iOS 14 Beta 2! 60+ New Features/Changes

by birtanpublished on August 5, 2020

And what's up guys everything Apple Pro here today I was 14 beta 2 wasn't launched let's go ahead and take a look at what's new what's inside and I've counted over 60 features and changes so a lot to get excited about here now overall the iOS 14 beta program has been

Fantastic one issue that I've noticed is a stutter a hang once in a while who would appear and so far and just you know four or five hours of using iOS 14 beta 2 it's been overall fantastic and that stutter

Has not been present on my iPhone so number one change is that the stutter issue especially when typing in with the keyboard the input lag has been resolved now there are tons and tons of new icon changes in iOS 14 little glyphs here and

There so I'll capture the biggest ones but just want to let you know there are so many I'm not gonna go through every single one and you and I was 14 only visible when updating to beta 2 you cannot be playing audio out of your

IPhone while updating a very strange request I don't see why iOS couldn't cancel down on its own and to icon changes on the home screen the clock app now features more prominent watch hands I think

They're more reminiscent of the Apple watch very cool adds a little bit more depth also the calendar icon out features a bolder number and an abbreviated day so instead of Tuesday spelling it out it now features a larger

Tue an interesting change in the status bar on the charging indicators on that little battery icon the lightning bolt which indicates charging is now larger more prominent on beta 2 on the right here I do like this one

Picture-in-picture on iOS 14 beta 2 now has different sizing settings so a double tap now has three modes where before it would only have two so now that's the largest DoubleTap to go to medium and then double tap again to go

To smallest on this one you'll just get kicked into the largest so pretty cool to have more adjustment there also when the picture-in-picture player is hidden you can now kick it out just by clicking on the little tab previously you'd have

To drag it out so we don't work with the same control it's pretty cool that they added that when using any app that uses the camera and then going into the control center to see be recording indicator a little green dot the icon

Here for that is now different it's using the camera icon from the FaceTime instead of the old one now on the home screen when entering edit home screen mode and when you select the little minus

Icon the option has changed from add to library to remove from homescreen this is to ease any confusions now if we do go ahead and remove that app or remove from home screen now to for certain stock system apps you no longer have the

Option to remove the app from within the app library Apple has removed that this is not the case for third-party apps just select system stock apps also within the Apple library Apple has done some organization here a

Reference and reading has been relocated socialists in its place so the orders are slightly different here and in the dedicated widgets page the legacy widgets on the very bottom for all of your old apps here they have

A new view so slightly been condensed made to look more in line with Apple's new widgets one thing I've noticed in the same widgets page after updating is that a smart stack widget was applied automatically to the top I'm not sure if

This is the case for everybody but for me a notice this on two devices a nice little aesthetic change when adding widgets the button on the bottom will now be selective of the color of the widget or content inside of the widget

And when editing a smart stack widget now the interface looks slightly different so these smart rotate buttons sits on top now there's an X button to X out of this menu and the card itself is now rounded lorring lion with iOS and

There's now a new files widget in beta 2 available in two sizes large and super massive and this will show you your most recent files takes a while to populate that's what it would look like right there you can jump into those real quick

And for the photos widget there's now a new size also super massive previously unavailable so I think it's a four by four in widget size and yeah just look at your photos and even larger detail the notes widget has also been reworked

And now features a prominent notes badge up top and the information inside is slightly condensed so you can see more info now that it's smaller and the larger weather widget has been fixed where previously would just sit on

Cupertino weather no matter where you were that's been resolved to is the view for the icons here has been enhanced so slightly larger but getting clipped more work to be done whenever there's an action that's about to happen with the

Weather you'll see this little preview right here where it previously would just give you a static display of what's going on so it's nice this will switch back to that view after a little while in the series suggestions widget now

Depicts the active number of notifications for a certain application which it displays in here previously it would not and for the smaller reminders widget two by two it will now display the first reminder in text form here

Instead of just the number of reminders that you have so it becomes even more useful in reminders lists with an emoji for the icon and that will have a nice little border for it slightly different view and this is where my microphone

Decided to call it quits so voice over from here on out so in the control center there's now a reworked home app tile it's much larger I like this one less on the right side it seems to be some sort of adaptive tile depending on

