Apple revealed several updates for its products at the 2020 edition of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), its annual conference that started today today (22). Aimed at developers, this is the first time the event has been held online because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The new iOS 14, the next major software update for the iPhone, offers a completely new design for users. The layout of the home screen allows you to use the apps without starting the full version, in addition to facilitating the categorization of the apps to view more information, available in the “App Library”.
Another novelty of the operating system are the widgets on the home page. They will have several sizes, so that the user can choose the amount of information he wants in each one. With Smart Stack, it will be possible to slide through widgets and choose what you want to see at that moment.

Siri also has news with the option to translate text and voice. It will also be possible to pin conversations to iMessage, in addition to new Memoji features.
For computers, the company announced that macOS has a completely new design. One of the highlights is the Safari browser, which will work more integrated with other devices of the brand. According to Apple, the browser is the fastest in the world, being 50% faster than rival Chrome.
Apple has also announced that it is placing the iPhone Control Center on the Mac, which makes it easier to access a variety of controls. The company’s goal is to make computer software more compatible with that of the iPhone and iPad.
