At the Worldwide Developers Conference held in June, Apple previewed upgrades for the next version of its mobile operating software, iOS 14. Users from all around the world took note of the same and waited in excitement for things to get processed further. The upgrade will be released later this year, and you can witness different kinds of changes that are going to convert the way you used the operating system. But you need to wait to know what’s going to happen because we are going to tell you about some of the most significant upgrades that are going to take place.
IPhone’s widgets have always been relegated to the Today View on the left of the main screen. But now you can pull these widgets out and into your home screen. As a result, you will be able to customize how your phone looks by providing access to quickly use certain functions, switch music tracks with the widget and so on. If you wish to see all the widgets, then you need to head to the Widget Library.
2. App Library
With iOS 14, you can hide pages of apps that you don’t use often, and with a simple scroll to the right, you can also access your new App Library. This particular move marks a new beginning since the iPhone home screen had a grid of app icons that tend to go on for pages and pages. The latest update is quite similar to the ones seen on Android phones with categories being the only difference.
A new version of Siri is also ready to greet you without taking your whole screen each time you ask a question. The new Siri will appear in the form of a small bubble at the bottom, and when you ask for something, it will display a pop-up notification at the top of the screen. Apart from that, Siri can also access information from across the web (within a particular limit) and send the same through audio messages in the Messages app.
The Messages app is getting a long list of updates. Yes, that’s right. You can now pin essential conversions at the top of the app, you reply incline to specific messages and view the same as a separate thread, type in someone’s name to “mention’ someone (similar to @ function) and so on. Thanks to the latter feature, you can enable conversations to send you a notification only when you have been mentioned.
Apart from the upgrades mentioned above, Apple is going to hit you with a lot more. So stay tuned and control your excitement because iOS 14 is coming soon.
