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.

App Clips

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.

Widgets

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.

User privacy

On iOS 14, apps will be required to ask users for permission to track them across apps and websites owned by other companies. Later this year, the App Store will help users understand apps’ privacy practices, and you’ll need to enter your privacy practice details into App Store Connect for display on your product page.
