Apple announced at its Apple Event when the update to iOS 14 will roll out. On the same day, Cupertino will also provide various Apple Watch and iPad models with major updates. The manufacturer provides a novelty.
Apple is already making the stable version of iOS 14 available for download today. The company revealed this at the Apple event, where it presented the Apple Watch Series 6 and new iPads, among other things. However, Apple did not give an exact time. You don’t have to look all day to see whether the update (“Settings | General | Software update”) is already available. We are relatively sure that the update for your iPhones should be available from 7 p.m.

2020 is a unique year
At that time, Apple usually rolls out its iOS updates. But what is normal in 2020? For the first time in the company’s history, there was a major software update before the company launched a new iPhone. In the past, Apple had already presented its new smartphones and released a new iOS version around the market launch of the devices. The clock rate at which Apple last released the test versions of iOS 14 already indicated that it would be different this year.
The novelty should please those who already own an iPhone. You don’t have to wait for the keynote at which Apple will introduce the iPhone 12; which will presumably be in October. Instead, you can use the new functions and improvements now. The update to iOS 14 will be given to all Apple phones for which iOS 13 is also available. So Apple also supplies somewhat older devices.
