Apple has today released iOS 14.6, the newest software update for iPhone with new features and bug fixes. While iPad also receives the same with the release of iPadOS 14.6.
The release does bring several new features, the support for subscriptions to Podcasts and more. For Apple Postcases, channels and individual shows can now choose to implement an ad-free subscription model for their listeners.
Recently released AirTag iPhone accessories also gain some new refinements. It is now possible to add an email address, rather than a phone number, to an AirTag. So when put in ‘lost mode’, a person can scan the AirTag. They can then make contact via the email address listed. It is still possible to add a phone number.
Apple Music also gains support for Spatial Audio and Lossless audio, announced just a couple of weeks ago. While it brings support, it won’t be possible to access the new audio formats until June.
Other fixes and refinements also include:
Unlock with Apple Watch may not work after using Lock iPhone on Apple Watch
Reminders may appear as blank lines
Call blocking extensions may not appear in Settings
Bluetooth devices could sometimes disconnect or send audio to a different device during an active call
iPhone may experience reduced performance during startup
To update iPhone or iPad, tap on Settings > General > Software Update.
