Latest iOS 14 Leaks Shows New Fitness App, Expanded Pencil Support, and More


Just a day before, 9to5Mac posted some details of the upcoming features on iOS 14 which were found in the iOS 14 code. And now, MacRumors is adding a few more leaks in the series. Although its not clear that whether all of these features will make their way to iOS 14 but they all seem to be something that the company wants to bring to the platform with a software update.

Out of many new features, first is a new Fitness app codenamed “Seymour” and possibly to be called Fit or Fitness on its launch. The report claims that this app will be targeting iOS 14, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14 and will be launched as a standalone app instead of replacing the existing Activity app.  The new app reportedly lets you download fitness videos with different workouts and activities that you can perform as the Apple Watch tracks your session. 

The next thing noticed by the publication is a new API called PencilKit that allows the Apple Pencil to be used in more situations. It will feature new OCR capabilities that will convert handwritten text from apple pencil into typed text. MacRumors says it’ll let you use the pencil to enter text in apps like Messages, Mail, Calendar, and others. Third-party developers will apparently get some form of access to PencilKit, too.

In addition to all of these, iMessage may also get some new features in iOS 14.  Apple is reportedly testing features like @-tagging contacts in group chats, unsending messages, a /me status update function, and the ability to mark messages as unread. However, MacRumors mentioned that these changes in the iMessage are just in the testing phase and may not make its way to the final release. 

At last, MacRumors has some information on Apple’s long-rumored object-tracking tags. According to the report, these tags are set to be called AirTags which will use CR2032 button batteries. The report claims that pulling a tab on the AirTag activates it and then it can be paired with an iPhone or iPad by bringing it close. However, the publisher notes that this is just a prototype based on AirTags and may not come live. 

Well, we have already seen the previous leak by 9to5Mac where the publication found an icon in the iOS 14 code that points of an over-the-ear headphone which might make its way in black and white variants. However, we will get confirmation on all of these leaks when Apple will unveil its iOS 14 after this fall.
