Reconstructed facial and muscle systems are also more realistic with the Memoji and Memoji stickers. Now there are thirteen coatings in which you can put hairs on the side of your Memoji face, allowing you to represent your look. 3 new Memoji stickers are also added which allows you to give your friends a hug, a fist bump, or even a blush face.

iOS 14 Languages

Just by pressing the microphone button, you can start saying anything to it and the feature will translate the said sentences or words for you. There is also a Conversation Mode available that works with the downloaded languages when you don’t have an active internet in your device. The translate feature currently works with 11 languages combinations.

Final Words

Although iOS 14 is not bug-free, it would be far away from the complications that we experienced when iOS 13 arrived. It really is one of the most impressive iOS updates in recent years. In this respect, it is best to wait a couple of days before creators catch up and fix the issues on iOS 14 with third party applications in particular.

Introducing that iOS 14.2 is now in beta, Apple has shocked everybody. Apart from quality testing (apparently for no particular reason), suddenly Apple began offering iOS and iPadOS betas separate version numbers relative to release, so it’ll be doubtful to get iOS 14.2 in a few weeks. In spite of all of the bugs, we still assume the designated bug patch iOS 14.0.1 to come earlier.
