1. Home screen
On the Apple Watch, Apple allows you to see all the applications installed in the list. And similar features can be found in the iPhone in iOS 14. This list will allow users to sort alphabetically all applications installed on the iPhone. Perhaps, users will be able to configure view filters to view categories of applications. Such as recently used applications or applications with unread notifications.
iOS 14 also provides a widget option on the home screen. It allows widgets to move around freely like application icons on the home screen. There is no detailed information about this function yet. But the code in iOS 14 shows that when scrolling to the right, it differs from the widget settings available in the Today section of the notification centre.
2. Call popup
Whenever a new message arrives on the iPhone, the system page occupies the full screen. Whenever watching a video or playing a game it will be completely blocked. Suddenly suspended due to a sudden call.
3. New message feature
Apple is testing a series of new features in iMessage. This new feature can be added to the iOS 14 update. Like Slack, there is a new mention system that allows users to tag contacts with their name (such as @ Eric). In busy group chats, this feature may mute the conversation. But you will receive push notifications, including live quotes.
Apple is also developing a feature that will invalidate iMessage once it is sent. And returning it will be visible to both parties.

The app may integrate with Apple stores and Starbucks. It indicating that users can perform certain actions. Such as picking up an iPhone in the Apple Store to view product information. The QR code tag in the region will trigger the AR experience. And iBeacons or Apple’s upcoming AirTag can be triggered.
5. Set the third-party application as the default application
Starting with iOS 14, Apple may allow iPhone and iPad users to install third-party mail, browser, and music apps as default settings instead of Apple’s own apps.
This change will allow apps like Google Chrome and Gmail to become default apps on iOS devices. So clicking on a link or email address won’t open Apple’s own apps. The change will also allow the music app used on the Home Pod to be used with Siri. Which is currently limited to Apple Music.
Apple criticized its applications for an unfair advantage over third-party applications because they are installed by default. It cannot be replaced, and are usually more visible in the App Store. So they are considering this initiative. It is worth noting that Apple is still making these changes at the planning stage and may not be able to implement them.
