Apple’s iOS 14 will be out later this year, and it comes with a cool but hidden feature that could be a game-changer for all Apple iPhone users’ privacy.
Apple iOS 14 takes our iPhone to a whole new world. There are hundreds of new features accompanying the upgrade. Many of which are immediately obvious, like the new Home Screen widgets and the App Library, pinned conversations and mentions in Messages.
iOS 14 is due to launch very soon, with a collection of cool new privacy features that are going to be truly game-changing for iPhone users. But one of the most critical privacy features in the new operating system is somewhat hidden.
Here are five of the hidden features you need to know about, as reviewed by Macrumors.
This feature is very useful for those who need help listening to their surroundings. Sound Recognition allows the iPhone to produce sounds like running water, a fire alarm, a dog barking, a baby crying, shouting, car horns, doorbells, and many more.
Mirror Front Camera
When you take a selfie with an iPhone with the standard Camera app, it flips the image so that it’s the opposite of the mirror image. In iOS 14, you can choose to force the camera to capture mirror image selfies.
All you need to do is to go to Settings, select Camera, and toggle on the “Mirror Front Camera” option. A lot of social networking apps use mirrored selfies, so many people are more accustomed to mirroring functionality than the flipped selfies that the iPhone uses.
FaceTime Eye Contact
The Eye Contact feature tweaks your FaceTime video to make it look like you’re making eye contact with the person you’re chatting with even though you’re looking at the iPhone screen. This update lets you “establish natural eye contact” while using FaceTime by changing the appearance of where you’re focusing.
This feature allows you to add details to the images saved on your Apple device. In the Photos app, swipe up on any single photo you’re looking at to see additional information and then tap on “Add a Caption” and type in whatever you want.
Hide App Pages
If you want to get rid of a page of apps for a cleaner home screen and usage experience, this feature is perfect for you. To do this, long press on the Home Screen, tap on the series of dots at the bottom and then uncheck whichever app pages you don’t want to see.
