iOS 14 Features
Apple is working on iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 for a long time, and as you know, their main focus is security and stability, you can expect a bug-free experience. Well, no one can provide the fully bug free experience so you may have to tolerate minor bugs. It is acceptable where we are getting various notable features. And here are some new iOS 14 features:
One of the outdated features that we get in iOS 13 and lower version is the home screen. But now with iOS 14, we are allowed to customize our homescreen and also iOS 14 has App Library section. If you have too many apps on your phone, then you have to swipe between tabs to find the app that you want to use. But with App Library, we can easily search for any App or we can look in dedicate App sections.
If you have used an Android phone, then you can easily relate to it. The Widget option is now also available in iOS 14. Although you get the widget on Android, but the iOS 14 widget is just great. You can easily place any widget anywhere in the screen and in any stack size. It also supports Smart Stack.
Smart Stack is a widget that is highly customizable, which allows us to swap between different widgets in a just swipe. Like if you have Music widget but now you want to change to clock widget the just swipe the Music widget, and it will be replaced by clock widget if it is next to Music.
Picture in Picture:
Finally, the Picture in Picture mode is available on iOS. All the features that we discussed until now are already available in Android phones. And so we assume that you may know most of these features. The picture in picture mode allows us to watch videos over apps that we want to use along with watching videos.
Siri also receives a major upgrade which now supports tons of new question. It got a new compact design, and you can use it while doing work on any app and it will not disturb you with its full screen mode.
Apple Translate is a new app that helps to translate languages, and it also works offline. And to get more illustration for bigger sentences, you can use the landscape.
iMessage also got a great buff, and now it comes with many new features such as Pin, Inline messages, mentions and more. Pin allows you to keep your selected chat on top, so you don’t have to search for the important chat. We can also mention anyone in the group chat to dedicate messages.
The iOS 14 comes with many new emojis that you can change as per ages, hairs looks and other types of styles.
Apple Maps also received the update and now comes with some additional countries. The design of the Map is good but limited to only a few countries.
We have been hearing about these features for a long time, and finally, it now supports a BMW car and more will be added soon. We can use CarPlay to open lock and even manager the controls like who can have full access and who can have limited access. It world using NFC and so a car with NFC can get the support very soon.
