The New Feature in IOS 14.3:

If you want to see a workout video, you can watch it live on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, complete with metrics from the Apple Watch on the screen. The types of workouts available include High-Intensity Interval Training, Indoor Cycling, Yoga, Core, Strength, and others.
- Support for AirPods Max
As is known, time ago Apple has released their latest product, i.e headphones called AirPods Max. Now, this OS update supports the management of AirPods Max.
Users can set to activate high fidelity audio, Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, and many more.
To activate the ProRAW setup shooting mode, users set it in the camera application settings in the upper right corner.
The ProRAW format is designed for those who prefer to shoot in RAW but also want to take advantage of Apple’s image pipeline data such as noise reduction and multi-frame exposure adjustments.
If iOS 14.3 is already installed, and you want to use ProRAW features, there are several steps to activate these features:
- Open Settings
- Then press Camera
- Click Format
- Then on Apple ProRAW, slide the switch to the right
- Siri Update
Siri is a digital assistant on Apple devices. Siri on iOS 14 is able of replicating all kinds of sounds, from animals to alarms, musical instruments, and more.
You can ask Siri questions like “What does a humpback whale sound like?” or “What does a lion sound like?” to have Siri play the sound of a whale or a lion.
Today, Apple adds hundreds of different voices. On iPhone and iPad, Siri will also display an image of an animal or device, then after playing the voice Siri links it to more information from Wikipedia.
- Ecosia Search Engine
Unlike most search engines, Ecosia allows users to automatically fund tree planting when a search is performed. Now, thanks to iOS 14.3, the Ecosia search engine can be activated as the default search engine in the browser.
- New Section in The Health App
As of iOS 14.3, Health App is updated with the ability to track pregnancy, breastfeeding, and contraceptive use in Cycle Tracking. Cycle Tracking itself is intended to better predict menstrual and fertile periods.
