As the legal battle between Apple and Epic continues, it seems that those of you who still have Fortnite installed on their iPhones or iPads might want to stay away from the iOS 14 update. This is according to a tweet by the Fortnite Status account who claims that updating to iOS 14 could result in the app being uninstalled.
One of the new features of iOS 14 that users have been anticipating is the ability to set default apps. Previously, website links would typically open in Safari, even if you use Chrome primarily. Email links would also open in the iOS Mail app, despite the fact that users might be using other apps like Outlook, Gmail, and so on.
Apple made a surprising announcement last week when they revealed that iOS 14 would be released the next day after the announcement itself. This is of course great news for iPhone and iPad users who might have been looking forward to some of the new features and changes to the platform.
New major updates to iOS are always welcome, but usually with new updates, there are new features that might require more work than before, and as such, older hardware might not be optimized to handle it so well. As a result, sometimes it can feel like installing a new iOS update on an older iPhone could result in downgraded performance.
One of the features of iOS 14 is that the company is finally bringing support for picture-in-picture mode when it comes to videos. Apps, of course, need to be updated to take advantage of the new feature. YouTube was discovered to be testing this out in their app back in August, but they have yet to update their app to support it.
When Apple announced iOS 14, they announced a bunch of privacy changes to the platform that would better protect users against things like tracking. One of those changes included how iOS devices would use a random MAC address when connecting to WiFi networks, with the idea being that it would prevent retailers from using MAC addresses to track customers.
For years, Android allowed users to set default apps when it comes to browser or email clients, but it was only with iOS 14 that Apple finally introduced a similar feature to its platform. With iOS 14 having been released, we’re sure that many users are excited to try out the new feature, but there might be some bad news.
When it comes to identifying songs you hear in public or on the radio, Shazam is one of those apps. However, to launch Shazam would need to look for the app, launch it, or you can also launch Siri and use Shazam through it. However, Apple is hoping to make the process a little faster.
Heads up iPhone and iPad users, if you have been looking forward to checking out the latest iOS and iPadOS update, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has since officially released iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 where both the software updates for Apple’s smartphones and tablets are now available for download.
Picture-in-picture is a feature that we’ve seen on Android phones in the past, but it’s not something that Apple has introduced to their iPhones, at least until iOS 14. However, the onus is still on developers to choose whether or not they want to support it, and it looks like YouTube is testing the feature out.
Apple has long touted its stance on privacy and have introduced various privacy protection features in both iOS and macOS much to the annoyance of advertisers. It seems that the company doesn’t really seem too bothered by the outcry because iOS 14 is expected to introduce more of the same.
iOS 14 will be bringing a host of new features to Apple’s mobile operating system, but if you can’t wait for the final release, here’s how you can download the public beta to take some of those features for a spin.
There have been many who have theorized and come up with conspiracy theories that suggests that social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram are spying on us and listening to our conversations. How else would they have the ability to display ads for products and services we only just talked about?
According to the rumors, Apple is set to launch four iPhone models this year. What’s interesting is that one of the models, the base model to be exact, will come in a smaller 5.4-inch body compared to the 6.1-inch and 6.8-inch models. Save for the iPhone SE, Apple has not released a flagship iPhone in such a small body for a while now.
