There's a whole gallery of widgets with the ability to see the weather forecast, what song's playing, news headlines and more. Instead of downloading a dedicated application for every takeaway order or cinema ticket purchase, Apple is now letting you access the most important part of the app straight from the homescreen. Only general objective web browsing apps, like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, for example, will be able to be chosen as default web browsing options. So, while viewing apps, if you no longer want to use certain ones, you can delete them easily.

But if you're looking for style, there's some of that, too, with more watch faces including a chronograph style with a tachymeter, plus colour filters you can run over your photos to have them suit a specific Apple Watch colour band.

Because it's not the final build, Apple advises that users should not download the iOS 14 beta on their primary smartphone. New options embody residence display screen, translation, app, picture-in-picture video and app library.

It's interesting to note, though, that we can see in iOS 14 the next feature Google Android will "borrow" from Apple.

Siri has undergone a redesign and will no longer - thankfully - take up the entire screen when activated but will rather appear as a small notification at the top of your phone, similar to how other notifications appear. The setting screen of the function reads: 'Sound Recognition should not be relied upon on in circumstances where you may be harmed or injured, in high-risk or emergency situations, or for navigation.' .
