If you're unfamiliar, iOS 14 public beta 2 can be downloaded on your iPhone via a profile that is installed from Apple's Public Beta website. The update is available over the air so it won't be an issue if you're already on iOS 14. However, iOS 14 is crawling with bugs at this stage since it is in the beta phase. Hence, it would be wise to not install it on your primary device as of now.
