In the latest news, Apple has closed the verification channel for the iOS 14.7 system, which means that users of lower versions will only be able to upgrade to iOS 14.7.1. At the same time, users who are already the official version of iOS 14.7.1 will not be able to downgrade.
iOS 14.7 was released in mid-July, and iOS 14.7.1 was just released last week. The changes in iOS 14.7 include new support for Magsafe magnetic external batteries, and the main changes in iOS 14.7.1 include the accidental failure of Touch ID iPhone unlocking Apple Watch and the repair of a very important security vulnerability.
iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 were originally planned to be the final version of iOS 14 (because iOS 15 is not far from us, the current development focus is on the new version), but because the bug is more obvious, a revised version has to be released quickly.
At present, Apple has not yet started the Beta work of iOS 14.8, and it is still unknown whether this version will be available in the end.
For the iOS team, the top priority will be iOS 15. Apple is currently testing and polishing its milestone operating system updates, including iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, and watchOS 8. The final stage of testing is being carried out before the fall release.
If nothing else, iOS 15 will be back to meet with you next month. What system version is your iPhone currently in?
