These popular enhancements will definitely enrich your experience, but my favorite iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 tips are the ones you must find.For example, you can nowUse the new default app settings.
Below, I will guide you how to use the nine best hidden features found in iOS 14. This list will definitely continue to grow, so check out more gems.
Set your default email or web browser
That’s right, Apple eventually gave up some control over the default apps. Currently, this feature is limited to email applications and web browsers. So, for example, you can designate Chrome as your preferred browser or Outlook as your preferred email application.
App developers will need to update their iOS 14 apps for new default assignment options to appear, so if your favorite app is not ready yet, you may need to be patient.
First, please open the “Settings” application of your iPhone or iPad, and then scroll down to the bottom to list all installed applications. Find the mail or browser application you are looking for, and click it.If it has been updated for iOS 14, you will see Default browser application Either Default email app; Tap it and select the app you like.
There is currently oneWhen you restart the device. Apple knows and promises to update it in the future.
Now, I know that Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Outlook and Hey email have been updated to include this new “default” switch.
Get rid of the app home screen quickly
What’s new in iOS 14Just like an application drawer, you can abandon countless home screens, which are full of applications that you rarely use. Instead of going through each application one by one and sending it to the application library, you can hide the entire home screen panel with just a few clicks.
Long press an empty area on the main screen to trigger the edit mode. Next, click the page indicator and then click the check mark under each panel you want to delete. This will not delete these apps, but move them only to the app library, which is more or less hidden in the app drawer that you can access at any time.
Clear newly downloaded apps from the home screen
You only spent all your time organizing the home screen, adding widgets and keeping only the most important apps, and all your hard work was destroyed by the new apps you just downloaded. When installing apps, don’t let the iPhone display the apps on the home screen, but send them directly to the app library until they prove they are worthwhile.
turn on Set value > Home screen Then choose Application library only At the top.You can easily find recently downloaded apps in the app library Recently added Category, when you view it, it should be the folder in the upper right corner.
Search emoji keyboard
Finally-yes, the voice should be very loud “FINALLY!”-you can search for what you want in the emoji selector. Launch the emoji keyboard as usual, and now you will find the search bar at the top of the keyboard.
The hidden photo is now actually hidden
The function of hiding specific photos or videos has been used in iOS and iPadOS for a while, but there is a big problem-these photos you no longer want to see are stored in the “Hidden Album” in the “Photos” app too easily found it. On iOS 14, Apple added the option to hide the album, so you can really hide the photos and videos you want to keep, but don’t want others to see them.
Open it by going to Set value > photo And make sure Hidden album The switch is off. (Yes, off: Enabling this setting means that “hidden albums” will be displayed in the “Albums” tab.) All the content you hide in the camera roll will still be saved in the device and iCloud Photo Library, but you will not be able to Use Unless you return to this setting and turn on the “Hide Album” function, please set it first.
Watch YouTube videos in picture-in-picture mode
The iPhone now has one of my favorite iPad features:Used to watch videos or use during FaceTime calls. It works as follows. No need to stay in the app, for example, if you watch your favorite game streamer on Twitch, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen to leave the app, and the video will automatically shrink to a floating window. You can move this thumbnail video, or if you just want to listen to the audio, you can even hide it from the edge of the screen.
The YouTube app does not currently support Picture-in-Picture, but you can solve this problem by the following method: Start watching YouTube videos in full screen mode in Safari, then swipe up to return to the home screen. The key is that you must put the video in full screen mode before exiting the app. If this does not work for you, please try to request the desktop version of the website before you start watching the video.
If you don’t want to trigger PiP when you leave the app, please turn off the automatic activation function by the following method: Set value > general > Picture in Picture And close it. After that, PiP will only be used when you click the icon in the play video.
Fake eye contact in FaceTime
Last year, we first saw FaceTime’s eye contact feature in iOS 13 Beta, but it was never released. Well, it’s back to iOS14. Essentially, even if you stare at the screen, your iPhone or iPad will make you look like you are staring directly at the camera.
This is a subtle feature, but it should make the person on the other end of the call feel as if you are paying attention.
Open it by going to Set value > Video conversation > eye contact.
Tap twice or three times to trigger an action
A new accessibility feature called Back Tap allows you to trigger system functions, such as multitasking or Control Center, or just tap the back of the iPhone two or three times to launch a shortcut.
Find features in Set value > Accessibility > touch > Rear faucet. Select the number of clicks you want to use, and then you will see a list of actions that can be initiated.
For example, you can tap three times on the back of your phone to take a screenshot or activate Siri.
When I read this feature for the first time, I thought it would be too easy to prompt it by just putting the iPhone in my pocket or on the table. But this is not true at all-phones seem to be good at determining the click mode before activation.
Use Apple Pencil to paint in any text field on iPad
The iPad has a new feature called Scribble.Basically, it converts any text field into usable, Your iPad will automatically convert your handwriting to typed text.
If you are in the middle of taking notes and get a new iMessage, you can pull down the alert and use the “Quick Reply” field to write your reply, and then go back to write notes without having to put down the Pencil or activate the keyboard.
For users who use Apple Pencil a lot, Scribble should speed up many tasks that usually have to be slowed down by switching between the stylus and the keyboard.
These newer operating systems have many other features.And it does not require a long installation time.Just make sure Ensure that the process goes smoothly.
