iOS 14 introduced some major changes to iPhone's Home Screen appearance with the addition of Home Screen widgets and the App Library. You can now have widgets of various shapes and sizes displaying real-time information on your Home Screen rather than just a bunch of apps and folders, giving the Home Screen a completely new look. So where do all the apps go?
In addition to adding routing for electric vehicles in Apple Maps, Apple has finally added routing for cycling as well in its iOS 14 update. Whether you are a weekend cycling enthusiast or commute to work and run errands on your bike, the new feature should prove helpful. You can now map out a route and see the elevation change along the way before heading out. Here's how to do it on iPhone:
Widgets are one of the most noticeable and popular new features of iOS 14. They allow you to personalize your Home Screen like never before. In fact, with the new App Library, your Home Screen can take on an entirely new look, filled with widgets and completely devoid of apps. iOS 14 also lets you customize your app icons but alas, for some reason they have not yet added the ability to customize your widgets, other than their size.
Mac users may have noticed there is no built-in way to change where macOS (formerly iTunes) writes backup information. This means every time an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is backed up to the computer using Finder, it automatically uses the local drive. Rest assured, it is possible to tell your Mac to put backups on an external drive. Once the steps below are implemented, all iOS backup data will be saved to the new location.
Running out of gas while on the road is obviously something nobody wants to do, and it is easily avoidable since gas stations are ubiquitous in most populated areas. The same cannot be said for charging stations for electric cars, as they are much fewer and farther between. iOS 14 has brought Maps up to speed by allowing it to communicate with electric vehicles, offering peace of mind to road trippers traveling in their Teslas, Bolts and LEAFs.
