iOS 14
Engadget

You won’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on iOS 14 — that is, if you haven’t taken the plunge with the beta. Apple will roll it out on September 16th (i.e. tomorrow). It’ll be available on iPhone 6s and above.

Update, 9/16/20 4:15PM ET: It’s out!

The company opted to release iOS 14 before announcing its latest iPhones, which are widely expected to be revealed next month. When you update your current iPhone, you’ll have access to a boatload of new features, such as home screen widgets and a different way to organize your apps in the form of the App Library.

You’ll be able to watch shows on the likes of Netflix and Apple TV+ while you do other things on your iPhone, thanks to the handy picture-in-picture mode. Siri is getting some upgrades too, including an audio translation feature, and it’ll pop up at the top of your screen instead of taking over your entire display.

In Messages, you’ll be able to pin your most important conversations to the top for easier access and group chats will have in-line replies. Cycling directions are coming to Maps, which’ll have improved location-finding features too.

There’s also a tool in iOS 14 called app clips, through which you can access parts of apps without having to download them. You might, for instance, pay for parking using Apple Pay and Sign in with Apple without having to wait for an app to finish downloading or creating an account for an app you might never use again.
