The Cupertino-based tech giant notes that Siri can translate over 65 languages and users in India will be able to translate speeches from English to Spanish. This feature will likely get improved with future iOS 14 updates.

Additionally, Siri will get a new voice in English with the latest iOS version, as introduced with the iOS 13 update last year. Users can change this via Settings > Siri & Search > Siri Voice.

Other new features

With iOS 14, iPhone users in India can send and receive email using addresses composed of Indian script. Apple has announced that for the first time, users can also download and stream Apple TV+ shows over cellular networks.

Along with the aforementioned updates, Apple will bring several new features such as Picture-in-Picture (PiP) support, Translate app, App Library, and more with iOS 14.

Similar to iOS 14, the new macOS software version will bring animations to the  Messages app when users send a greeting in one of 23 India local languages. 

"For example, send 'Happy Holi' in Hindi, and Messages automatically adds confetti to accompany the greeting," Apple explains. The macOS Big Sur is said to be a significant redesign of the desktop operating system by Apple.
