Basic Android functionality is coming to the new iOS 14 – widgets will finally arrive on iPhone.
Although the main highlight from Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference was the announcement of the new ARM-based chips, another functionality will make millions of iPhone users happy. The new upgrade to iOS 14 will finally bring widgets to the home screen. iOS 14 is expected to be released later this year.
Another new feature is the possibility of organizing apps into a more manageable view and getting picture-in-picture video. What’s more, users will be able to change the size of widgets on the home screen. Widgets display more information, so there will be more capabilities to personalize the main screen.
In the mobile world widgets are nothing new. Android has had this feature since 2008 as a mainstay, and even the old Windows-Phone allowed to resize important apps according to your needs.
Apple’s iOS is known for its user-friendly interface, but until iOS 14 every app had to stand in a strict grid. Now users will be able to customize and adjust the order of the apps and improve the user experience by themselves.
It’s extremely important for all the app owners to replicate their Android widgets on iOS. The market is so competitive that having a widget or not having it, may be a complete game changer.
