iOS 14 to reportedly include an all apps screen




We're just a few months away from WWDC, the event where Apple will unveil the next versions of iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS. And the leaks are starting to come in hard. Yesterday, a report outlined all of the watchOS 7 features, and it seems that today is all about iOS 14.


9to5Mac reported today that in iOS 14, there will be some significant changes to the home screen. There's going to be a new page that will let you see all of your apps, rather than your home screen layout as it is now. In fact, all you can do now is arrange your icons from left to right, and top to bottom, and that's it. Perhaps an all apps list could finally be leading the way toward some additional customization options.


Most other operating systems, like Windows and Android, have some way of offering shortcuts to the apps that you use most, while there's an all apps list for everything else. On iOS, you sort of have to just move those most-used apps to the main screen and move the rest to secondary screens.


The all apps list seems to mainly be about sorting apps differently though. For example, you'll be able to only see the apps that have pending notifications, or you'll be able to filter by recently used. It will also work with Siri Suggestions, suggesting apps based on your location, the time of day, and so on.


The report also noted new gesture support, which are meant to be used with the new Smart Keyboard with Trackpad that's allegedly coming alongside the new iPad Pro.
