See Details and new functions of the new iOS 14 announced at WWDC
It was already expected that the new iOS would be launched at WWDC 2020, as it has been in recent years, and Apple keeps its promise and brings another major update to its operating system.
Rumors that iOS would have its name changed to iPhoneOS are already completely wrong. The name remains the same as much of the system, but new features have been added to help improve the user experience.
What’s new in iOS 14
Undoubtedly, two of the biggest news in the last system update are the possibility of customizing the application menu and being able to watch Overlay videos about other applications and the main menu, something that the Android competition has had for some years and was well requested.
Watching Overlay Videos
The first novelty that we will talk about is the possibility of watching videos in Overlay, the function allows you to minimize a video, series, film or TV show to a small window on the screen and watch it while using other functions of the phone, such as sending a message or read an article on the web.
The question remains which applications will or will not support this function, and what will be the behavior of YouTube in relation to this, since the application forces users to subscribe to YouTube Premium to have the function in Android Smartphones .
Now you can add Widgets directly to your main screens, there are several sizes that can be selected and even more than one widget occupying the same position, thus maintaining a cleaner appearance on the screen.
If you use the Smart Widget, the widget that will appear on your screen will change as the hours of the day pass, so you can have the most useful information in your day-to-day life without having to make any changes to your screen.
App Library and Home Screen Customization
Now it will no longer be necessary to have several application pages and remember where each application is located in your iPhone’s Home Screen menus, in the last screen on the right there will be the App Library that has all of its applications separated into their categories.
In addition, you can also remove screens from the menu that you no longer want to see. To access applications that have been recently opened, there will be a menu at the top right of the App Library, and at the top left you will find the applications currently recommended for you, using AI technology to decide which Apps should be recommended.
The latest big news are the App Clips, small and small versions designed for quick use when you need it, for example when you are buying some food and you don’t have the restaurant application to make the purchase.
Applications will have a maximum of 10 MegaBytes in size, will offer the option of installing the complete application directly through Clips and will use Apple’s own Login, without the need to register at the time, which in some cases end up taking a while.
