iOS 14 Latest Updates

In June 2020, Apple came with some big announcements for the latest iOS version, i.e., iOS 14 (iOS 14 Latest Updates). It is all set for all of us to release this fall. Isn’t it amazing?  

As per my research, this is one of the huge updates of iOS till date. It is going to update all features including Siri, home screen designs, Widgets, all new processes, and many more tweaks for the iOS interface.    

Let’s Dive In

Firstly, we will talk about the New Home Screen. To my surprise, it includes support for widgets which I had never thought for.    

Widgets on the Home Screen can be dragged from today, and it can be open to various sizes. The latest widgets can have more data and in all-new sizes as well and can be pulled right off the Today view. 

And its’ not all about Widgets. Siri’s has been improved well and as per the news a full-screen takeover that will become a past.

So, when I trigger Siri in iOS 14, it will show the Siri “blob” at the bottom of my display, and with a rich notification at the top of your screen.   

With all-new development, great news for all Apple fans there, Apple’s focus on India Store. Yes, it’s true.

Apples’ Processor

Till the date, as we know, Apple tied with Intel for the processor. Still, now as per the news, Apple iOS is switching to its Processor (Apple Silicon) for iMAC as a precisely suitable scalable architecture.      

As per the humour, vouch the minimization of data to be taken for practice to be gathered locally.    

It may add a camera, more location, and mic privacy controls, stricter Safari cookie tracking controls, and greater transparency by showing an app’s full privacy credentials directly on the App Store, which you can see before you download it.          

Apples’  Dedicated Map View For Cycling And Ev Users

The most significant update for users who are cycling and for Ev users as well, Apple Maps are far improved for new cycling-specific navigation, among other significant things.     

Apples’ map will help to alert you to increases in elevation as well as a notification if you’ll need to carry it upstairs to get where you’re going.                  

As per the statement of Craig Federighi, “rather than using Apple ID, Apple uses Siri as a random.” And that’s just great for all users.
