iOS 14 Beta 8 – More New Features

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

Hi everyone aaron here for zollotech and ios 14 beta 8 has been out to developers and ios 14 public beta 8 has been out for a couple days as well and i want to talk about more new features that were found in this particular update not that i just found but some of you as well now also i want to talk about ios 14 gm and when to expect ios 14 the public version as well as what to expect at the event on tuesday whether that be iphone 12 or more so i'll cover that toward the end of the video

Now the first new feature is finally here it's something we were promised from the beginning and that is default browsers so you can change your default browser by going to settings and maybe you want to use chrome for example as long as the app maker has updated their app you can do this so if you go to chrome for example you'll see we now said we now have a default browser app and so it says safari we can change it to chrome so it's up to you what you want to use

Now keep in mind default browsers on ios are basically reskinned versions of safari apple only allows webkit which is their browser for security reasons so chrome is just a reskinned version of safari basically same with firefox and the others now they may change this in the future but that's currently how it's set up also we should see this come out to email clients soon as well so if we go down to gmail for example you'll see there's sort of a setting here that's not there so

It looks like they're going to update this soon and we should be able to see it i tried different email apps from spike to spark to outlook and none of them are there so and hey you'll see here all of these different email apps i tried them out and none of them have default settings set up yet for that so hopefully we'll see that pretty soon you'll see here's outlook it's just not there so they need to update their app to allow that and then we'll see it now in the contact

App there's something very minor that's new but let's go into that now if we go into contacts on both phones on my iphone 10r on my left here i have ios 14 beta 7 and i have ios 14 beta 8 on the 11 pro max and as you can see on the right right here where the phone is or the the actual phone icon it says call on beta 7 it says work so they've changed it it's not a big change but work and then call now the first time you open this it will actually say work

On beta 8 and then it will switch to call so it's a small update it's very minor but someone noticed that so i thought that was pretty interesting so if i close it out go back in and you'll see now it says work and then it switched to call it's very fast and it's just something that's new not anything really incredible but something that's different now you can use shortcuts with bedtime and there's some interesting options here so if we go into shortcuts

And then maybe i want to scroll down let me find maybe turn bluetooth off when i go to bed i want to use that shortcut we can go to our shortcut options go to our options here and you'll see it says show in sleep mode this is not here on ios 14 beta 7. you'll see on beta 7 it's not there so you'll see it says show in sleep mode and then what we can do is on our ios 14 beta 8 device we'll turn it into sleep mode by tapping the little bed here go to the lock screen turn it back on

And you'll see that we actually have shortcuts tap on the shortcuts and now we have the option to turn bluetooth off when it's there so we just press and hold that the seal shared this with me one of the viewers of this channel so i really appreciate that and so he helped me out found that i thought it was really great you can actually use it with everything from wi-fi to all your other shortcuts as well it's sort of there if you have multiple devices you enable it on one it will

Kind of carry over to your other device so it will show up over here now on beta 7. so if i go here you'll see i'm already in sleep mode turn the screen off turn it back on go to shortcuts you'll see it's there so it's in the code it's just not physically there in the shortcuts app so they changed it a little bit so it works properly on the beta 8 devices so it's kind of neat that it's there now another new thing is maybe we connect our airpods or you connect powerbeats pro to your phone

You'll see all of a sudden your airplay icon will start to blink it doesn't do this in beta 7. so you'll see it's just blinking there it just stays solid in beta 7. so it's a small physical change but i thought it was kind of nice looking and so it's there now you may have noticed if you watched my previous video on what was new with beta 8 that going into jiggle mode for example so maybe we'll just go into jiggle mode here we'll

Hold settings and when i canceled that before i had to press done now i can just swipe up a reboot actually fixed that in fact when i opened an app it would slide in from the right it was kind of a weird animation going on it's almost like your animations were turned off and you had to physically press buttons a reboot actually solved that problem so i'm not sure what that was possibly a bug and so it's not happening anymore but it was when i first installed

