Apple is expected to deliver the last major update for iOS 14: Version 14.7 can now be downloaded to iPhones and iPads, optionally via the integrated update function (in the settings under General / Software update) directly on the device. Alternatively, it is still possible to download and install the update on a Windows PC or Mac with iTunes or the macOS Finder. The download size of the new operating system version differs from device to device.
New features in iOS 14.7
iOS 14.7 adds support for Apple’s new MagSafe battery case to the iPhone 12, which is likely to reach the first customers soon – and which requires the new operating system version. With iOS and iPadOS 14.7 it is also possible to manage timers set on HomePods and to switch between all podcasts and only podcasts in the media library of the “Podcasts” app, which Apple announced.
New information on air quality is now also available for France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Canada and South Korea; it is integrated in the weather app and Apple maps.
The update is also intended to address issues with Apple Music, including a missing option to share playlists. A possible sudden stop in the lossless playback of Apple Music and titles with Dolby Atmos has also been fixed. iPhone 11 models are supposed to reliably display indications of a necessary battery change again. A bug in the interaction between Apple Mail and Braille keyboards has also been fixed.
Manipulated SSIDs should no longer be a problem
iOS and iPadOS 14.7 should also prevent WLAN SSIDs with certain character strings from being able to paralyze the iPhone radio interface – at least temporarily – when a connection is established. The updates should bring further security improvements, about which Apple should give details later in the evening.
