News about iOS 14:
Are received new versions of iOS 14, there are relatively many updates. Without being distracted by the obvious improvements, we will try to focus on the implicit ones. Apple is constantly improving its systems.

About hidden functions iOS 14:
To select the default app in iOS versions higher than 14, a menu with the option to select has appeared. Thus, the function of selecting an application by default function appeared. More apps are not fixed, the only question is whether they are available in the App Store.
About tracking iOS users by websites:
Safari can now tell the user who is tracking activity and how. This is made possible by a new feature – privacy report.
When you click the Aa button at the top of the app, in the address bar field, a new list of options becomes available. At the bottom of this list is the “privacy report” button. When clicked, a detailed log for 30 days becomes available to the user. In it, you can view the number of activity tracking trackers. In addition, the list of blocked Safari ad trackers is also available.
About the Home screen:
Home screen editing mode is now available when you tap on an empty screen space. However, after receiving updates, you can now configure the device so that new applications do not appear on the screen. Otherwise, all the work on setting up the home screen with the usual arrangement of icons will be disrupted when installing a new application.
You can send them to the application library. And only then, if necessary, take it to the right place.
A new media format has been launched – in particular, ProRAW for images. This is possible in the latest Apple models: starting with the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.
