What are the latest iOS 14 features that you need to know?

iOS was released on September 16th, 2020

App Library

iOS 14 adds a new view of the App Library to arrange all of the applications. Apps are conveniently grouped in the App Library, and you don’t have to keep all the icons on the real home screen display. There is also a new view of the list as well as tools for grouping programs depending on use and more.

Widgets

For the first time, iOS 14 adds icons to the iPhone and iPad home screen. Widgets are more data-rich than ever before and come in a range of sizes. Apps switch out of the way to make room for widgets automatically. You can view these widgets via the “Widget Gallery” with several different size choices.

Picture in Picture on iPhone

iOS 14 also offers image support, functions very close to the iPad experience. Meanwhile, Siri has a new user interface that doesn’t overwhelm the whole computer.

Translate App

The new iOS 14 Translate app is designed for conversation and functions fully offline. What you need to do is press the microphone icon and translate the app into your preferred language. At launch, 11 languages will be supported.

App Clips

iOS 14 also adds a new App Clip feature that helps you to easily navigate apps without installing the entire update from the App Store.

iMessage Features

Apple is introducing new Memoji accessories as well as pinned notes to iMessage. New functionality for the iMessages community as well: in-line responses, references.

Real-Time Headphone Audio Alerts

You can test the audio quality of your headset in real-time with a new option in the Control Center. This latest feature has a similar interface to the Apple Watch Noise software, which monitors the environment’s audio volumes instead of the headphones.

QR code payments

This detail was not revealed at WWDC, but it’s likely that it won’t be introduced with the first edition of iOS 14 and will be released later in the year.

Leaked passwords

Leaked passwords are where you use the same password for several websites and one of them is compromised. The iCloud keychain will be installed in to alert you to leaked passwords.

Voice Memos

Apple is now upgrading the Voice Memos app on iPhone and macOS Big Sur. The latest Enhance Recording feature is the most thrilling feature this year. Enhance Recording eliminates sound noise and space reverberation with a single touch. If you make a recording, you can see a tiny icon close to the Auto Change function of the Images app. The particulars of exactly how this function operates remain vague, but the simplicity of the mechanism is actively advocated by Apple.