What you use most you're gonna see something different here I've seen multiple different versions already in the full-screen home favorites view the titling hasn't been reworked here in different color and slightly smaller

Icon and the home scenes section has been removed entirely from this full-screen view as for the icons on these individual tiles you can see they've all been made slightly smaller and the fonts have been reduced as well

In the control center the new sleep mode tile when pressed now shows teal instead of that dark blue the new pasted security feature in iOS 14 the interface for it has been made slightly smaller and now

Shows more text and it'll show the respective device where you're pasting from for example Mac Pro in music in multiple pages we see many changes to text and formatting for the options for example the buttons up top have been

Moved apart slightly and titling has been made more pleasant in music the bottom navigation bar icons have all been slightly adjusted all the sizings and positioning in the search portion of music you can see that categories have

Been slightly reworked there's an additional long horizontal option and many of the other categories have been repositioned when haptic touching within music there are a couple icons change –is one to the play icon and another to

The love icon there now outlines instead of solid colors a very pleasant change is the addition of haptic touch within the music application now when skipping or play pausing your music you'll feel a very subtle

Vibration there's really cool reveal animation in the music application what happed touching certain things as you can see compared to beta one on the left I liked it a lot more in the music settings show Apple

Music is gone by default that's just always there now there's also a new category for motion in music settings and two settings Wi-Fi only and completely off this is for the new animated covers within music they do

Demand more battery life and it's slightly more data hence the Wi-Fi only option in podcasts on the bottom navigation bar browse and library options have swapped places in settings within the wallpaper preview

The widgets are now representative of the actual widgets and the data they pertain on your home screen pretty cool nice little touch versus just placeholders in Wi-Fi settings there's now a new warning for privacy

Warning which will let you know what this feature is and whether or not you're connected to it in settings within Apple ID settings there's a new icon for family sharing very modern you'll see the same icon within the app

Store splash screen for family sharing which lets you know to set that up and what it is within the phone settings there are new icons for incoming calls and announced calls categories there's a new behavior when holding the back icon

To shortcut into different pages now without removing your finger it will shortcut you directly into the first option or you can drag down and select any others the dictation interface has been updated and now with even bolder

Lines when location services is disabled in maps now the little icon up top looks different and within maps you're now able to access guides for select locations this was unavailable in beta 1 but now for San Francisco for example

There are multiple guides pre-made which give you a tour of the city without ever being there some slight interface changes when navigating by bicycle and you can no longer avoid stairs the option has obviously been removed for

Bicycle owners couple changes to the Maps application for users and other countries one alerts for congested areas that charge tolls and two a feature coming soon is possibly navigate by license-plate certainly limited to

Certain areas the weather application will now specify exactly where it's pulling the weather from for example in San Francisco now it's even more precise down to the street within messages there's a larger image

Picker view it's a little glitchy at the moment and within the full-screen view it'll now show you the limit of photos you can send for example here 20 items in Safari within the toolbar the tracking report option has been renamed

To privacy report and inside you can actually click on the trackers option now previously that was not working in the Translate application when selecting a language you'll now see the country of origin listed below that language pretty

Nice little touch and for home Potter beta firmware testers you can now change the default music service such as from Apple music to Spotify and podcasts as well also below in automations there's a new option to add an automation below

The paws one last person leaves option and for iPad users you can now reorganize or remove entirely the option for the silent mode switch in the control center it's something that I personally use a lot so I don't see

Myself removing it but it's nice that Apple gives you that option as you can see removing it it's no longer present also on iPad in the photos application there's a new section in a sidebar for utilities where imports hidden photos

And recently deleted photos are listed Apple has also included a new hand-washing article within the Health application which details how to do it properly and more information also revealed in code within Iowa's 14 beta

295 Mac has found evidence that Apple is introducing a QR code payment system for Apple pay unclear on the details or how to enable it but it is coming and just for kicks iran Geekbench 5 on both betas beta 2 revealed that much higher

Multi-core score single-core was identical as for performance on beta 1 I'm actually very pleasantly surprised it was very good battery life was only about 10 to 15 percent worse than on iOS 135 but overall for a first beta I was

Very impressed I'll report back on beta 2 in the next beta video thanks for watching guys stay tuned for more peace
