The most important change brought to iOS 14 was the introduction of widgets and application libraries. The App Library works like an app drawer on Android, so you don’t have to keep pages and pages of apps on your screen. However, within three months of my use, I didn’t really find myself going to the app library too much. I only use Spotlight Search for apps
I find widgets useful to Rotter: I often go to the Widgets page to check the weather or my meetings for the day in Google Calendar. When third party application developers surround their widgets soon, I think I’ll move some to my home screen.
A small, but significant change that Apple brought with iOS 14 was the floating call notification. Now, you won’t have full-screen call popping, but instead will have a floating banner at the top, allowing you to receive, reject, or mute the call when using an application.
There’s a great feature called back tap that lets you define actions for double and triple tapping the phone on the back. You can read more about it here.
There is also SMS spam filtering, which sends messages from unknown senders to a separate folder, so you can keep your personal messages separate. It automatically sorts transactions and promotional messages.
