Yeah, I'm a little excited about Apple's Keynotes today! Maybe I'm a little too excited about the roll out of the new iOS 14 that will make our lives so much easier when it comes to finding apps on our home screen (well if you're the kind of person who has 300 apps on your phone!
From Elite Daily:
On Monday, June 22, Apple kicked off its 2020 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) Keynote by previewing some of the biggest changes that'll be coming to its operating systems. This year, a good portion of the tech giant's presentation at the annual conference focused on iOS 14's new features that'll impact the appearance and functionality of users' devices, especially when it comes to the iPhone homepage.Apple's iOS 14 Home Screen updates, which will officially be rolling out when the system launches, include new widget technology and changes to how you can view and access your apps.
At this year's annual WWDC, Tim Cook and Apple demonstrated the company's renewed focus on helping customers' devices run more smoothly with the launch of iOS 14 for iPhones, iPadOs for iPads, and MacOS for Macs.Apple announced a slew of upgrades to some of the devices' existing layouts and functions, confirming rumors that Apple's latest operating system willinclude a redesign to the iPhone's Home Screenwhen it officially rolls out to the public in the fall.
For one, instead of the app grid view that dates back to the original iPhone, users will now have the option to look at apps in a scrolling list form through an App Library, which automatically organizes your apps into folders by category. TheApp Library, which will be located on the last page of your Home Screen, can help you keep things organized by housing all your apps and allowing you to hide some of the App Pages, so you have fewer pages to scroll through to get to the Library. In addition to an alphabetized list, which you can search and scroll through, you'll also be able to view Siri suggestions of your most used and recently added apps, which will be right at the top of your screen.
That's pretty friggin' cool if you ask me! It'll help with organization and finding your apps instantly.
