yo what's up guys sam here welcome back to another video we're checking out ios 14 beta 3 today which introduces way more changes than we thought from new clock widget new music icon changes all the way around the operating system uh there's actually a lot to talk about that i wasn't expecting even uh got some changes off the bat here like a new app library welcome page so i want to jump into everything new if you guys are excited for the video drop a like down below hit subscribe for more

Let's go ahead and get started and before jumping in obviously this is out for the ipad as well and the public beta is here as well so you guys can get all the cool changes we're about to talk about for free yeah through the apple public beta so both the developer and public betas are out now let's go ahead and jump into what's new all right so first up you're going to see a number of new pop-ups throughout the operating system first of all when you go over to your like side widget view you've got a refreshed

Widgets page where apple confirms that uh that is actual the there's a text for jiggle mode it's not just called anything else it is officially called jiggle mode you're also gonna get a new welcome pop-up whenever you try to edit your home screen for the first time and then finally as you saw at the very beginning of the video a welcome to app library page where apple's sort of just telling you hey there there's actually a lot more than you

Probably thought that changed with your iphone so we're gonna give you a quick tutorial about how to manage that but of course way more exciting for us than just a couple of welcome screens is the addition of the clock widget now i'm double clocking it out here let me know if you guys are double clocking it as well i actually i need to hide that in the app library because guess what i don't really need that anymore now that the clock widgets here so you can check it out in your widgets view you've got the option for just a city right here which is

Probably gonna be the most popular then you can also do a world clock in case you're interested in taking a look at cupertino tokyo sydney and a bunch of places at the same time even cool that it will dynamically change the clock face to light or dark depending on the time of day there and then this one which i think was also featured heavily in apple's keynote the the actual world clock expanded one so i can drag that over here and show you that it's actually on my home screen and it's functional now we were talking about this for a long time

And beta 3 is when it's finally here and that brings us to some other widget changes on the left is beta2 on the right is beta3 you can see right here clearly in the screen time widget it's been adjusted not only was this super low resolution like that's not just my camera that's actually like a 720 or 480p image it doesn't look that great at all apple's adjusted the size so it actually makes more sense and like properly shows you your apps so now if you were ever

Wondering why screen time wasn't being tracked on your widget well it should be now and you also probably noticed this looks a little bit different at the top of my screen that is a revamped music widget but also yeah a revamp music icon now this is something apple did not show in the keynote we actually had no idea we were even supposed to be expecting this and for those of you curious the music icon actually isn't the same as it was in the past i know there's been sort of a consensus

Even i retweeted something that was like it looks just like ios 7. it looks just like ios 8 but it actually is a little different so it isn't wrong to say this is literally a new music icon you can see in ios 7 the gradient went one way and i was eight they they flipped it and then in ios i guess a 8.4 nine and beyond when apple music came out they made it look like that it was like all right looks all right and then apple of course switched today back to this orange icon and a lot of

People were wondering is this a bug is this intentional i think it is definitely intentional just because it's not an old icon apple's reverted to it's something new entirely and this also changes inside of the music app as well like the ui somebody actually did a color picker to figure this out it's a slightly different tint in ios 14 than it is in ios 13 which apple changed as well so there's been a lot of changes inside of the music app some subtle

Some really important some somewhere in between although i do think this icon right here the apple music for artist one would have been so much more appealing uh why apple hasn't given that to everybody and just artists i don't know but uh i guess that's the best we can do for now but yeah here's the new icon what do you guys think of it i know there's been a lot of opinions out there about it i mean i actually like it better the white was always really bland for me i like the orange accent there perhaps a

New icon was to signify some more significant changes inside of the music app because you can see there are brand new icons right here just like in the photos app there are icons in ios 14. apple has now brought those they're a really nice touch to like more clearly see exactly where you want to go if you know your brain recognizes that image before it actually reads the word you can see the font has also been changed as well but this part is pretty much identical to how it was before maybe some ever so slight differences but

Broadly it's the same and also in the music app now there's a new way to share not only to instagram that was introduced in ios 13.6 but on ios 14 beta 3 to snapchat so watch what it does it creates the story pretty much identically to how it does in instagram now it'll say open and it pretty much does what you'd expect it creates that really cool looking blurred background that is actually a video you can see it's a video by that little section down there but yeah it plays it animates and you can show all your

Friends that your music tastes is just uh incredible that you are listening to the best music on planet earth alright and one more thing in the music gap one last magic trick probably the coolest of the bunch here so you know when you're playing a song and then you close out of the music app you decide to kill it and then you go back watch what happens on ios 14 beta 2. oh nothing's playing you know that you've seen that before i think you probably know where this is going now now when i

Tap and play this on 14 beta 3 go to the middle uh apple's gone a step further rather than just retaining the song that's been playing check this out go back in takes just a second not only does it keep that last song in there it also retains the time not making the stuff up very very cool whatever the music team has been doing i mean major props to them it may just look like a new icon but it's really so much more underneath on the home screen your page dots are a

