iOS 14 Leaks: List View for Apps, Settings App May Support Custom Wallpaper Packs, New Apple TV Remote, and More

Apple plans to introduce a new screen that allows users to view all of their installed apps in a list in iOS 14, with several sorting options available, according to code seen by 9to5Mac. A basic version of this feature already exists on the Apple Watch, as shown below.

The list will presumably be in alphabetical order by default, with the report claiming that users will be able to set filters such as recently used apps or apps with unread notifications. This will provide users with a third way to view their installed apps beyond swiping through home screen pages or dragging down on the home screen and using the search function.

In a separate report, 9to5Mac claims that there is a possibility that third-party wallpaper packs will be supported in the Settings app on iOS 14, with Apple planning to introduce several new wallpaper categories to help sort through them. It is already possible to set any image as a wallpaper on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but this feature would provide users with countless wallpapers to choose from right in the Settings app.

iOS 14 is also expected to include new HomeKit features like face classification in HomeKit camera video streams, a new accessibility feature that can possibly provide haptic feedback for important sounds like fire alarms and doorbells, Alipay support for Apple Pay, and integration of Apple's "Shot on iPhone" challenges in the Photos app.

Last, 9to5Mac has uncovered evidence of a new version of the Apple TV remote in iOS 14, but no further details are known at this time.

Apple knew damn well what we wanted when we asked for a home screen redesign. And did they give it to us? No. Just this sad excuse for a "redesign"
Apple is taking it slow, measured steps and I appreciate that. iOS 14 sounds quite appealing to this point. Clean up the lingering 13.x issues and add in a few features, that would work for me

After reading this same story on a different site, I just realized what this means.

No Apple, I do not want an android app drawer in iOS.

Can we make it so the Watch displays the time all night in nightstand mode? I leave my watch in one of those cheap cradles that uses the charging puck that shipped with the watch, and would like to be able to use it as a clock.

I can't be the only person who would want a feature like this...

Here’s one thing I wish Apple would do: if you use folders, when you long press on an app (either inside or outside of a folder) it would give you an option to move to folder and then a list of folders. The current method of having to drag an app with your fingers into a folder is not a great experience. I also wish there was a place in settings where you could easily re-arrange apps in folders. Again, having to drag an app with your finger between pages within a folder is cumbersome. Half the time I end up dragging an app out of a folder because of my fat fingers. They could make this much better.

Certainly not what you would think for home screen design.

Overall though iOS 14 sounds very promising

Android does this...... App drawers. It's high time Apple does this, because my home-screen is a cluttered mess.
