Apple WWDC is a massive event to show off upcoming software and hardware transformation. It is some sort of induction for developers to demonstrate new features to which they should adapt their applications and programs, though consumers can glean what is coming too.

WWDC 2020 didn’t have an aim to demonstrate any hardware modifications, but we have prepared the most interesting software changes coming with to Apple’s lineup of devices.

iOS 14 is coming with a new software update

Apple has shown iOS 14 features for the first time. We will see the new software update later this year when the new devices will be revealed. The first eye-catching thing of the new iOS 14 is the old fellow widgets that you can arrange on your home screen as you wish. I remember when I’ve been trying to organize my desktop using widgets on Samsung Star 1. The telephone home screen looked rough but I was pleased. Apple will deliver a sense of nostalgia with this feature. Apple users will be able to adjust widgets through Widget Gallery.

In addition to the topic of the arrangement, with new iOS 14 you will be able to add App Library. It is a function that scans apps’ categories and puts them in the order.

Picture-in-picture is the other function you will get through the update. It is not a novelty but Apple polishes this feature, so in case you want to swipe a video away you can change the size of the PiP so it will not disturb your eye. The function will help you not to interrupt one process to open the other app.

Apple quits from the usage of Intel’s chips in their desktop devices and replaces them with Apple-designed silicon. IT is a meaningful change because the company now is not dedicated to the Intel’s progress, emphasizing on its own development. It is a time-consuming process, but Apple CEO Tim Cook said that in two years the full device lineup will use Apple chipset. The new Mac chipsets are aiming to boost performance and connect Mac line into the entire SoCs family.
