iOS 14 Beta : Widgets, App Library & More

Apple announced iOS 14 at WWDC 2020. This is some of the NEW Features in iOS 14 Beta . This new version of iOS delivers an all-new compact design that lets users multitask while receiving calls, asking Siri a question, or watching videos.

iOS 14 Beta 1 Preview

Apple made the first beta of IOS 14 available to developers at WWDC 2020, so we are going to take a look at some of the New Features iOS 14 Beta 1 has to offer. As the Beta’s gradually get updated and new features are added we will keep you updated.

App Library

At the end of the Home Screen pages is the App Library, a new space that automatically sorts all of a user’s apps into one simple, easy-to-navigate view, and intelligently surfaces apps that may be helpful in the moment.

Users can choose how many Home Screen pages to display and easily hide pages for quicker access to the App Library.


The new widgets present timely information at a glance and can be pinned in different sizes on any Home Screen page. Users can create a Smart Stack of widgets, which uses on-device intelligence to surface the right widget based on time, location, and activity.

Apple is also adding improved translation support. As part of a new Translate app, Siri will help with translations that will even work completely offline. The new Translate app feels like a big competitor to Google’s own Translate app, and it will also work in landscape mode on iPhones.

Translate App

iOS 14 includes a new “Translate” app which, as the name suggests, offers a complete translator that works with text and voice. All the translations are processed locally with the Neural Engine, so this feature work even without an internet connection, and it wouldn’t send data to Apple.
