MacVoices #20207: Josh Centers Takes Control of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 (2)

We start the second part of our conversation with Josh Centers, the author of Take Control of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, with a review of some of the privacy and security features Apple has built in to iOS 14. Some of those include video and camera use indicators, limited photo roll access by default, and why the new clipboard access notifications correct a potential weak spot in security. Other new features include sleep tracking, improvements to Notes, Voice Memo organization, a translation app, and a lot more. Then we switch over to iPadOS 14 and talk about  which of the iOS 14 features are and are not included, why Scribble may be a productivity game changer, and get Josh’s advice on whether these updates should be installed on Day One, or whether you may want to wait a little while.
