US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Former journalist and start-up investor Josh Constine in his blog talked about what updates may appear in the iOS 14 operating system. Its release is scheduled for autumn 2020 – simultaneously with the new line of iPhone 12 smartphones.
Konstantyn claims that Apple is preparing to launch a new OS application with support for augmented reality for scanning QR codes. A program called Gobi will work with new types of tags – both square and round, stylized as brand logos.
In the files that Josh received from an unnamed source, QR codes were found to go to the pages of various products on the Apple website: for example, Apple Watch and the movie Star Wars: Rogue One in the iTunes Store. Constantine also found a code to display the Starbucks coffee chain loyalty card.
The Locator application, which replaced the Find iPhone app in iOS 13, will receive new sounds and vibrations in the next version of the operating system. Apparently, “Locator” will “play” with the user in some kind of “hot-cold”: when approaching the device that the user wants to find, a certain melody will start playing, which will change as you move away from the desired gadget.
In iOS 14, a major update of the main screen is also expected: in particular, it will be possible to apply dimming, blurring and other effects to the desktop wallpaper. In addition, users will have the opportunity to install third-party browser and email client as the main ones.
Earlier, the FBI reported that employees of the department managed to unlock the iPhone without the help of Apple representatives, and 9to5Mac reporters published instructions on how to train a smartphone with Face ID to recognize a user in a mask
