How to enable iOS 14's coolest hidden feature

How to enable iOS 14's coolest hidden feature”

But in 2020, the Cupertino company made a notable change in its trend of releasing major software updates and announced a day's notice for developers to make their apps ready for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.

In the latest update, there will be a "warning dot" that appears at the top of your phone which will indicate whenever your microphone or camera is activated by an app.

The new iOS 14.2 beta will likely be in testing for some time as Apple works on releasing new iPhones. So you can expect some new features with iPadOS 14, tvOS 14 and watchOS 7 as well.

With iOS 14 now officially here, it was only a matter of time before we started hearing about the bugs.

The software is available on iPhone 6s and above, giving users access to a redesigned home screen, widget gallery and a new Siri interface.

Apple's iOS 14 update now has an indicator to show you when the microphone or camera is active.

These useful widgets aren't the only new feature with iOS 14 also including improved messaging, more editable Memojis and something called the App Library. Writing in text fields is nice, for sure, but writing on other parts of the screen feels like you're unlocking a special power in the app.

With iOS 14, AirPods get smarter, and are able to automatically switch between devices based on what you're doing. By using the @ symbol and typing their name, you will be able to mention that person specifically in the chat. This is the biggest change to the iOS home screen since the initial release. Assuming your Today list is organized properly, the first three tasks should always be the most important tasks to see at any given moment, making this complication a no-brainer. Some of them also showed their frustration on Twitter. But with the App Drawer in iOS 14, that's no longer the case; organization can be taken care of for you. You can choose to only share approximate location with apps and not precise location, and you get more transparency regarding an app's use of your mic and camera.

I've spent the past few months perfecting my shortcuts, and now all I need to do is tap a single button on the lock screen to turn off my TV, turn off my lights and play white noise on my speaker as I head to bed.

What's more, the Picture in Picture window can be resized, and with some simple tricks, you can even enjoy it with YouTube videos.
