According to a new report from 9to5Mac, Apple are working on some new Safari features that will appear in the upcoming iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, which is expected to be announced at WWDC 2020.
The new report details that Apple are working on a translation service that will translate websites from the language of the website to your language. This translator will be built-in to Safari and will automatically detect the language of the website and translate it for you. You will have the option to read the website in the original language of the website.
This automatic translation service may not just be arriving to Safari. The report details that Apple are working on bringing this automatic translator to other apps such as the App Store, where the translator will automatically translate the description and reviews to your desired language.
9to5Mac says that the translator will be processed on-device, removing the need for the translator to require an internet connection. As with Apple’s privacy guidelines, it is expected that this translator will not send any data to Apple.
Alongside the automatic translator feature, the report also details that Apple are working on adding full Apple Pencil capabilities to the iPad in Safari. At the moment, you can scroll webpages with the Apple Pencil, but 9to5Mac say that iPadOS 14 will allows users to markup websites instead of just being able to scroll with the pencil.
That is all the report from 9to5Mac shared, but iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are expected to be announced at Apple’s WWDC 2020 conference that is happening on June 22nd.
