IOS 14.0.1 – A Major Upgrade Recommended

by | Oct 5, 2020

IOS 14.0.1 is recommended for iPhones 6s and later.  (Check Compatibility)

IOS 14 is a major update to the iPhone device.  The initial release was available on September 16.  On September 24, Apple released a bug fix as IOS 14.0.1.  This version is recommended.  Our Senior Tech recommendation comes early.  The marketplace is loving this release.  

Here is a partial list of some of the new capabilities found in IOS 14 that we like:

  • Homescreen Widgets – Get app information like weather and new on your home screen.
  • App Library – Allows you to unclutter your homescreen(s). 
  • Picture-in-Picture – a long time coming, but an audio-only option adds clever flexibility
  • Compact UI – For calls and Siri.  They no longer take up the whole screen.
  • Messages – New capabilities to pin chats, @mentions and more
  • App Clips – access an app’s core functionality without having to download it. Useful for one-off needs
  • Maps – cycling directions, EV charging spots and curated sight and restaurant recommendations
  • Translate – Access real time spoken translations in 11 languages.  I hope we get to travel again soon.
  • Magnify app – Using your iPhone to magnify an object is now available on an app.  

See Apple’s IOS Announcement site for more details.  

I  found no issues with the update and the process took about 40 minutes.   I also found no issues in the week following the release.
