Today, public beta versions of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are on the market and provide a laundry list of new features, including the biggest changes to the iOS home screen over the years.
Those who are not enrolled in Apple's developer program will be the first chance to try out a new operating system that will appear in its final form at the end of this summer. General warnings about beta release apply. It is very likely that bugs or defects will occur while Apple is still ironing. So, if you have a huge problem, make sure your device is backed up. Wait for the final release).
You will notice that Apple has redesigned the iOS home screen. Now, in addition to apps, you can add and customize various "widgets" and there is a new "app library" view that automatically organizes your programs. Groups and lists-a concept similar to Android's app drawer.
Siri has undergone modifications to both systems. There's a new icon at the bottom of the iOS interface that pops up without turning over the entire screen, and now you can send a voice message instead of instructing it.
There are numerous improvements. It's an easy-to-use system for people with disabilities, including a new sound recognition feature that tells your phone to hear and hear various sounds (siren, doorbell, etc.).
Elsewhere, Apple is adding system-wide PIP functionality to iOS video and FaceTime calls. There is a new "App Clip" feature that allows you to install a snippet version of the app if you only need to access some features (e.g., the store's reward program). Finally, you can set third-party email services and browsers as defaults. There are new translation apps similar to Google Translate, and some new features, including emoticons with face masks and messages that support conversational conversations in group chats. The map provides biking and locating features for electric bikes. The Home app now supports face recognition for Homekit-enabled security cameras and adaptive lighting for smart light bulbs. Safari comes with a version of the Chrome Password Notification feature. Seriously, there are many other things, and what matters most to you depends on how you use your phone.
iPadOS has not seen a huge change. It focuses on improving the user experience and improving the app design on large screens. Some apps like photos and music have a new sidebar, and the calendar has more controls at the top of the screen. Apple also added a new search engine called Universal Search to fetch apps, contacts, or documents. A feature called Scribble converts handwriting written in Apple Pencil into typed text.
iPadOS borrows some of the features available in iOS 14, including third-party native apps, groups in iMessage, and bike directions. You can also set third-party defaults on iPad.