Beta 8. now also as far as new features this is very minor but if you have a phone with multiple lenses maybe you switch to the second one and you drag the haptic feedback is a little bit different here it still had it before if you did this but previously the haptic feedback when scrolling through the wheel changing focal distances was actually a little bit different so they've updated that maybe made it a little less prominent so you feel it a little bit less but it is something that

Has been updated it seems now under widgets i noticed something with the news widget so if i scroll down you'll see that i have the huge news widget still on the 11 pro max there's an interesting behavior i've noticed so let's go ahead and try and add another one so if i go into news here we'll go down to news for example and then scroll over you'll see that i don't have the large news widget however if i go back and then i delete the large news widget

Then i go to add it again under news you'll see that it's returned so if i add it it disappears from being able to add a second one that's a behavior i noticed it's a little bit new now finally a feature that was promised with ios 14 when they first announced it is finally here if you use apple carplay and what that is is thanks to matthew mccarthy for pointing this out but if you're using apple carplay and you use the home screen you can now use google maps with it instead of apple

Maps so as you can see here this is what it looks like and it doesn't currently work with waze but it works with apple maps and google maps so if you have that you can have it on the home screen previously you actually could only open it full screen you couldn't just have it on the home screen also now this may have been here in previous betas but no one seemed to point it out so if it's been there before let me know in the comments below but it seems to be

New in beta 8. so let me know what you think of it if you're using it already i'd love to hear from you now there's a couple things i get asked regularly can we still have a blank home page and yes actually you can so on the iphone 11 i'll just demonstrate how you do this so press and hold on an app maybe the camera go into jiggle mode keep holding move the app slightly and then just tap all of your different apps so i guess we'll just carry these all across here and then this will just bring all these

In with us so i'll keep tapping here once you have all of your apps drag them to the next screen maybe put them down here now let's drag them over here so we'll put them on this screen and now we have a blank home page swipe up and it locks it in so now you can have a blank home screen if you want to you still can in previous betas it didn't work now it's working again so if you want to enjoy the wallpaper you can do that now now i wanted to clear one thing up as far as a feature that's in ios 14 and

That is the translate feature within safari so maybe you're on a web page that's not in your native language and you want to be able to read it well you tap on the double a's here translate to your language or translate to english in my case and it translates the web page and it works really well now if you're not seeing this this seems to be only available in the united states so as long as you're in the united states it should work it may work in other places as well but the person i was talking to that wasn't seeing it was in

The uk so i just wanted to clarify that if you're not seeing that hopefully they roll that out in the future by the time it's released but at least in the beta it's only working it seems like in the united states let me know if it's working for you though in the comments below now we're still waiting for spatial audio i get asked when is spatial audio coming is it working while the setting is still there currently it doesn't seem to be working so we're waiting for apple to update it

And maybe we'll see that update with ios 14 gm and with gm i would expect it after the event on tuesday so if we go into the calendar here on tuesday we have that apple event on the 15th and that's at 1 pm eastern time and so after that we should see ios 14 gm i would also expect them to announce the final release date of ios 14 that day which i would expect probably on the week of the 20th i've said this before it could be later but i would expect it then

And who knows what apple will do maybe they'll roll it out then it could be later but usually that's how they do it so expect them to roll out ios 14 gm on the 15th and then a final version the following week that's usually how apple does it so as far as that goes then we'll see spatial audio maybe we'll see an airpods firmware update and at that apple event originally many people were saying we won't see an iphone 12 launch however on the youtube channel from apple they've actually

Started deleting iphone 11 videos and i don't think they would do that unless they were going to show iphone 12. so maybe some of the sources are wrong this time those who normally have pretty reliable sources of course we'll have to wait and see but in the past we've seen new iphones we've seen new apple watches along with the next version and maybe lower prices for the older ones are replacements as well as new ipads so it's a two-hour long event maybe we'll see it i really hope we see iphones as

It would be nice to see it right away but let me know what you think will happen in the comments below now of course if you'd like to get your hands on this wallpaper i'll link it in the description like i normally do and if you haven't subscribed already please subscribe and if you enjoyed the video please give it a like as always thanks for watching this is aaron i'll see you next time you
