iOS 14 Leak Points Towards CarPlay Wallpapers, Apple Store Integration In Apple Maps

Apple CarPlay

Apple recently announced the release date for iOS 13.4, but iOS 14 features have started leaking already. It was recently unveiled that the company could finally allow list view for the home screen and integration with third-party wallpaper apps. Now, it is being reported that the upcoming version of iOS will allow wallpapers for CarPlay and deeper Apple Maps integration.

The folks over at 9To5Mac, who have managed to obtain an under-development version of iOS 14 code, are reporting that Apple could allow custom wallpapers for CarPlay’s home screen for the first time. Right now, the company seems to be testing the upcoming feature with iOS 13 wallpapers. iOS 14 will automatically switch between light and dark versions of wallpapers, similar to iPhone’s and iPad’s home screen. The iOS 13.4 update already brought support for third-party navigation apps for CarPlay’s dashboard view.

The Cupertino-based tech giant is also planning to display additional information about Apple Stores in Apple Maps. Right now, iOS 13 only displays basic information such as location, phone number, store timings, photos, and Today at Apple sessions. However, starting with iOS 14, the company’s maps app could display additional information such as the availability of Genius Bar services at each Apple retail store.

Information such as which Apple Stores are offering same-day battery and screen repairs could also be seen with iOS 14 on Apple Maps. For those who want to buy new Apple products can see if a specific Apple Store is offering a trade-in for credit via some sort of verification badge. Additionally, Apple Maps could also display information such as the availability of private rooms, seating for couples, discounts for children, and more at certain places.

With the iOS 14 update, Apple Maps could also show which cinemas have IMAX movie sessions. This would be a huge improvement over Apple Maps in iOS 13, which has already seen new and useful features with a recent update in the US and some other markets.

Previously, it was reported that iOS 14 will bring a new AR app with Apple Store and Starbucks integration. The iPhone maker could finally allow changing default browser and mail apps to third-party options. A new recent apps UI could also be a part of Apple’s upcoming major version of iOS.
