However, the OS versions are relatively new, rendering some to malfunction including the latest home screen app icon customization feature for the Apple Devices. 

The most valuable multinational technology company, Apple, has given its users what they wanted and have asked for in the past years, particularly with the widgets and home screen personalization for iOS.

Apple’s iOS 14 brought a massive lot of new features and upgrades for all compatible devices from the company, including the iPad who shares the same version, which only goes by the name, iPadOS. The public release of Apple’s iOS 14.3 beta has dropped on Monday, December 14, with a refresh to the existing iOS released this year.

The third version of the iOS 14 release has been available for beta testers since late November, bringing bug improvements and better integration to Apple smartphones, now available for the public. The popular Apple smartphone which was recently released, the iPhone 12, would enjoy most of its features as it is the device most compatible with the operating system.
