Safari gaining native translation in iOS 14, better Apple Pencil support

The news: iOS 14 will be upgrading the Safari app on iPhone and iPad with some significant new features, according to 9to5Mac (85.8% accurate).


  • Safari is gaining native, on-device translation that is processed offline by the neural engine
    • It could extend to other apps like the App Store, too
  • In Safari on iPadOS, the Apple Pencil will be better supported with markup support

Our take: As somebody who consistently reads content written in languages other than English, this on-device translation is going to be amazing. I could live without better Apple Pencil support, but am glad that is coming, too!
