It’s been one month since iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 launched and we are still learning new tricks and tips. The operating systems introduce a bundle of useful features that take the performances and user experiences of Apple’s devices to the next level, and today, we are going to share with you 5 more iOS 14 tips to help you unlock your iPhone’s full potential.
iOS 14 – Tips and Tricks
Improved Home Screen
Hands down, the best features that iOS 14 introduces is the ability to customize the home screen. Even though Android fans had access to widgets and customization tools for years, iPhone users were left behind. Fortunately, this is not the case anymore. iPhones now have access to an app drawer dubbed as “App Library”. All their apps are automatically stored by category to make them easier to access.
Create Your Own App Icons
As previously mentioned, iOS 14 gives iPhone users more customization options than ever. Did you know now you can create your own app icons? This can be done by using the Shortcuts app and customizing the look of your favorite apps. For example, you can replace the Spotify icon with a pair of headphones or a cute cat.
It’s finally here! Apple has listened to feedback from iPhone users and decided that time has come to give everyone access to the famous Picture-in-Picture mode, or PiP for short. The great thing about this mode is that it takes the multitasking abilities of iPhones to the next level. You can watch your favorite videos while answering emails or checking social media on the other side of the screen. Although, we do need to mention that this is limited to supported apps only.
Delete Apple Mail and Safari
Apple doesn’t really like it when people delete its native iOS apps but now, iOS 14 is making it possible to get rid of Apple Mail and Safari. Therefore, you can go for alternatives without having to worry that two useless icons will occupy your home screen. This is no longer a problem.
Take Better Selfies with Mirror Mode
If there is one thing that everyone loves about iPhones, then it has to be their selfies cameras. iPhone selfies look amazing, but now they are even better. The operating system update introduces a new Mirror Mode that makes it easier to frame up a shot and get the perfect angle.
