iOS-14 features and its supportable devices

The iOS-14 was officially launched at WWDC20 on July 22nd, 2020. They bring their brand new feature along with some common features of Android. Some rumors are there, Apple simply copying the Android features. Why do people think like that? The iOS-14 has widgets and this is the reason why they say so.

The iOS-14 beta version is running all over the world now. If you want to be an Apple Beta Software Tester, here you can go through.

iOS-14 features

Firstly, I want to make it clear that every brand new Operating System must have bugs at the beginning. The developers get to know that through Beta users and make the OS stable for everyone.

The iOS-14 too have some bugs. So If you are a Beta user, give the proper feedback to the developers. So that they can reduce the bugs in the stable version of iOS-14.

Widgets-

They place widgets on the iPhone now. Widgets are one of the main differences between Android and Apple. For the sake of user-friendly accessibility, Apple provides this feature. Even the widget features came from Android, Apple doesn’t lose its uniqueness by featuring multiple apps in a single widget. The widget size is of three types.

  • The small widget is in square shape.
  • The medium widget is in a rectangular shape.
  • A large widget looks like a mini tab.

Multitasking

Multitasking is the required feature for all of us now. Up to iOS-13, the Apple users are switching the tabs for multi-tasking. But iOS-14 brings the solution to this problem. You can now access multiple tabs on a single screen. Gaming lovers require this feature a lot while playing PUBG mobile.

App libraries

The new page coming with this version is App libraries. Here the list of apps you can customize easily. The library shows different categories like social, shopping, entertainment, browsing, etc, in one place. So, easily accessible takes place.

Back-tap feature

We can say that this is a brand new feature from Apple. We can double-tap or triple-tap the backside of the phone to do specific functions. But this feature is annoying when we place our phone on the floor or table.

Siri customized

You are able to send voice messages with Siri. The What’app and Facebook messenger also have this feature but here the specialty of Siri is we can set the time and message for someone. Siri will take care of its reaching.

Also the problem of opening a full tab while using Siri is no more. Siri shows popup results and makes your work uninterruptible

CarPlay

You can access this feature in your car. You can charge, park, food-delivery access through this feature. CarPlay dashboard gives a suitable interface for your best usage in your car.
