On June 22, Apple hosted their annual Worldwide Developers Conference, virtually. During the event, the tech company revealed the new features added to iPhones when updated to iOS 14. Users will gain the ability to set a default mail app or browser app, a new lightweight software program called “App Clips,” and a redesigned home screen.

Similar to that of Android based phones, Apple users will now be able to add and pin widgets with real-time updates to the top of their home screens. Users will also be able to create a “Smart Stack” of widgets, which uses on-device intelligence to find and launch the right widget based on time, location, and activity. Home screen s will also be more more customizable, giving users the ability to display widgets that are tailored to their interests, like work, travel, sports, entertainment, and more.

Widgets and customizable home screens are nothing new to Android users. Twitter, of course, poked fun at the update with  Android vs. Apple iOS14 memes.
