Yeah I think they’ve missed a trick with the widgets (or haven’t released the functionality yet)
For example, I was kind of hoping that the Music widget would allow you to control songs from the home screen but it doesn’t
I guess we’ll have to wait and see, given that WidgetKit is super new.
(If Only You Knew The Power Of The Dark Mode...)
Yh, so far they’ve removed all Interactivity within widgets themselves which is a big issue in my opinion and I’m kind of shocked that they have done that. This is why I can’t see the only widget i previously used on iOS 13 being updated because it relied on interactive buttons.
I’d assume interactivity will probably come with iOS 15 but it is definitely a shame we’ll have to wait that long
So far I’ve found the Big Sur Beta to be quite a bit more unstable than iOS14 has been. Granted that they are both beta’s. These are my findings, other milage may vary;
Safari is way to buggy to use (crashes out on webpages)
Music force-quits every five minutes it seems
The clock widget is still broken, the second hand resets each time you close and re-open it
MS Teams has not integrated well at all (Granted not Apples fault) and is hard to use
Other than that it looks and feels amazing, and I’m sure that the Public Beta will resolve most of these issues, or at least the next version will.
NOTE: You shouldn’t install a beta on your main device unless you’re prepared for things to go wrong and face issues regularly. You Should if you’re ok with that and want to help feedback the issues and get them resolved.
You won’t be able to restore a phone to iOS 13 backup from iOS 14 beta so ensure that you’ve backed up before you switch over and make a note of the time and date so you can select the right one later when you’ve reset the phone fully
If you’re using iOS 14 on your daily driver I would not update to dev beta 3 at the moment. There seems to be some weird behaviour where Monzo is functional when in the foreground, the minute it’s put into the background it crashes Can anyone else replicate?
