren't seeing it so if i double tap the back of the phone it will activate so it seems to be not there for some people but for others it is so i'm not really sure what the difference is and 14.2 seems to fix a lot of these bugs but i'm sure there's still some that they're working on now finally some people are saying they're not seeing picture in picture for youtube and that's true because youtube kind of

Removed that in fact they want you to use a premium account and you can sort of use it with safari if you're signed in so i think this will be coming in the future to the youtube app with a premium account only and that makes sense that's kind of what they do on other platforms such as android so that seems to make more sense to me but quite a few people are seeing lag and i think that's the number one complaint lag and heat seem to be a big issue for a lot of people now the final issue i'm

Seeing regularly with my ipad on ios 14.2 or ipad os 14.2 is when i plug it in it doesn't seem to want to charge right away i actually had to hard reboot it in order to get it to charge so there's definitely some weird bugs going on and of course if you have the beta make sure to submit that in feedback now the overall experience with the battery varies greatly depending on who you ask in fact with ios 14 some people are saying that battery life in general is much better than ios 13.7 or previous versions of ios 13. so

It really depends who you ask others are saying that it's worse and then ios 14.2 really hasn't been out long enough to determine that for ourselves so if we go into our settings and take a look at battery you'll see my battery health is at 95 percent this is pretty good after about a year of time at this point and over the last 10 days you can see my usage varies greatly depending which day it was but here's the last day i was on ios 14 and you'll see i had 5 hours and 30 minutes of screen on time

6 hours and 26 minutes of screen off time and almost 75 of my battery was used that day so that's actually pretty good it's not great but 10 to 12 hours on an 11 pro max is normal if we take a look at well yesterday with ios 14.2 i'm getting about the same four hours and 49 minutes of screen on time four hours of screen off time so it really depends on how you're using your device i think i have some apps going on in the

Background i've been on twitter quite a bit so that may really affect it but depending on who you are is going to depend on how your battery is how you use it what temperature you're in all of this makes a big difference now before we take a look at the youtube community poll should you update to ios 14 i would say absolutely if you haven't already it fixes a huge amount of bugs that people were having with ios 13. it's a huge leap over what ios 13 was like to begin with ios 13 was terrible until about ios 13.4

And then it was more stable i would say we're about right there with ios 14. so i really don't think it's a big risk going to that and battery life seems to be stable for most people but it really will vary depending on what you're using so if you have critical apps that you need to have using i would expect updates if they're not out already but maybe give it a week or two for a minimal update that they'll push out i'm sure at some point plus ios 14.2 was a bit of a surprise so maybe we'll see ios 14.1 this coming week

It's really hard to say because apple's kind of doing some random things these days so i'm hoping to see ios 14.1 within a week or two whether or not it'll be a beta is hard to say but it seems likely that it won't be and then ios 14.2 could push out with iphone 12 or maybe they're waiting for ios 14.1 for iphone 12. we really don't know at this point and it's really up in the air hopefully apple gives us a little bit of a heads up as to what they're doing this time

Because it's not what they promised with ios 14 as far as stability and making sure it's really rock solid now before we take a look at the youtube community poll here are all of the different issues mentioned quite a few people mention battery both good and bad and then also here are all the different devices that you're using on this particular youtube community poll so quite a few of you commented so let's take a look so if we go into the poll you'll see that over 14 000 of you voted which is a huge number

And there's over 600 comments at this time there's 616 comments so a lot of the data that i've been talking about is based off what you had to say here so 62 percent of you said that it was great only 3 said terrible 22 said okay but some bugs and four percent are using the new beta and ten percent haven't updated to either one of them let's take a look at some of the comments h a l w g five one said iphone 10r normally i dismiss all the negative battery life comments but this time i've

Seen faster battery drain i wonder if it's due to the widgets has anyone tested this i put several widgets on my phone and the battery does not drain faster any thoughts about this i'm using an iphone se 2020 after updating to ios 14 battery life extended battery life's quick drain stopped the phone doesn't heat some cases notification issues appear otherwise it's fine i love it i love apple nico says i love it so far on my iphone 7 plus but it's missing

Some features which is okay i guess for a four-year-old phone but at least they should have given us the selfie mirror feature and changing the resolution of the camera within the camera app dylan johnson says no picture in picture on youtube that's so dumb i agree but unfortunately youtube would have to give you access via their app and they're probably not going to do it unless you're a premium subscriber so i wouldn't look for that anytime soon akil g says i'm using an iphone se first generation

It is awesome on my device smooth performance battery life is good i like ios 14 than previous versions samuel perez says i'm using an iphone 8 plus no problems for me jeremiah tom says i'm using my iphone 10 running ios 14 it's excellent and it's really fast kyle says or kylie says everything has been great so far the only problem is my spatial audio on airpods pro doesn't seem to be working at all i upgraded them and everything and when i watch apple tv movies the toggle switch says that it's on but

I'm not experiencing it at all the actual movie has to support it as well so there are some if you purchase them from itunes they should actually be working but not all of them are mohamed bilal softar said hey aaron using ios 14 on my iphone 7 plus for the first day there were some glitches and hang ups especially when unlocking the phone other than that butter smooth waiting for different third-party apps love your videos thank you ellis patel says i'm using iphone 11 pro

Max but still apple needs to work on battery performance and performance sometimes when you watch a movie on safari web browser it freezes jessica c says it's great battery is excellent app store doesn't work today though i'll read a couple more nikki says it's running perfectly fine on my iphone 7 so far battery life is amazing and is no longer draining overnight and performance and animations are super smooth and stable i haven't found any bugs at all so far i love ios 14 so far we'll read the last

Two here they commented first and ahmed a tamimi says i'm on iphone 11 and ios 14 is great all around and then joey brindle said some apps i click on and and try scrolling through it just kicks me off and so those apps hopefully will be updated fairly soon and so that's it for ios 14. i hope to see some great updates from apple like i said ios 14.1 is nowhere to be found yet so hopefully we see that fairly soon and then also some app updates and maybe some fixes for things like widgets and

The lagging and overheating issues that some people are experiencing but let me know what you think apple will do with ios 14.1 in the comments below will it come out with io or iphone 12 or do you think that's what ios 14.2 is for and maybe we'll see ios 14.1 this coming week hopefully apple gives us a little bit of an update on that and then they slow down the app update rollouts as they stabilize unlike they did with ios 13. but again let me know what you think in the comments below if you'd like to get

Your hands on this wallpaper of course i'll link it in the description like i normally do and let me know what you think of filming outside like this is the wind too much let me know what you think overall i just thought i'd do something a little bit different if you haven't subscribed already please subscribe and if you enjoyed the video please give it a like as always thanks for watching this is aaron i'll see you next time
