iOS 14 Beta 8 Follow Up Review

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

Hi everyone aaron here for zollotech and ios 14 beta 8 has been out a few days it's actually very close to i think a final release i'll talk about a little bit later as well as the gm and i've been using it on my iphone 11 pro max this is my main phone i also use it daily on my 2020 ipad pro 12.9 and then i also have it on the iphone 11 6s plus and iphone 7. and so let's talk about how my experience was how your experience was based off the youtube community poll performance battery life bugs and more

So the first thing is i've experienced two issues one of them was right before this video in fact i went into settings and it completely froze i couldn't do anything it wouldn't scroll that's the first time i've seen that but it took a few days to show up the other thing i've had is i've had twitter freeze on me a couple times so i'd go into it maybe go to messages or whatever i was doing it would completely freeze now that could be a problem with the app or it could be a problem with the phone

Itself with this particular beta most of the time it doesn't do that those are the only two times i've actually seen that other than that i've had zero bugs with this in fact i've had no issues i've had great speed and everything else so i haven't had any issues and quite a few of you said it runs like a gm or a final version and so for those of you that aren't familiar a gm or golden master is the final version that's released to beta testers prior to it being released to the public

And like i said we'll talk more about that in a little bit now other than the people that are saying they're not having problems a few people were mentioning some odd problems such as flickering displays now it doesn't seem to matter which device it was on it could be any of these really but they were seeing flickering displays and some people were experiencing other issues with the news widget not showing up for example so if you deleted the news app and then reinstalled the news app it

Seems like the news widget just wouldn't show up again it wouldn't be there so hopefully they'll fix that pretty soon now some other people were actually saying that they were having connectivity issues so maybe it's with wi-fi or lte usually it's with lte it seems like there's more people talking about that so if you're having connectivity issues hopefully there'll be a modem update that fixes this by the time it's released to the public so hopefully we'll see that now other

People are saying that they're experiencing the keyboard freezing so if you were in the keyboard for example and typing it just wasn't working i personally haven't seen this but i know quite a few people that have said they have also some people are saying they're having face id issues so for example when you go into face id it would present a problem whether or not that means it just doesn't unlock or maybe it's because you're using a mask and it's not seeing you properly so that makes sense usually

It won't work with a mask unless it's really thin otherwise you'll have to put in your passcode but most of the time people aren't having issues with face id but a few are other people are seeing issues with notifications so notifications coming in are not working for some people and they seem to be working okay for me but they're saying they're showing up late or not showing up at all so i'm seeing this multiple times throughout the comments on the community

Poll and then finally people are reporting issues with battery as well as charging issues now battery life for me has been okay if we take a look at the settings here we'll go down to battery and you'll see my battery health is still at 96 percent and let's go over to the last 10 days so if we take a look at yesterday i used 50 percent of my battery and i got four hours and five minutes of screen on time 6 hours and 4 minutes of screen off time

So it's actually doing pretty well the odd thing is it says nest audio and i wasn't using nest so that's kind of interesting i'm not sure why it's there maybe it didn't close in the background like it should have but that's kind of strange that it was actually saying that so there's definitely some issues with this although four and a half hours of screen on time and six hours of screen off time with fifty percent battery usage is actually quite good for a beta so nine or ten hours 10 to 12 is normal like i've said many times so i hope to

See this improved in the future now the other people that were having issues were having issues with this actually charging so either wasn't charging properly or it would stop at 80 percent similar to what optimized battery charging would do but it wouldn't function properly and so hopefully this will be fixed soon i think apple's just really fixing those additional bugs before they release it to the public but it seems like they'll hopefully get that nailed down

Pretty quickly now performance overall on the newer phones is fine and the same is true of older phones so performance on older phones such as the 6s plus here seem to be fine it's smooth just like you would expect in fact don't expect it to be slower than ios 13 for example you'll see it's just loading through wi-fi there let's scroll and you'll see scrolling is okay it's fine it's completely usable no issues here

So if we go to settings i haven't had any freezing on this device either and then the iphone 11 which is actually the device most of you are using and i'll talk about that with the statistics in a moment but this device is nice and fast no issues here whatsoever it feels like you're using an 11 pro max so no issues with performance and most of you have said the same thing other than the few that we're saying was freezing now as far as ipad os well my ipad honestly i've had zero

Problems with with ipad os beta 8. in fact it's been incredibly stable zero problems zero freezing zero lag and 4k youtube and everything is working just fine now that's up to youtube whether or not they enable it it seems to be working just fine i've never had any issues you'll see how smooth and fast it is with this 120 hertz display no issues whatsoever so if you have anything from an iphone 7 to the latest 11 pro max performance should be pretty good now should you install ios 14 beta 8

Well i would say if you haven't already you definitely should it's better than the other betas by far in my opinion it's as stable as can be and we're very close to a gm or golden master version like i mentioned earlier so based off today here you'll see i record these a little ahead of time but based off today i would say that apple is going to release the gm after the apple event on tuesday so on the 15th expect the gold master or golden master

