(Fatherland) – iOS 14 is probably the operating system version with many of the biggest improvements ever for their home “Apple bite bad”. See, what are the features Apple brings.
Contrary to the expectations of the “Apple family” fans, the event recently organized by Apple was not about the iPhone 12, but the main character is the new Apple Watch series and two iPad lines including iPad gen 8 and iPad Air.
Notably, near the end of the event Tim Cook has officially announced the new operating system update schedule, including: iOS 14, iPad OS 14, Watch OS 7, and tvOS 14. It is September 16 ( local time), ie September 17 in Vietnam time.
See, iOS 14 has something to look forward to.
App Library and Widgets feature
One of the problems that probably many iPhone users encounter is that there are too many applications spread across the screen layers, leading to difficulties in using.
For many generations ago, Apple has provided a merge feature that allows you to gather essential applications into separate folders according to your preferences. However, it seems that Apple also realizes that this feature is not as useful to the majority of users.
So this time, Apple officially launched an automatic merging feature called App Library, which allows your device to collect applications that have similar features such as entertainment, social networking, and applications. reader, healthcare apps … Whether you like it or not, Apple will do it for you, bringing in the App Library feature on the right-hand corner of the screen.
In theory, this is a feature that is probably useful. However, since it is done automatically, you will sometimes get a little … annoyed if Apple’s arrangement becomes unreasonable.
Users can now choose to bring widgets to the home screen in a customizable way
This is also the first time Apple has allowed users to bring “widgets” (the general term for applications capable of displaying a part, such as clocks, temperature measurement …) on the home screen. You can customize the size, and place widgets anywhere according to your preference. Look at them … just like what Android did a long time ago.
Breakthrough in user interface – Compact UI
Another big improvement that iOS 14 brings is called Compact UI – can be understood as a compact user interface.
The Siri interface is now just an icon that appears, doesn’t force us to switch to a new screen
To explain in a understandable way, each time a call came in (or made a call), you would have to switch to a different interface. Now with Compact UI, the call interface will only take up a small part of the screen only. Similar to the interface when starting Siri.
The iFan have been asking for this feature for a long time now, and Apple has pampered them now.
Not only the Compact UI, but Apple also made some changes to Siri’s system. In particular, Siri Intelligence (the AI technology behind Siri) has been upgraded to better understand commands, as well as remember tasks between interactions with users.
Overall, according to Apple, this will be a smarter Siri, more responsive “20 times faster than three years ago”.
Siri can also handle the translation in Safari through an app called Translate. Users simply paste the text into the app to get an instant translation, or tell Siri to do it for you. The translation out quickly, there is no need to discuss, if there is an accuracy, then … slowly later.
Privacy and security
There are some changes to data sharing in the new iOS. Now when an application requests to access data, camera or microphone, a small banner appears in the corner of the screen. In case the camera or microphone is active, a small dot will also appear in the status bar, with green for the camera and red for the microphone.
In addition, the control center panel will also push a small banner to the corner of the screen, showing the nearest application accessing your microphone or camera.
A really useful mapping application
Apple has its own map app, but probably no one uses it, but instead they choose Google’s maps app.
However, it seems that this year, Apple’s Maps application will have quite useful improvements. The first is the ability to give bike directions – something that has long been in Google Maps, has now been included by Apple.
The second is the ability to navigate the city in a … smarter way. Especially provide what to do when arriving at that location. Initially, the number of cities applied will be relatively limited, but will be updated more gradually.Source: Mac Rumors, Apple Insider
