Recently, Apple announced that it will hold the 2020 WWDC on June 22. It will be a more intimate, virtual developer conference, and there will be no audience. In it, the Cupertino firm will present the latest software that will reach iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.
As usual, users are very excited about updates to versions of iOS 14 and of iPadOS 14. Everything seems to indicate that Apple will incorporate new very interesting functions. But in addition to these developments, the company with the bitten apple logo should also focus on improve stability and correct some problems that their mobile operating systems have been dragging for some time.
Apple lives in a constant search for perfection. So we are completely sure that the firm will continue to correct problems with iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. Although perfection in the software, as well as in other areas, is simply unattainable. Technology is being renewed at a very fast pace and there will always be something to polish or perfect. So we are very happy to say that … every year iOS and iPadOS will be even better!

The problems that Apple should fix with iOS 14 and iPadOS 14
Despite the vast majority of users being very satisfied with the performance and experience offered by the latest iOS and iPadOS software versions for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, there are still some things the company should improve with upcoming and upcoming updates.
Therefore, we are going to launch a few suggestions on the fly to improve some aspects in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. Hopefully Apple will take it into account!
1. The user interface of calls is very intrusive
IPhone users have been asking Apple for a long time to improve the user interface of calls. When a person calls you, the call fills the entire screen and can be somewhat awkward. Thus, this call does not allow you to take any action on your phone unless you reject it. If it is already a very unsightly system per se, the fact that it does not allow other actions to be carried out is despicable and inconsiderate.
Rather than reflecting a full-screen call, Apple should implement a notification-like banner system so that iOS users can continue to use their phone while a call is ringing.
Fortunately, there is hope, as there is a similar precedent. Users were clamoring for Apple to come up with a new design for the interface of the Volume HUD. In previous versions of the iOS operating system, the volume HUD appeared in the central part of the screen, taking up a lot of space and being very intrusive. So Apple redesigned the volume indicator with iOS 13 and placed it in the upper left corner of the screen. Will the same happen with the user interface of calls?

2. Notifications are catastrophic chaos
With the landing of iOS 12 on iPhone and iPad, Apple introduced the grouped notifications. A system that automatically groups the notifications of each application in the same block. The system itself is very good, it helps to keep an order and also if you do not like it, it can be configured and customized from the phone settings. What is the problem, then? That the grouped notifications came with the same design language as in iOS 10.
There is nothing wrong with the current design of the notifications, it is a minimalist design and visually very attractive. But when the notifications begin to group and to group between the different applications, they make the result provide a overwhelming feeling of overwhelm.
When you click on a group of notifications, they are displayed so you can see them all. This makes the rest of notifications from other apps not visible. On the other hand, sometimes we have individual notifications across multiple notification groups and let’s face it it’s a bit catastrophic.
There are many design concepts for iOS 14 that offer a much more attractive alternative.

3. The search for emojis should be present in all apps
Searching for emojis on the keyboard, a function popularly known as Emojification, is only available in the Messages app. This feature allows users write a word on the keyboard and replace it with an emoji automatically with a single tap on the screen.
Emojis have opened up a whole world of possibilities when it comes to expressing our emotions through the Internet. Damn, in fact they have evolved so much that they now move as they detect our facial expressions with the arrival of the Animojis and the Memojis.
But … there are currently so many emojis that sometimes it takes too long to find the emoji we are looking for.
The emoji search feature should be available system-wide, allowing developers to make their apps compatible with it.
4. Camera controls should be more accessible
Over the past few years, Apple has greatly improved the camera functions of its iPhone and iPad mobile devices. One of these improvements is found in the insertion of the video quality controls in the application itself.
These controls appear in the upper right corner of the camera’s user interface and allow change video resolution and frame rate. But they are such tiny controls that they are difficult to access. Many times it is required to press on the screen three or four times to achieve press the button, especially those users with larger fingers.
5. Application icons in list form
This is one of the functions that we will probably see with the arrival of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. A leak claimed that Apple intends to offer an interface design with apps in list mode, and we love the idea!
It would be very convenient to be able to search for applications in alphabetical order, especially if you can customize the order and if the list mode function can be enabled or disabled from Settings. Hopefully!
