With the introduction of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, Apple didn’t leave Safari lagging behind the competition. In fact, the Cupertino-based tech giant took the browser a notch higher with a host of privacy-oriented additions, performance enhancements, and added functionalities. It’s a truly exciting upgrade that makes Safari significantly better than ever before — just don’t expect any changes to the aesthetics though. That said, let’s check out all the new features that made their way to Safari this year.
With the Fourth of July weekend coming up, now is a good time to buy an Apple product that you have been eyeing for so long as major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H are offering heavy discounts on them.
Last month, Apple announced iOS 14 during the online-only WWDC 2020 developer conference. The latest version of iOS 14 brings some welcome additions such as App Library, widgets support on the Home screen, new Call UI, and many more hidden tweaks. Looking at all the new iOS 14 features, I can’t help but notice some features copied from other apps and services offered by third-party apps on the App Store. Apple adding such features in the default OS is a big deal. The practice ultimately kills some of the third-party apps as most users end up sticking with what iOS has to offer out of the box.
Unlike last year, the first beta of iOS 14 has been relatively stable which has led to a lot of people installing it on their iPhone. The improved Home screen experience, App Library, and all the other new features in iOS 14 have tempted a lot of iPhone users to jump the gun on the first developer beta of the OS.
Apple was too late in offering a fast charger bundled with the iPhone in the box, and it is now being rumored that the company might not offer a USB charger in the box at all. The rumor of no charger in the box with the iPhone 12 series is already angered a few users, though. Now, the company has been seen surveying iPhone users about their USB charger.
We were startled that iPhone 6s, a device that debuted five years ago supported the latest iOS 14. Brandon Butch, a YouTuber has now released a video that shows how iPhone 6s handles iOS 14 beta.
Remember the iPhone Batterygate controversy? It had to pay $500 million to settle the lawsuit in the US. Still, it doesn’t look like the issue is completely dead yet, even after Apple offered discounted battery replacements. A European consumer organization is looking to demand compensation from Apple for iPhone users.
