iOS 14 beta performance

After five days using iOS 14, I have to say it feels surprisingly stable. iOS 12 beta was so unusable on my device that I decided to skip iOS 13 beta altogether.

As always, the general advice is to not install it on your primary device. But if you still want to proceed, here are some common issues I have seen for the past few days:

  • Animations skipping frames. Especially when opening and closing apps.
  • Random overheating. I had to restart the device to resolve.
  • Battery will drain very quickly for the first day following installation, presumably for search indexing.

Most apps seem to work fine for me, but some will be pretty annoying with the occasional clipboard access notifications.
