The latest Apple event had zero news on the iPhone 12, but the company still surprised everybody at the end. By the event’s close, CEO Tim Cook had announced that Apple would release the iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, and the new tvOS updates at the same time.  

New Apple OS Updates: iOS 14

Despite the absence of the iPhone 12, iOS 14 should tide users over with its range of new features.

With iOS 14, you can now enjoy one of Android’s main features: widgets. Apple wants users to play around with their widgets. You can move them around, or move them from the home screen to another page. Edit each widget to show more info or less. Notably, you can even stack all your widgets through Smart Stack, based on what iOS knows about your usage habits. 

iPadOS 14

For iPad users, Apple also has a slew of changes for iPadOS. The latest iPadOS now allows users to multitask while FaceTiming, since calls don’t take up the whole screen anymore. 

If you use the Apple Pencil, you can also use the Scribble feature. Just open a text field, a search bar, or a note-taking app, and write onscreen. Just tap what you wrote to select it, and then tap again to select the whole line. 

WatchOS 7

For Apple Watch users, watchOS 7 now lets your Watch track your sleep. To protect you from COVID-19, watchOS 7 can time your handwashing. When your Watch detects running water or your moving hands, it starts the 20-second countdown. 

Meanwhile, the tvOS update should give your Apple TV more stability.
