Perhaps the most important factor in determining the length of an iOS 14 update is the iPhone’s Internet speed. If your Internet connection is slow or intermittent, the iOS 14 software update will take longer to download. Fact: iOS 14 software update file is, in most cases, 4.79 GB large.
If your iPhone won’t update to iOS 14, it might mean that your phone is incompatible or doesn’t have enough free memory. You also need to make sure that your iPhone is connected to Wi-Fi, and has enough battery life. You may also need to restart your iPhone and attempt to update again.
iPhone battery problems under iOS 14 — even the latest iOS 14.1 release — continue to cause headaches. The battery drain issue is so bad that it’s noticeable on the Pro Max iPhones with the big batteries.

If you’re willing to put up with occasional bugs and issues, you can install and help test it right now. But should you? My sage advice: Wait until September.
