Security is an important consideration with every new version of Android and version 14 will block the installation/sideloading of older Android apps that target older versions of the OS. To be more specific – Android 14 will not allow you to install apps with a targetSdkVersion lower than level 23 which corresponds to Android 6.

Google is also making a ton of system-level security enhancements, including runtime receivers and dynamic read-only code loading to prevent any possibility of code injection. Support for Credential Manager and Passkey is also built-in for easy authentication and password management.

Users will be able to scale system fonts by 200% and the operating system will also apply specific scaling for smaller submenu text items.
