Apple is Releasing iOS 14 & iPadOS 14 Updates Today
For the very first time, iOS 14 is introducing widgets to the iPhone home screen that gathers all of your apps into a new App Library and adds picture-in-picture mode. Users will also experience a new translation app.
Furthermore, the users will not be able to put widgets anywhere on the home screen in iPadOS 14, but it does build upon what you can do with the Apple Pencil. Users can “write by hand in any text field across iPadOS, and your words automatically convert to text.” with the new Scribble features of iPadOS 14.
In addition to that, more of Apple’s native apps are adding sidebars. The new update expands menus to take advantage of the iPad’s bigger screen.
The two major updates bring improvements to Messages (such as pinned conversations, mentions, and inline replies), cycling directions in Maps, compact notifications for incoming calls, privacy enhancements, a redesigned Music app, and much more.
