So iOS 14 has finally
been revealed at WWDC 2020 and we have listed all the features that would be
present in the software.
One news that we are most excited about is that Apple is bringing widgets to the home screen on its devices. Widgets are available in different sizes and right now, you can see them in the Today view. In iOS 14, however, the widget is present on the main screen and lives right alongside other applications. Apple has created a widget gallery on the screen and that will allow you to customize them according to your wish.
A new “App Library” has also been added to the update and this means your apps will automatically be organized into groups and lists. With the new view, all your applications would not be on display and would instead be secure in a folder present on the home screen. It is quite similar to the app drawer that Android launched earlier.
The new system-wide picture-in-picture feature has also been making headlines in the tech world as this is something a lot of people were expecting from Apple. Just like macOS, you will now be able to stream videos while carrying out other operations on your phones.
Siri also contains a new view on iOS 14. Right now, Siri takes over your entire screen when you activate the assistant but with the new update, a small overlay at the bottom of the display will be enough to activate Siri. The digital assistant can also send audio messages along with dictated messages now.
Apple has also introduced a new Translation application just like Google Translate. So now if you type in a message, you will be able to translate them into 11 languages namely English, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Portuguese and Russian.
iOS 14 will be launched in the fall and we are all desperately waiting on the new updates as this time, Apple has worked really hard to make the operations of the software smooth for the users. The update will work on the iPhone6S and up.
