WWDC 2020: What Is WWDC?
Apple Gives Out The New iOS 14 Update!: The Worldwide Developers Conference i-e the WWDC is a convention held by Apple to showcase its creations to the developers.
The convention is annual at McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose, California. But, this year, due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic, the event shifted to a virtual conference live-streamed on Apple’s website and YouTube.
One of the massive changes we are going to see is the iOS 14 update. Let us get into the details about WWDC 2020.
WWDC 2020: iOS 14 Features
iOS 14 introduces us to the concept of having a widget gallery, customizable home screen, and connecting messages. Yesterday, Apple introduced its most significant update ever. Let us get into the features of iOS 14.
- Apple is introducing its beautifully redesigned widgets in the app library. In this new update, you will be able to remove apps from your home screens and even eliminate the entire screens.
- The new app library is just one swipe away from your home button. All your apps are going to be stored and sorted there according to their relevance.
- Traditionally, widgets have been available on iOS for a long time. You just had to swipe left from the home screen. Now, with iOS 14, the widgets will have a new experience of being sizable, and you can even shift them from Today View to your home screen.
- Siri’s full-screen takeover is going to be old news now because in iOS 14, when you press the home button, a Siri blob will appear, and it won’t take the full screen.
- The picture in picture mode is coming in iOS 14. It means you can use your phone while face-timing or when you are watching a video. The video minimizes, which gives you a chance to use your phone.
