An information leak would tell us more about iOS 14, the future operating system concocted by Apple for its iPhone and iPad.

Stop everything! A beta version of iOS 14 would have been leaked, telling us a little more about the new features it will offer to many Apple users. If the apple brand was only supposed to present it in June 2020, for its big annual convention, the WWDC, it would seem that the smart kids have managed to obtain exclusive information on the future operating system for iPhone and iPad.

The first novelty would be less, but should still please Apple fans: in the Messages application, it will now be possible, as in competing online messaging services, to mention someone in a conversation using a ” @ “, just before his name. What send her a notification even if she put the conversation on mute. It should also be possible to delete a message from a conversation, mark messages as unread, announce whether or not you are active on a conversation as well as indicate when a user is composing a message in a group conversation. Proof that Apple intends to give more freedom to users of its iPhone.

The American firm is also in the process of developing an application dedicated to sports: Fitness. It should allow more interesting use of the Apple Watch than with Activity, and will provide the most athletic among you with tutorial videos to engage in different activities. Relaxing yoga sessions are yours to start the day on the right foot.

The iPad is still evolving with iOS 14

The one who will be entitled to a real boost with the iOS 14 is the iPad which, for some, is increasingly close to a computer. With the second version of iPadOS, trackpads and mice would work better on Apple tablets, with a change in shape for the cursor when it hovers over a link. The lines of code of the operating system would also reveal that Apple is developing smart keyboards, more intuitive for better management of office tasks.

Finally, the last improvement for the iPad: an improvement of the Apple Pencil, which could now offer the possibility of writing directly in the Calendars, Mail and Messages applications. The handwritten text will then be directly converted into typed text by software, as in Notes.

If there is nothing really revolutionary on the horizon, these are all the same great new features that Apple offers. They will most likely be joined by other innovations. But to find out more, we will have to wait until June 2020, when the American company will officially unveil iOS 14 during its annual WWDC in California.
