A new Shazam music recognition feature was added to Control Center as part of the iOS 14.2 beta released to developers on Thursday. Some of them have also warned that their apps may result in some glitches on iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 or not just work after installing the latest updates.

Apple pushed out iOS 14 just yesterday and already today it has released the iOS 14.2 beta to developers.

If you've ever anxious when things you've been talking about in a room full of pals is now showing up as an advert - you can rest a little easier because Apple's new iOS update is here to solve any panic. Last year's rollout of iOS 13 was mired with problems, not to mention software bugs. While using iOS 14, you might have noticed an orange or green dot on the upper right of the screen.


Finally, Apple will also now let you hide apps from your home screens, and instead place them in an App Library. You will also be able to resize the photo by pinching on the video and dragging it.

If you're unsure, and if you have one or more apps that simply have to work, it's worth getting in touch with the developer and asking how confident they are that it's ready for the update. The control centre should show either an orange or green dot, as well as a message indicating which app is responsible. From there you should see an option for Default Browser App; click on it.

You can enter the traditional full-screen call experience by tapping anywhere on the banner, allowing you to access other functions like hold, the keypad and more, but it's a great feature for quick calls.


The new iOS 14 directs cyclists along bike lanes, bike paths, and bike-friendly roads, where available. This is the biggest change to the iOS home screen since the initial release. What it signifies is that there is an app that is using your phone's camera or its microphone (with your permission, of course). On the iPad, you can take advantage of the app's new sidebar.

I've spent the past few months perfecting my shortcuts, and now all I need to do is tap a single button on the lock screen to turn off my TV, turn off my lights and play white noise on my speaker as I head to bed. This upgrade automatically organises all of your apps into one simple, easy-to-navigate view, and even intelligently surfaces apps that may be helpful at the right moment.
