iOS 14 to Introduce New Homescreen List View with Siri Suggestions

As the folks over at 9to5Mac continue to dig deeper into the recently leaked iOS 14 code, we keep learning more and more about Apple’s next big iOS release. It appears that in addition to rich system-wide support for mouse cursors, iOS 14 will also introduce a new homescreen list view with Siri suggestions and more.

According to the source, the new homescreen view in iOS 14 will allow users to see all of their application icons in a list view making it easier for them to see all of their installed apps at once.

Users will be able to sort the list using filters like unread notifications, or recently viewed to give them a better overview of the apps they use most and least often.

Finally, this new list view will include smart suggestions powered by Siri to suggest which applications you might be searching for based on time of day and location. For instance, the list view might recommend that you open the Music app when you arrive at the gym.

These changes seem designed to make it easier for users to find applications that they might have misplaced on their homescreen. It’s also similar to the List View option that exists in watchOS currently.

The leaked iOS 14 code has also revealed some great new features coming to Apple Watch Series 6 and watchOS 7.
