23 June, Kathmandu:
Apple announced iOS 14 on Monday, the new software that will launch for iPhones in September.
With iOS 14, you are going to introduce entirely new ways to navigate around your iPhone. Based on the changes Apple disclosed during its WWDC 2020 keynote, it sounds like changes are preferable.
With new additions, it is introducing Home screen design changes, major new features, updates for existing apps, Siri improvements, and many more features. You will have fewer screens to navigate through to find the app you need. Widgets will also transform the way your home screen works. It is adding multitasking relevance with a new picture-in-picture feature that lets you keep watching videos while using other apps. It launches in public beta in July before it’s available in the fall.

Here’s a look at some of the biggest changes you will see in iOS 14
Apple is adding widgets to the main home screen, which lie between app icons. You’ll be able to choose large widgets that show the weather, podcasts, photos, the clock, stocks, maps, music and more and can pin them to your screen.
This feature will let you watch videos, including movies and TV shows in the main screen of your phone while using other apps.
The App Library automatically organizes apps for you. You can hide pages you don’t want to use and again, with the App Library, find apps in different categories.
The Messages app is getting a variety of updates, including the facility to pin conversations. Messages will also include “mentions” to improve group chats.
Siri is getting visual improvements. Siri’s interface will undergo changes so that it no longer takes up the full screen when activated.
Now, you can get that information directly within the Maps app. These cycling features are only available for New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and some cities in China for now, but Apple said these will be coming to other cities around the world.
Apple translate is similar to google translate.The update will feature a Translate app, capable of translating speech and text offline in 11 languages.
App Clips are less than 10 megabytes, so they’re not full apps. It will allow you to access some functions of an app that may be needed to access a service.
It will show you what kind of personal information an app will ask for before you use it. So, you’ll know if an app is going to ask for your location and other personal information.
New hair, headwear and face mask options are added for memoji.
Since iOS 14 is officially announced, these features are coming to your iPhone.
