Customisable widgets: With iOS 14, Apple is putting widgets on the iPhone home screen for the first time, a feature Android users have had for years.

Another change is a feature called App Clips.

Other key improvements include a new compact interface for Siri and incoming calls (which up until now took up the entire screen) as well as picture-in-picture mode, which lets you watch videos while doing other things.

An App Library shows all of the apps installed on an iPhone in one place, both in an icon view and in an alphabetical list.
