It seems that Apple likes Android features. According to a new discovery, two practical features that have been integrated in Android for years now should also find their way to iOS 14.
iOS 14: Two new functions come from Android
It is not the first time that Android and iOS are copying practical functions from each other. With iOS 14, however, it seems as if Apple wants to orientate itself more and more towards Android. It was recently announced that iOS 14 should get an app drawer so that not all app icons have to be displayed on the home screen. This function has been around for years on Android. But Apple is not getting enough. According to the latest information from MacRumors, Apple should go one step further.
Accordingly, Apple wants to allow widgets on the home screen in iOS 14. The company would also take over a function from Android that has been there from the start. Apple has already integrated widgets into the operating system – but only in the “Today” view. According to the new information, these could be placed directly on the home screen with iOS 14. It is quite possible that the app icons can then be arranged freely, but has not yet been confirmed. Also, you should be able to adjust the background image even better, just like with Android. In addition, this should change depending on the situation.

When will the new version be released?
Apple usually gives an outlook on the new iOS version at WWDC in June. Due to the Corona crisis, the event has now been turned into an online event so that the developers do not have to meet on site. The new iOS 14 will then likely be launched along with the iPhone 12, which is expected in September 2020. At the moment, however, it is not known whether the schedule can really be maintained in these difficult times.
