What changes with iOS 14?

iOS 14 new

In short, among the main novelties of iOS 14 I report change for the Home Screen with a new design widget and the App Library, a new way to access the App Store with App Clips, news for Messages and more.

Here is a video that concretely shows what changes with iOS 14:

But let's see the news in detail.

widgets

Finally the widgets arrive on iOS and are available in various sizes. They are accessible through the "Today" view, but can also be dragged to the main screen. Apps move away automatically to make room for widgets.

The new widgets show essential information at a glance and can be fixed, in different sizes, on any page of the Home Screen. Users can create oneSmart Stack of widgets, which uses the intelligence integrated in the device to make the right widget appear based on time, place and activity. The Home Screen pages can showcustom widgetsfor work, travel, sport, leisure and other interests.

At the end of the pages you will find thereApp Library, a new space that automatically organizes all apps in one easy and intuitive view and that brings up what you think is most useful to you at that time. Finally it is not necessary to keep all the icons in the home screen view. You can choose how many pages of the Home Screen to display, but also hide them for faster access to the App Library.

New interface for calls

Traditional and FaceTime calls and interactions with Siri have a new compact design which allows the user not to lose sight of what he was doing before receiving a call.

Picture-in-picture

With the support Picture-in-PictureiPhone users can now watch a video or answer a FaceTime call while continuing to use another app.

Concretely, YouTube videos or maybe Netflix videosthey can be reduced in a sort of floating window, with the possibility of deciding their size and positioning on the interface. In short, yet another step towards a more multitasking concept.

Clips app

Great news: now possible try the apps without downloading them.

App Clips will also be useful when you are in an application that will ask us to open a second app not installed on the iPhone: in that case a pop up of App Clips will appear which make the application available without having to install anything.

Updates for conversations in Messages

With the Messages app it is now easier to stay in touch and quickly access important messages. Users can set conversations at the top in the message list, keep up with group threads thanks to built-in mentions and responses, is customize conversations setting a group photo with an image or unemoji.

Apple reports that the new Memoji options in Messages they are more inclusive and diverse, with a new set of hairstyles, hats, face protectors and more.

Green shifts and new guides in Maps

With Map easier to navigate and explore thanks to new directions for icyclists, itineraries forelectric vehicles isCurated city guides.

Directions for cyclists they take into account altitude, traffic and the presence of stairways along the way.

The itineraries for electric vehicles include charging stations along the way based on vehicle charging level and charging types.

City guides they offer a curated list of interesting places to visit, created from a selection of reliable resources. The Guides allow you to discover new restaurants or attractions and are useful for testing the recommendations of the most famous brands, including AllTrails, Complex, The Infatuation, TimeOut and The Washington Post.

Optimized privacy features

All apps will now need to get user authorization before starting tracking.

In addition, in the coming months the product pages on the App Store will include a summary of the privacy policies declared by the developers, in a simple and intuitive format (like a nutritional table).

Users will also be able to update their account at Sign in with Apple, choose to share with developers only their approximate rather than exact location, and take advantage of greater transparency about the use of the microphone and camera by the apps.

Siri

Apple takes care of its voice assistant: it changes the user interface, with a colored sphere that appears at the bottom when Hey, Siri is pronounced.

Additionally Apple has worked for further improve Siri's understanding of language and general functionality.

The car keys that include CarPlay they become totally digital through iPhones. It will therefore be possible to open the car and start it directly from the smartphone (as soon as it is placed on the vehicle's wireless charging system), in complete safety, without the danger of being able to lose the physical keys as often happens.
