Apple has further solidified its pro-privacy stance with the introduction of some new features in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. Multiple updates across the board now put apps under increased scrutiny, web browsing is more secure, and a number of improvements to existing features allow for a much private experience on the iPhone and iPad. Let’s take a deep dive and look at the best privacy and security features that you get with iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.
With iOS 14, Apple has finally added support for widgets on the iPhone’s home screen allowing users to place them anywhere they want. While Apple had added widgets support on the iPad’s home screen with iPadOS 13 in 2019 itself, it limited them to the Today view on the home screen. In iPadOS 14 , the company has not made any improvements to its widgets implementation meaning users cannot place widgets anywhere on the home screen like they can on the iPhone.
With iPadOS 14, Apple opted for refinements over radical changes on the iPad. The first major update to last year’s iPadOS focuses hugely on streamlining the user interface while enhancing productivity. It’s filled with numerous tweaks to native apps, enhanced Apple Pencil support, superior web browsing capabilities, and more. You can find the best iPadOS 14 features here.
