Apple will release the new major updates for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch operating systems on Wednesday. The company announced this during an online presentation on Tuesday evening.

Updates for iPad and Apple Watch

From Wednesday, iPhone users can update to iOS 14. The operating system will be available for all phones that also work with iOS 13. Those are the iPhone 6S (2015) or newer models.

In iOS 14, the home screen of the iPhone has been updated. For example, widgets can be added for the first time in iOS. Information is displayed on these blocks between the app icons, without having to open an app. For example, the weather forecast or the calendar can be viewed directly from the home screen.

An ‘App Library’ has also been added, a list where all installed apps on the iPhone will be placed. The apps are grouped according to category in this list.

Furthermore, iOS 14 offers picture-in-picture mode. This allows videos to be pinned into the picture, even if other apps are opened in the meantime. This makes it possible, for example, to chat with friends while watching a video.

IPadOS 14 will also be released on Wednesday, also with widgets on the home screen. In addition, the system offers new functions for the stylus Apple Pencil, including handwriting recognition. Handwritten messages from users can be converted into plain text.

WatchOS 7 will be released for the Apple Watch. This operating system will be released for the Apple Watch Series 3 and newer models. Among other things, the update will add a sleep tracker so that users can keep track of how well they slept that night. The tracker also gives tips to rest better.

Furthermore, watchOS 7 adds a hand washing function with a timer that indicates whether the hands have been cleaned thoroughly enough.
