iOS 14.7 is now available for download. Compatible iPhones can install the new version of iOS immediately, which adds interesting improvements. These include support for the Battery Pack with MagSafe announced last week, the addition of air quality to Maps, and more changes. iPadOS 14.7, watchOS 7.6, and tvOS 14.7 are also available.
iOS 14.7 available for download with all these improvements
With the release of iOS 14.7, Apple puts an end to the great intermediate versions of this operating system. We will surely see minor updates from now on , fixing bugs and making small modifications until the release of iOS 15. And maybe even beyond, as the company is used to lately.
The notes of this new version show interesting news. To begin with, iOS 14.7 is necessary to be able to use the Battery Pack with MagSafe. Remember that it is compatible only with the four iPhone 12 models, as they are the only ones with a MagSafe charging system.
The next most interesting improvement is the one that brings air quality to Maps. Spain is among the countries that receive it , as well as Canada, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Korea. This functionality is also incorporated into the Weather app with iOS 15 .
The rest of the improvements are minor. Such as the option to combine credit limits between different family members with Apple Card, an option that is not available outside the US . The Home app now lets you control HomePod timers. And the podcast library lets you choose between watching all the programs or just the ones we follow.
Bugs fixed and probable security patches
At the same time, iOS 14.7 incorporates fixes to common errors. Apple has provided a list of fixes for the following problems:
- Button to share an Apple Music playlist might not appear.
- Some Apple Music playback in Dolby Atmos and lossless would stop.
- The replacement battery message might not appear when restarting an iPhone 11.
- Error in that the messages written with a Braille display showed wrong information when composing an email.
These bugs have already been fixed. As for security patches, Apple has not released any support documents so far. The company usually does this when a software version fixes them and the public version is already available.
This ensures that there is a solution to the security problem so that users can download it as soon as possible. Thus eliminating the risks for your devices . Finally, it should be remembered that Apple has made security updates independent of those of the system, a way to push the latest measures to the user.