And then probably the week of the 20th we'll see the final release usually that's on a friday when they do that or thursday but they could release it earlier in the week if my memory serves me correctly it may have been earlier in the week but either way it will be released to the public probably in this week and then we'll see ios 14.1 maybe later on some people have said that that will come out once the iphone 12

Launches so whether or not we see a launch at this week's event is hard to say but i just can't wait to see what we have at that event now here are all the different issues that people have mentioned based off the youtube community poll so quite a few people mentioning battery whether that's good or bad people are saying ram management is good most people are saying freezing or lag and a few people were having notification issues with mail like i said before just notifications in

General also now here are all the devices you're using based off the poll now iphone 11 is the number one used device it seems based off the community poll so it makes sense it's the least expensive newest device so if you want to see more of that in the videos let me know in the comments below now let's take a look at the youtube community poll now at the time of this video you can see there's 11 000 votes which is pretty incredible i think and 318 comments where i got all the

Information from before forty percent of you said it was great three percent said it was terrible nine percent said okay but some bugs and 48 percent of you have not upgraded yet so i think it's getting a little bit better if we look at the previous poll go back to beta seven you'll see still three percent said terrible but only nine percent verse 11 this time said it had bugs 40 are saying it's great so i think overall this one is actually doing pretty well now let's take a look at

Some of the comments bruce hemer says using an iphone 8 plus running ios 14 beta 8 the phone app crashes devised a workaround by calling from either the contacts app or imessage app but direct dial is unavailable because it lies within the phone app make sure you report that to the feedback app of course if others are having this it's a major bug thankfully you're the only one i've heard of having it so maybe a reboot would fix it i'm not sure but hopefully it's not a major issue within

The os angel or angel valera says iphone 11 pro max everything runs well battery is excellent however having connectivity issues sometimes web pages just hang then three to four seconds later load in other cases even with full bars nothing loads at all on verizon and thanks for the great video gerdeep singh says iphone 10 performance stability and battery are great on this beta william100 said battery in my 8 plus is draining a little too quick still otherwise i really like it christopher

Rodriguez says performing great on my iphone 11. armin alexandrian said no real complaints iphone 11 pro max smooth and snappy raj f menon says running it on my iphone sc first gen performance is smooth overall and battery life has definitely improved the only issue i'm facing right now is that the app library stutters when scrolling this problem has persisted ever since public beta 3 for me not sure if it's ever going to be fixed lp photography said it's doing great on

My 6s brian seuss says still having issues with my news widget not showing up on my 11 pro max tricky said my iphone 10r is running smooth on ios 14 beta 8 and the same goes for the ipad 7 on ipad os 14 beta 8. can't wait for the gm master savage said ios 14 has to be the best beta of all of them no annoying bugs i have ios 14 beta 8 and my iphone 11 pro max it is an absolutely amazing software and i'm looking forward to the gm

Broly said iphone 6s here seems like my phone is getting hotter more often than it was on ios 13.7 i've encountered a few ui glitches and one bug i've had in particular is not being able to enable availability alerts for exposure notifications it says location services is off when it's all turned on i've reported it reported any bugs i've found in the feedback app though that is actually related directly to whether or not you have an app in your in your area or location if you do it

Should be available if not it won't be available codegeek said it's running smoothly on my ipod touch 7th gen with no issues thank you for saying all the features on these betas and thank you for watching teacher york says ios beta 8 on my iphone 8 plus has been really smooth only my battery tends to drain slightly quicker than usual and i haven't seen any degrade in my battery health from ninety percent so i know it's a software problem thank you nikitesh moses says i'm using an iphone 10r

I have issues with the music it's not running in the background with some apps and some third-party apps also not working which is working with my other se with ios 13.7 rajco says higher and there is still an annoying bug with a clock widget and brightness on the control center the big difference compared to beta 7 in terms of speed and stability we will still maybe have another beta and this one is almost like a gm we'll see rem's rhythm says really good on my iphone 10 back tap works a lot better now and

Battery life has improved still not at ios 13 level but getting there alvin says battery performance has been markedly improved notice some lag between cellular and wi-fi swapa and vice versa although modem firmware has been the same in the last three betas let's wait for the gm candidate hopefully coming next week jaime garcia says some visual bugs for me but they go as soon as you swipe the page everything else is fine

Iphone 11. thomas van gorkham says it's doing great on my iphone 10r although battery life isn't the best hopefully they'll fix that soon and then finally lord yt says it's running very smooth on my iphone 7 and i've noticed some improvements for my battery and also the performance so that's it for ios 14 beta 8. again look for a gm hopefully in a few days along with that apple event which i'll have a video updating that on monday talking about everything to expect and

Even more so be sure to check back for that now if you'd like to get your hands on this wallpaper of course i'll link it in the description below and 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 you
