Don't Install While Traveling or If Your Situation is Fluid

If you are preparing to go on a trip or if you're in the middle of a trip, avoid the iPadOS 14 beta. 

Again, the iPadOS 14 beta has the potential to cause problems on your tablet and that's probably the last thing you want to be dealing with during a vacation or business trip. 

Over the years we've seen travelers complain about apps not working, email breaking, and maps and GPS acting up. Obviously, that's far from ideal.

If you're going to be away from home and away from your backups, we highly recommend waiting until you're back before trying out the beta.

Likewise, if you're still hunkered down at home trying to weather the Coronavirus outbreak, if you're a first responder that uses your tablet, or you're unable to spend time on the tablet if something goes wrong after the update, you should wait to install the beta. 

The last thing you probably want to deal with right now is waiting an hour for an update to install, finding help with Apple Stores closed, or dealing with apps or services that aren't working.

If any of these things concern you, you might want to hold off until we know more about the iPadOS 14 beta's performance.
