On September 16, 2020, Apple released version 14 of both iOS and iPadOS, along with updated versions of tvOS and watch OS. Today, Information Systems & Computing (ISC) approved iOS and iPadOS 14.0.1 for general use.
ISC and other Penn constituents have tested iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 extensively. They have not discovered any compatibility issues with various University systems and many current University apps, including the apps and services listed here:

  • Duo Mobile
  • LastPass
  • PennO365 and associated apps
  • Gmail
  • Penn+Box
  • Dropbox
  • BlueJeans
  • Zoom
  • Vonage Enterprise
  • PennMobile
  • Canvas
  • Slack
  • Workday
  • RDP
  • AirPennNet

The iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 upgrades should not affect any data on the device being upgraded. Still, as with any operating system change, ISC strongly recommends performing a backup before upgrading. ISC also recommends connecting devices to a power source for the duration of the upgrade process. Lastly, ISC recommends updating all apps via the App Store before upgrading to iOS 14 or iPadOS 14.
