Get ready for iOS 14.
iOS is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. With iOS 14, you can now use app clips to give users a quick way to engage with a part of your app at the right moment. New widget features let you offer even more value to your users, and the new widget gallery makes it easy for them to find what they need. ARKit 4 delivers exciting features for all devices with the A12 Bionic chip and beyond, while updates to RealityKit let you create even more realistic augmented reality experiences.
With app clips, you can make experiences from your apps discoverable at the moment a user needs them. App clips are light and fast, and are focused on quickly accomplishing a task — whether it’s renting a scooter, ordering takeout from a restaurant, or setting up a new appliance. They can be discovered and opened from a number of places, including Safari, Maps, and Messages, as well as in the real world through QR codes, NFC tags and the new Apple-designed app clip codes.
Easily build widgets using the WidgetKit framework and the new widget API for SwiftUI. Widgets now come in multiple sizes, and users can visit the new widget gallery to search, preview sizes, and place them anywhere on the Home screen to access important details at a glance.
ARKit 4 delivers new features for all devices with the A12 Bionic chip and beyond, while RealityKit enables a new level of animation and realism for AR experiences.
Development is even easier and more extensive with new tools in Core ML for model deployment, new models and training capabilities in Create ML, as well as additional APIs for Vision and Natural Language.
With a new compact UI, visual lists that display images and more details, and the ability for event suggestions to extract and surface content from emails and websites, Siri makes content even more readily available.
