Apple at its annual event launched various products including the Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE, iPad Air as well as the 8th generation of iPad. The Cupertino-based tech giant also rolled new iOS 14 on September 16.
The iOS 14 as a free software update to iPhone 6s and later, delivering a major push to the Home Screen with beautifully redesigned widgets and the App Library, new ways to use apps with App Clips, and powerful updates to Messages. New widgets present timely information at a glance and can be added in different sizes on any Home Screen page.
Users can choose a Smart Stack of widgets, which uses on-device intelligence to surface the right widget based on time, location, and activity. At the end of the Home Screen pages is the App Library that makes it easier for users to get to all of their apps with a simple, easy-to-navigate view. With Picture-in-Picture support, iPhone users can now watch a video or take a FaceTime call while using another app.
The good news is if you’ve ever installed a software update on your iPhone you’ll feel right at home installing iOS 14. It installs just like any other software update.
