IOS 14 is a good topic of discussion among Apple fans, especially considering how small iOS 13 was during its launch.
And it's that besides offering new functions, such as the popular Mode Mode and the enhanced use of Photos, iOS 13 is bound by a bad line of errors that has led Apple to offer more updates in a shorter timeframe.
In this way, with the advent of iOS 14, Apple aims to fix past errors by introducing new internal methods to help detect and remove errors before it is officially introduced.
But how does that affect the iOS 14 release date? Will Apple sacrifice the existing features of iOS 14 instead of performance improvements, as it did with iOS 12? We'll take you away from all these doubts.
Below, you'll find everything you need to know about iOS 14, including the expected release date, details on the new internal development and a list of all the features we'd like to see presented in iOS 14 when making its creation.
When will iOS 14 be released?
Of course there are still days left, as the iOS 13 version even reached the users' iPhone in the last quarter of last year. Therefore, it will obviously not be until the end of 2020 when the final version is released.
Apple usually keeps the same calendar year after year, so that at the WWDC developer event it unveils a beta for the new version of iOS, and in September when it reaches users that is compatible with new iPhone information.
This year, the official date of the event has not been announced, however according to what was seen years ago, (from June 3 to 7 takes place in 2019), we can never imagine that it might be June 8, 2020 for its regular spring event.
This way and according to previous years, we expect that Apple will launch iOS 14 between September 14 and 18, 2020. Here are the last five days of iOS release:
- IOS 13: Thursday, September 19, 2019
- IOS 12: Monday, September 17, 2018
- IOS 11: Wednesday, September 20, 2017
- 10 10: Tuesday, September 13, 2016
- IOS 9: Wednesday, September 16, 2015
After the WWDC 2020 event took place in the spring, developers began to have early access to the software to ensure that when the new version was distributed, the applications were run and translated to a new version of iOS.
If you wish to access this version in advance, you can sign up with Apple's enthusiastic program to test the software and help report any errors before making the final release.
Early access to iOS 14 in the form of a public Beta, starts a few weeks after the release of the developer version. In this way, the public version of the beta would be arriving about June 29, 2020.
IOS 14: Compatible devices
According to a French publication iPhonesoft, highlighting that you spoke to employees who work at Apple, the iOS 14 version will be compatible with the same iPhone list as the current iOS 13 (though they left the last iPod attached to the list).
This way, the complete list of iOS 14 supported devices will be as follows:
- IPhone 12 (5G) and iPhone 12 Pro (5G)
- IPhone 9 / iPhone SE 2
- IPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max
- IPhone XS Max and iPhone XS
- IPhone XR and iPhone X
- IPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8
- IPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7
- IPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus
- IPhone SE
If the rumors are true, at least it means that the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s will continue to be compatible with the new version.
It should be remembered that the iPhone 6s range made its debut in 2015 and will be five years old when iOS 14 appears, closer to the day Apple stopped supporting the phone. The same thing happened with the iPhone 6 series, which came out in 2014 and lost a revival 5 years later.
Errors and reliability
IOS 13 has a reputation, and it's not good at all. Between the first releases of iOS 13 at the end of September 2019, and the end of December 2019, Apple was forced to release eight updates to address various issues.
Among them, those associated with visual failures, application errors, and even errors associated with the absence of other features are notable. Why? Because iOS 13 didn't go as well as everyone expected and Apple knew.
In fact, the company is so aware of how iOS 13 has come to be that it plans to completely review how it will improve system updates internally. This is confirmed by a report prepared by Bloomberg.
According to this, Apple will introduce products for software in daily iOS versions that will help the company skip the wrong code before it gets into the hands of developers and consumers. A process that is already being used by others like Google and Microsoft.
It is not the first time that Apple has focused on the performance of new features: iOS 12 is introduced with very few changes compared to the previous iOS 11, but it is certainly widely accepted by users.
Characteristic of Desire
It's too early to guess the benefits that iOS 14 will bring every day, but we can look at libraries and concept videos to understand where the gun is going.
We love the idea of a new feature with updated thumbnails and screen functionality It always does for iOS devices with OLED screens. It seems obvious that it will be the next step, especially if in the Android field this is already a reality.
It is a feature that allows you to search for specific information without having to open the terminal, and get important notifications and view them quickly without wasting much energy when you open the terminal.
The conceptual videos aside, we've put together a wish list for our all-time favorite iOS 14. If we missed the feature you missed, you can send us a message via Twitter or let us know.
In the latest version of iOS, when you receive a call on your iPhone, the alert takes over your entire screen, and we've been doing that since the birth of the iPhone in 2007. It's been 13 years and the phones are no longer as important as before
Smartphones have just reached the point where we now use our texting to send, take pictures, record videos, play games and consume multimedia content. So, why should inbound calls get higher attention?
With the change of this method, the user will continue to be informed by telephone but in a way that is not easily accessible and without losing sight of what he is doing with his cell phone, especially in those times when he is in charge.
We would like Apple to review the notification system in iOS 14, because, for the most part, we are not fans of how notifications are distributed. Our biggest problem is that the drop-down menu mimics the screen.
We don't really need the time and date to take a lot of notification, especially when iOS shows up in the top right corner automatically.
The previous design, which offers a transparent drop-down menu with access to notifications, worked much better than a visual one. We also anticipate the group's automatic return of notifications via the app.
Currently, notifications are displayed in the order they were received. It's acceptable for most users, but for advanced users with lots of notifications, it's a disaster.
IOS 13 is taking steps to go hand in hand with the collection of notifications, a feature that combines all notifications in one application, allowing you to delete all of Instagram by one touch while leaving the others.
That's exactly what we want, but there is no way to select it as the default for all notifications; you must install each application and use the configuration.
Developments in app store upgrades
With the announcement of Apple Arcade in iOS 13, Apple has removed the & # 39; Update & # 39; in the App Store on the iPhone, which makes it difficult for iOS users to quickly access and list pending updates.
To be good with Apple, you can log into & # 39; Update & # 39; with the & # 39; shortcut and press & # 39; in the App Store and touch the profile icon in the upper right corner of the App Store.
However, it's not as accessible as it used to be, especially for low-tech professionals with iOS. We would like to see updates back to tabs in the App Store; After all, it is important to keep them updated.
Animoji filter in Camera app
Although it looks obvious, Animoji has been highlighting the main iOS experience since it arrived on the iPhone X in 2017, allowing you to send animated videos of your face to your friends, thanks to a face map.
You often see Animoji videos shared on social media, which raises a question; Why doesn't Apple ID limit Camera functionality in the Messaging app?
We would like to see Animoji effects found in the main camera app, which would allow us to take longer videos with Animoji content to share with friends and family through any platform or social network.
Alarms have been renamed
Alarm and alarm clock application as expected, but there are some changes that Apple should consider. We would love to be able to modify the sleep process based on whether you will work from home and you don't have to go to the office.
Changing the method manually is a tricky thing to remember, so it would be nice to change it, especially if the function is already available in alarms in normal mode, for some time in addition.
It is also necessary to be able to undo alarms or even alarms, a day, a week or a month without having to turn them off to reset the next day. A quick fix here will come in handy.
Siri, as an Apple Assistant, has improved significantly in recent years, so we're not sure that it doesn't offer features that you can find in your competitors, Alexa, Google Assistant or Cortana.
However, of course, Siri has plenty of room to develop solely based on the things she can do for you, otherwise she can tell you a good joke or do a web search.
At some point in the development, Siri will move from being an actor to something, focusing on what can be most beneficial to the user, in addition to being able to think about the applications we will make.
