Apple releases iOS 14.7 with support for the MagSafe battery pack
Today, Apple has released iOS 14.7 for all supported iPhones, though it has not yet released the corresponding iPadOS 14.7 update for its tablets, which is weird because these usually go out together. In any case, as you read this, the iPadOS 14.7 update may already be on its way, but it was not at the time of writing.
iOS 14.7 brings support for the MagSafe battery pack, which the company quietly released a few days ago. This is compatible with iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.
The new software also introduces an Apple Card Family feature that allows you to combine credit limits and share a co-owned account with an existing Apple Card user, and allows the Home app to manage timers on the HomePod. In addition, weather and map apps receive air quality information for Canada, France, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea and Spain. Finally, the Podcasts library now allows you to view all shows or only watched shows.
The update also includes a number of bug fixes that you would expect to have to do with the Share playlist menu item missing in Apple Music, Dolby Atmos, and Apple Music lossless audio playback that stops unexpectedly and a battery service message disappears after restarting on some iPhone 11- models and Braille display invalid information while composing e-mail messages.
It’s certainly not the huge update, but it’s probably good enough to install as soon as you can. To do so, simply go to Settings> General> Software Update on your iPhone if it has not asked you to update already.
