Leaked new iOS 14 features to expect on release date
The iOS 13 update was riddled with bugs to an extent that longtime Apple fans noticed and complained about it numerous times, all thanks to a software testing procedure inherited from older times.
The new system is already employed in Apple's next iOS 14 edition development, codenamed "Azul," as it is expected to be one of the most feature-rich software upgrades in Apple's history - you know, the first 5G iPhone and stuff - so Apple wouldn't want a repeat of the iOS 13 rollout fiasco.
In fact, Apple is now so adamant to focus on the quality of the new software features it releases, tipped insiders, that it is considering putting some of those it intended to ship with iOS 14, off for the "Azul+1" project, which will likely end up as iOS 15 in 2021.
Here are the rumored new features that Apple may release with iOS 14 in 2020:
- Homescreen customization with widgets and smart dynamic wallpapers
- Change default apps and partial installation with 'Clips'
- AR Maps
- Offline Siri
- PiP for videos
- Fitness app
- iMessage retraction and typing indicator
- Find My app with AR mode and location triggers
- Blood oxygen levels for Apple Watch
These are just some of the new iOS 14 features that have leaked so far, so there is plenty to look forward to when Apple's virtual WWDC event happens in three weeks or so. That purported "homescreen customization" is the promise that attracts our attention the most, as that's what Apple is notoriously resistant to implementing in iOS, so we can't wait to see if that particular feature rumor pans out in the end.
