Apple recently announced that they will be hosting the 2020 WWDC as an online event with no attendees. In this event, the company will present us all the software news related to iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.

We do not know exactly all the software functions that Apple will present at WWDC 2020, but we do know some features that, curiously, have leaked over the last few days.

Hidden under the internal code of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 were a series of functions in a massive leak that revealed novelties in the ARKit architecture of augmented reality, in the HomeKit home automation platform, in accessibility settings and in applications such as Messages .

Everything new that is coming to iOS 14 and iPadOS 14

There are still a few months until the WWDC, which we remember can only be seen online, however we already know some details related to the launch of future versions of iOS (iPhone) and iPadOS (iPad).

Read on to discover the 7 most top news about the functions that iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 have in store:

1. A new view of the Home Screen

Everything seems to indicate that Apple completely redesign the Home screen user interface from the iPhone and probably also from the iPad. It will be the introduction of the biggest change in the appearance of this interface for years, when they implemented a drastic minimalist change in iOS 7.

It is still not very clear what the applications will look like on the Home Screen, nor if it will only be an optional function available in Settings so that users can have both alternatives at hand but we know that applications will be listed that can be explored using tactile scrolling gestures.

In fact, a few days ago a curious concept of the interface of the list of applications of the new Home screen of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 appeared.

Another leak suggests that iOS 14 takes augmented reality to another level, allowing users scan and identify real life objects. Apple will launch a new application that will also be available in the augmented reality glasses that the company is working on.

3. Wallpapers


Although it has always been possible to use any image you want as a wallpaper, it has never been done from a third-party application. You have to save the image and then configure it in Settings. But Apple could offer better image organization in settings.

4. Detection of people in HomeKit

Apple included compatibility with security cameras on HomeKit over the past year, expanding its use and allowing videos to be recorded and stored in iCloud. Now with iOS 14 and iPadOS you can know when there is a person in the room, and know who it is thanks to facial recognition. In this way, you can receive notifications about who is in your house.

<p>Controlling home lighting is one of the most useful features of Apple's home automation system. Probably for this reason it was the first category of accessories to come to HomeKit. And perhaps also because of this Apple has decided to add one more function. And what an interesting function!</p>
<p>We are talking about a kind of Night Shift Mode that will make the lighting in your home <strong>change your tone and temperature automatically</strong> so you can accommodate your view at a specific time.</p>
<h3>6. Accessibility features</h3>

Lastly, the Cupertino company will also implement some very interesting news in the Messages app on iOS 14 and iPadOS 14: withdrawal of sent messages, a system of mentions and writing indicators in group chats.
