Incoming calls won’t take over the full screen in iOS 14, claims leaker
iOS 14 will see Apple redesign the incoming call interface according to leaker L0vetodream who has shared a flurry of predictions ahead of Apple’s highly anticipated Worldwide Developers Conference later today, suggesting incoming calls will no longer completely fill the screen.
Shown in a concept created by Australian designer Jack Phillip, the prediction claims Apple will make incoming calls a whole lot less intrusive, allowing users to continue using their device as it receives an incoming call.
Despite ascetic changes over the years, incoming calls have always filled up the whole screen on iPhone. Craig Federighi, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Software Engineering supposedly spoke out about the incoming call UI after iOS 13 was announced last year, saying the company would “certainly keep it in mind for the future.”

Alongside the redesigned incoming call UI, L0vetodream dismisses earlier claims by Jon Prosser who suggested iOS could be renamed “iPhone OS” this year, adding that the forthcoming macOS update will offer huge improvements to Safari and that iPadOS will improve on handwriting with Apple Pencil.
