Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2020
A rumor on Weibo claims that Apple will not rename iOS to iPhoneOS. But this means that the new iOS update would debut as iOS 14. The next-generation iOS version will include a redesigned interface that would bring widgets to the home screen and feature an upgraded app grid. The incoming call interface on the new iOS update will also no longer force you to a full-screen view, as per the rumors. This indicates that users would finally get the option to set a banner alert style for incoming call alerts. The experience would be in line with how people handle incoming calls on an Android 10 phone.
In addition to the new iOS additions, the tipster on Weibo mentions that Apple will bring a new iPadOS update with a redesigned Sidecar feature that was introduced last year to let users transform their iPad into a second display for their Mac computers. All of this is in addition to news about the launch of the iPhone 12.
