IOS 14 & A14 Chip?
There is a lot to expect from this virtual version of WWDC 2020. The biggest one could be the fact that iOS will now be called iPhoneOS, which kind of makes sense, considering the iPad and Apple Watch have their own dedicated platforms. The update, which theoretically is iOS 14, should be a considerable upgrade over iOS 13. We could see a new design language for iOS and expect under-the-hood updates for improved stability and better performance. There has been speculation of the addition of full-fledged widgets for the home screen, as well as the functionality that allows users to set third-party apps as defaults. Other potential features could include offline Siri functionality. iMessage getting more functionality and much more. We could also see a bigger push into AR for the iPhone as it is expected to integrate LiDAR technology just like the recent iPad Pro. These will be based on the A14 chip that is expected to power the next iPhone which could give Apple a massive advantage in terms of bringing the marriage of hardware and software even closer together.
