iOS 14 was by far the worst software upgrade I've ever experience with an Apple device, hands down. Ruined my iPhone 7.

Going forward, I'm never going to upgrade an iOS device more than 2 versions from what was pre-installed.

desktop PC mode with with monitor/keyboard/mouse, etc.
Apple has zero reason to do that with an iPhone. If you want that use an iPad and a magic keyboard.

split screen multitasking, pen input, desktop PC mode with with monitor/keyboard/mouse, etc.
Split screen on a smartphone is pointless, 2 tiny windows on a smartphone isn't appealing, pen input also pointless on a small device, no need for pc mode for a mobile phone. people wont even use these features 99% of the time.

do we really have a choice?
Sure you do. I have automatic downloads turned off and I was not forced to update to iOS 14. I waited until iOS 14.3 before I decided to update from iOS 13.
