Despite the fact that many people were disappointed because the company didn’t release a new iPhone, the presentation was as usual epic and one particular iOS 14 feature impressed many people all over the world. So what is this feature and why is it so special are the things we are going to discuss today.

Since now Apple allows you to be as creative as you want.
