This is the thread where we post the more obscure features that did not get "main stage" time at the WWDC Keynote on June 22. We try to post these things here as different features emerge or are released at different times throughout the beta process leading up to the public release of iOS 14 in the Fall. If we post these features in the beta threads, they may get lost as the we'll go through at least 5 or 6 betas on the way to public release.
Here we go:
Here we go:
- The weather app now shows precipitation probabilities for each day in the forecast, and not just "today".
- The words "Delivered" and "Read" in iMessages appears to be a bit larger than in iOS 13.
- Call audio routing has been moved to “accessibility”, “touch” for some reason.
- Aside from “iTunes Store”, in iOS 14, there is no mention of iTunes Store anymore. Under user profile page, the menu with App Store icon now says “Media and app purchases”.
- There is a new “reduce loud sounds” option under “sounds”. It allows iPad to analyse headphone audio and reduce the sound that reaches a certain level, a bit like a systemwide sound check feature.
- There are a handful of fonts listed in the “fonts” section of the setting even if there is no app that comes with fonts installed. (Need further verification)
- There is now a new privacy setting that asks if an app wants to access devices that are in the same local network.
- iOS 14 now has password security recommendations. It will show you if your password has been present in a data breach, if your password is easy to guess, if your password has been used in multiple sites.
- Users now can set default website specific settings like microphone access or location request in setttings app.
- Game Center now allows users to invite their contacts as friends and check game achievements.
- Safari now checks your passwords against data breaches and will notify you if they are part of one on your homescreen so you can change it.
- Under “Legal & Regulatory”, ”Regulatory Certification” is now visible right underneath entries like “License“ and “Warranty”.
- Under “Privacy”, “Photos”, users now can selectively allow certain photos to be accessed by app instead of “every single photo in the library“ or “deny access”.
- Mail app setting allows user to control if attachments are included in their replies; a 3-column view on iPad (mailboxes|listing|preview) allows easy drag&drop of messages into other folders.
- In Notes app, ”Recently deleted” folder will be hidden if there is no recently deleted notes.
- If iPad is connected to Apple Smart Keyboard Folio, collapsing prediction bar or popping up software keyboard requires user to tap the keyboard icon with three dots at bottom right corner.
- With Scribble mode active, users can also choose to have iPhone size floating keyboard on and swipe just like in iOS 13.
- iOS timer inside Clocks app still uses scroll wheel selector for creating a new timer.
- iOS now has an indicator at the top of the screen which indicates when the user is being recorded with camera or microphone. The orange light indicates microphone usage while the green is for camera usage. Pulling down on the Notification Center tells the user which app recorded last.
- In group messages, you can assign/ change a group picture to something other than everyone’s profile pictures. Tap on the “info” icon, and select “Change Name and Photo”
- The Camera App now has "sticky" Exposure Compensation.
- For Apple Music subscriber, they can no longer toggle “Show Apple Music” in music app settings. This toggle is still visible for non-subscribers.
- Old “Volume limit” has been replaced with “Reduce Loud Sounds” option.
- “Night shift” on iPad loses the ability to set it follow sunrise and sunset like dark mode could.
- It is no longer possible to sync a playlist from iPhone to Apple Watch. You can only sync songs in album.
