Editor’s Desk: WWDC goes virtual, Apple’s COVID-19 response, iOS 14 spelunking & more

The big stories this week were, of course, Apple’s cancellation of the physical WWDC conference in favor of an online-only experience, temporary closures of all Apple Stores outside of China and the company’s other COVID-19 responses. Beyond coronavirus, iOS 14 spelunking has revealed dozens of features we can expect from Apple’s upcoming annual software updates, including new Apple apps and support for the company’s unreleased premium over-ear headphones. Without further ado, dive deep into our curated coverage of all things Apple.

Welcome to yet another installment of iDownloadBlog’s Editor’s Desk weekly column in which we round up various stories that were published on the site from March 9 through March 15.
