A video has surfaced online showing what could be Apple‘s upcoming iOS 14 running on an iPhone 11 Pro Max. The video, exclusively revealed on the blog 91mobiles, shows the iPhone running an entire new multitasking screen that takes after the functionalities of an iPad.
Apple’s multitasking area and RAM management issues in iOS 11 were cleaned up in iOS 12, but much to a smartphone user’s disappointment, the rolling out of iOS 13 saw many of these issues and bugs reoccur. In this leak, the suspected iOS 14 cleans up the messy multitasking aspects with fresh UI features such as being able to flick up and put away open apps.
Other new features include a redesigned multitasking area layout, which shows thumbnail tiles in rows of two instead of iOS 13’s stacked carousel of apps. Furthermore, graphic designer and Apple enthusiast Ben Geskin has showcased what he calls the “internal app switcher settings,” showcasing the option to change how your multitasking area functions.
There is currently no concrete information on whether the video above is absolutely legitimate, or whether that UI is from iOS 14. We can expect an official update from Apple at its WWDC 2020 event, in which Apple is expected to unveil its budget iPhone.
In other news, Apple has filed a patent for an all-glass wraparound iPhone screen.
Ok, I got more info. This is not fake and not a jailbreak tweak. This iPad style multitasking switcher (called Grid Switcher) on an iPhone is activated in internal settings on early iOS 14.0 internal build.
