As we are talking about new systems, which are yet to be released, a lot still changes in this testing phase – and we are here to bring these new features with others that we have recently discovered.

Check out our eighth compiled below with the news of future Apple operating systems!

What’s new in the Music app

At once, Apple renewed its icon the Music app and the look of the widget (both now with a colored background instead of white).

It supports multiple sizes and individual cities in analog mode.

Wash hands

There’s no point in Apple Watch simply monitoring if you’re washing your hands properly, isn’t it? It is also necessary to remind everyone to wash their hands, especially when arriving from the street.

The good news is that the new version of the system has this option. If you get home and don’t wash your hands in a few minutes, the watch will remind you – obviously, you need to activate this notification in the Watch app on your iPhone.


The three main new features (at least speaking of interface) in iOS 14 are, without a doubt, the new widgets, the Apps Library and the option to hide some application pages.

Because Apple will try to explain everything to those who are running iOS 14 for the first time:

ECG and irregular rhythm notifications

As we said, recently Apple released the ECG and irregular pace notifications for Brazilians. The novelty required the installation of watchOS 6.2.8 and iOS 13.6 – whoever was running the beta versions of iOS 14 and watchOS 7 was left out of the game.

Today, Apple fixed this in beta 3 and everyone now has access to these two important health features.

Headphones audio level

For those who are concerned about the volume of the audio in their headphones, we have good news. On iOS 14, it will be possible to track this measurement in real time.

For this, it is necessary to go on Settings »Control Center» Customize Controls and add the option “Hearing”. Doing this, the next time you are listening to something through your headphones, you can open the Control Center to find out exactly their audio level.

MAC address

To understand this new feature shared by Apple in a support article, you need to explain what the MAC address is for and how it is used.

To communicate with a Wi-Fi network, a device must identify itself to the network using a unique network address called a media access control address (in English, media access control, or MAC). If the device always uses the same Wi-Fi MAC address, network operators (among others) will be able to relate that address more easily to the device’s network activity and location over time – that is, it is as if the address Fixed MAC serves as a kind of tracking.

To reduce this privacy risk, iOS 14, iPadOS 14 and watchOS 7 include a feature that periodically changes the MAC address that the device uses on each Wi-Fi network. This random MAC address is the private Wi-Fi address of the your device to that network – until the next time it joins a different address.

And on macOS Big Sur beta 3…

Yes, Apple finally updated that horrible battery icon in System Preferences! ??

In addition, the Music app icon has also been changed to conform to the new iOS / iPadOS 14 beta 3.
