“The iOS 14 build that runs on iPhone 11 Pro Max shows that the new multitasking view on the iPhone will be similar to what we’ve seen on iPads before”
Apple is expected to make several important changes to the iPhone setup later this year with the iPhone 12 series. However, before that time, there will be iOS 14 to look forward to at the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2020 in June. Ahead of the conference 91mobiles and noted tipster Ben Geskin brings you the first look at the updated iOS 14 multitasking display. The video and the accompanying photos show that Apple also takes over the iOS multitasking format for the iPhones with iOS 14.
In the video (below) you can see an internal build of iOS 14 on an iPhone 11 Pro Max. The apps appear fairly quickly in the multitasking view and can also be rejected quickly. A total of four apps can fit on the screen at the same time, and more are available when you swipe your finger to the right.
In addition, if we delay the video by 0: 03 seconds, we can see that when you reject an app, it will show a lock opening. Remarkably, the lock does not appear when the apps appear on the screen. It is currently unclear what the purpose of the lock might be, but a well-considered guess could be that locked apps are locked so that they are not accidentally closed during multitasking.
This layout is similar to the multitasking view of iPad that we have seen before, so we can expect the transition between users to go smoothly. However, we will have to wait for further leaks to find out if genuine, native split-screen support comes to iOS with iOS 14.
Little is known about iOS 14 at the moment, although a recent report claimed that Apple could finally let users change the standard system apps with the next major software upgrade for iPhones. This means that you can, for example, use Gmail and Chrome as standard email and browser apps instead of Mail and Safari. We can also expect small changes in the way content is displayed on the screen, because the notch would disappear with iPhone 12 models to make way for a really full screen.
Although the rest of the iOS 14 features will currently be speculative, there is a compatibility report for older models. According to a report dating from last month, Apple offers iOS 14 support to all models that run on iOS 13. That means that all models from iPhone 6s / 6s Plus to iPhone 11/11 Pro / 11 Pro Max (and the rumors about iPhone 9) Get the iOS 14 update in September 2020. Of course, the iPhone 12 series with iOS 14 comes out of the box.
That’s all the information we currently have about iOS 14. Stay up to date with 91mobiles for more updates on the subject!