Little bit lower now like i get it because in the previous beta 2 it was more centered now it's just really low it's almost like apple's planning to add something else down there that they haven't just yet and they're making room for it because it almost seems like if you squash those icons together you could fit like another row of icons if you wanted especially with that being so low now and now for one of the biggest changes we've been waiting on for what feels like

Forever it's the iphone storage glitch so that's been corrected so there's no longer an absurd amount of system so this is beta2 obviously it's still got that there but now and even on my iphone 11 pro that's off camera i can confirm that beta 3 fixes that which is sick because it was really annoying that i was running out of space quite unquote even though i didn't even have my iphone like three quarters full if you're one of those big mamoji fans out there you know you could throw a crown on or in ios 14 and beta 3 you could throw on

A different style mask so this is the new one right here just for quick comparison old one had more grooves and i shouldn't even say old because they're actually they're existing next to each other right now that one looks more like a traditional mask i would say this is more of those face coverings you probably see made by like nike or adidas it definitely looks a little bit cleaner to me and i think i'm actually gonna leave that on my character for the time being looks pretty nice and another change that apple made to widget

Is especially for the old design ones when you go back to this view and then scroll down you can see that when you're in jiggle mode so it's like a giveaway that's the actual term but you've got a new section right here and it actually shows you clearly that you can customize before you'd have to hit edit it was a bit confusing now you can just hit customize and it really outlines where your old widgets are and where your new widgets begin there even appears to be slightly more space than

Before but uh yeah i mean they still look pretty outdated compared to the really good looking new widgets but i do like this design better and i like that apple shows you an edit button there because before you can't even tap and hold here you actually have to tap and hold here and then go over here to edit anything if i go ahead and take a screenshot just like that and then tap on it and the trashcan icon up here if i tap on it on both devices you can

See it's centered on beta 2 and it's down here at the bottom on beta 3 which is actually probably a little bit easy to grab especially if you have one of these larger like 6.1 inch iphones or newer so now it's at the bottom of beta 3 where before it was there also new is a new option for hand washing reminders not only can you have it on your apple watch when you're actually washing your hands for 20 seconds which is a really cool feature to me i actually haven't upgraded watch os 7 yet but i

Think i'm going to do it soon specifically for that feature because it's so helpful and then down here is the hand washing reminder setting that's new where it will remind you after you return home if you haven't washed your hands if your watch hasn't detected that for a couple minutes it can actually remind you which is again pretty cool like apple's thinking outside the box here in the translate app on your iphone there's an on device mode apparently that doesn't work or hadn't worked i should

Say until beta 3 but now the on device translation mode actually will work properly so you can test that out if you incorporate the shazam functionality which allows you to identify pretty much any song that's playing it's a service that apple actually acquired you can see them now really fully integrating it into the iphone sometimes it takes a long time sometimes it doesn't so if i tap on play on both of these you can see this one looks like this now on ios 14 beta 3. this is actually technically running

But when it fails it just gives you a pop-up and says hey we didn't discover any currently playing media but that looks really really nice obviously you get the same result on both but the interface i mean that is really really good looking this is what i think we've been waiting for is like proper native shazam integration it's always felt half baked but now it's getting really good also after updating the ios 14 beta 3 taking my apple pencil off and putting it back on i got this new splash screen

On ipad os 14 let you know scribble smarter hand written notes and switch tools with a gesture are here you can go ahead and take your pencil and hit continue and then apple obviously walks you through this now i believe this part isn't new they've had this since beta 1 but the onboarding interface is a little bit different and a couple of other things i just wanted to note on here autocorrect seems to be really bad for me so if you're trying to type a bunch of stuff and it's just not working a lot of you on twitter have said the

Same thing autocorrect not only on beta 3 but also in beta 2 has been uh terrible like there's no other way to put it like i'm having to retype words pretty much every time i try to type anything so just a heads up there that when i was 14 i don't know what apple has changed but it doesn't seem like it was for the better and then if you're on an older device you could be freaking out after updating because you're like where is 3d touch 3d touch is completely gone so there's a bug where apple had to remove it but it's in the release notes that they

Did that intentionally so yes you are gonna have to get used to haptic touch only so if you're on iphone 6s 7 or 8 it's gone now but apple says it's coming back so don't fret it's gonna be okay um it's just gone temporarily but i know that could definitely be concerning if you weren't expecting that in general though guys it really seems to be coming together well like we're already on beta 3 apple is still tweaking a lot of stuff i would say it's been a really fun beta cycle from the new uh

Same fun as if it's over no we still got probably at least three or four more other betas with some significant changes to come but definitely leave your feedback on what your experience has been like down below and of course submit feedback to apple letting them know how your experience has been so they can actually fix bugs because unfortunately just leave it in the comments section of an i update video it's fun but it won't get anything changed so that's all for now if you guys enjoyed the video drop a like down below hit subscribe for more

This has been ios 14 beta 3. i'll catch all of you in my next video
