While many of these iOS 14 features might feel new Apple iPhone users, those familiar with Android devices could be feeling deja vu. Here’s a list of all the new Apple iOS 14 features that Android already had.
With iOS 14, Apple introduced a new Translate app that’s designed for use in real-time conversation. It can translate between 11 languages, including English, Mandarin Chinese, French, German and Korean. As of March 2020, Google‘s 14-year-old dedicated translate app could .
With the new operating systems, the revamped iPhone ($699 at Apple) and iPad ($340 at eBay) home screens will include widgets, which let you see information like the weather on your home screen at a glance. Prior to the announcement at WWDC, iPhone users could only have apps on the iPhone home screen. But widgets, which contain more information and are more functional than app icons, have been a mainstay feature on Google’s Android since its inception in 2008.
Apple’s App Clips let users preview “small parts” of apps quickly without downloading them. This can come in handy when trying to pay for takeout or parking, since App Clips is compatible with Apple Pay and . Google introduced a similar feature, , in 2016. Instant Apps gives apps their own URL so users don’t have to download an entire app for a single transaction, like buying concert tickets for example.
Another part of Apple’s redesigned home screen is an App Library that organizes your apps into groups and lists. With the new home screen in iOS 14, users can also “hide” apps from their main home-screen. This is similar to Android’s app drawer, sans the grouping features.
Apple Maps cycling directions
The updated Apple Maps app will provide ways to travel in a more eco-friendly fashion in iOS 14 and WatchOS 7. The dedicated while taking into account elevation, whether the route you take its busy or quiet, and if you’ll encounter any stairs. While Google Maps doesn’t factor in stairs, there has been the option to select “cycling” since . When I tried it on my Pixel 3 ($474 at Amazon), the step-by-step directions offer a look at elevation on a trip, too.
Apple also announced a phones already have the ability to float videos over other apps., which will allow users to be able to watch a video while using other apps. The video will shrink and be able to float anywhere on the screen. It can also be swiped away and the video’s audio can still play. While the audio doesn’t continue to play if the video is swiped away, Android
Wind Down mode
Another new feature announced Monday was a Apple Watch ($399 at Apple), lets you set a desired bed time and wake-up time, and puts your phone into Do Not Disturb mode. There are also options to add shortcuts for meditation or playing relaxing music. Google doesn’t have a dedicated app for this, but there is a way to set up a .that helps users get ready for bed. The feature, which works for iPhone and

Pixel 5 renders based on leaks showcase hole-punch camera and rear fingerprint sensor – MobileSyrup
Three-dimensional CAD renders of the highly anticipated Pixel 5 have leaked online.
According to the renderings, the phone measures in at 44.6mm long, 70.4mm wide and 8mm thick or 9.5mm thick if you include the rear camera bump. This means that the Pixel 5 features slightly smaller dimensions than the iPhone 11.

If these renders are accurate, the design for this upcoming flagship is poised to be a bit odd in a few ways, but generally, the phone looks similar to the still-unannounced Pixel 4a. The front of the Pixel 5 sports a display with substantial bezels surrounding it. The screen also has a hole-punch camera, which means Google will be ditching the Motion Sense technology featured in the Pixel 4 series.
On the rear the handset features a square-shaped camera module similar to the Pixel 4 series, with the flash at the top and not the bottom. The device also sports a rear fingerprint sensor instead of an in-display scanner like other modern flagship Android smartphones.
Additionally, the handset features a USB Type-C port on the bottom with two speaker grills flanking it. It’s likely the Pixel 5 will sport aluminum sides and a glass back, but it’s unclear what material the phone is made of. Pigtou in collaboration with relatively unknown leaker David Kowalski shared the renders showcasing the front and the back of Google’s still-unannounced next flagship smartphone.
Previous rumours suggest the Pixel 5 will feature a Snapdragon 765 chipset and a 5.78-inch OLED display with QHD resolution.
Similar to past years, Google is expected to launch the Pixel 5 in October. As with all leaks, I’d take this with a grain of salt and wait until Google officially unveils its flagship, especially given it’s only a CAD render.

Here's your first real-life look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, and it's gorgeous – Pocketnow
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 recently appeared on the official Samsung website – by mistake, apparently – and ever since, we’ve been drooling over how beautiful it looks. Well, we finally have more to feast our eyes upon. Tipster Jimmy Is Promo (@jimmyispromo) has shared a couple of live images of the Galaxy Note 20 (or a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra) in a glossy black finish, and it looks gorgeous.
The leaked images focus on the camera module, and it looks almost exactly the same as the one we saw in the leaked renders last week. There are two regular cameras and a rectangular periscope lens opening stacked vertically, while the second column has the LED flash and what appears to be an assembly of ToF camera and laser autofocus below it.
The rear panel appears to be made entirely out of glass that curves around the edges, and there is a metallic frame to keep it all together. The camera bump is huge and appears to have a slightly different surface texture a contrasting finish, much like what we saw on the iPhone 11 series. We also get to see the S Pen with a matching color scheme.
Samsung's Galaxy Note 20 might release on August 21 – MobileSyrup
We’ve known for several weeks now that Samsung is expected to reveal its next phablet smartphone during a livestreamed Unpacked event on August 5th. Now, we’re starting to see leaks related to the smartphone’s specific release date.
According to South Korean publication ET News, the Note 20 is expected to release in South Korea on Friday, August 21st.
Given the smartphone typically also releases in North America and globally at the same time as South Korea, it’s likely Canadians will also be able to get their hands on the phone on this date.
Rumours surrounding the Note 20 indicate the smartphone is set to feature vertically-aligned rear camera array that looks strikingly similar to the S20 Ultra’s back shooters. A render of the handset in a unique-looking ‘Mystic Bronze’ colour recently leaked as well.
Regarding specs, the Note 20 is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor — a processor that hasn’t been released yet — an S Pen with additional features, new camera functionality that includes 100x zoom, and a QHD+ 120Hz screen. The display can also run at 120Hz when it’s set to QHD+, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S20 series.
There are also rumours circulating that Samsung plans to release the smartphone in two sizes, including a standard 6.42 inch Note 20 and a larger 6.97-inch Note 20 Ultra.
With the Note 20’s official reveal only a few weeks away now, it’s likely we won’t have to wait long to see if these rumours are accurate.
