Apple released iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 to the public yesterday albeit a few hours later than usual. iOS 14 is a big update and Apple’s odd move to release it just a day after a Golden Master release means that despite the company’s best efforts, the release is bound to have some bugs and issues. If you are wondering what all bugs and issues have slipped past Apple’s QA team with the stable build of iOS 14, read below.
It has only been a few hours since iOS 14 was released to the public but iPhone and iPad owners have been reporting whatever bugs they are coming across while using the new OS. What’s interesting is that the iOS 14 Golden Master and the iOS 14 Beta 8 builds were the same. This is also the same build that Apple has released to the public earlier today. Below is a roundup of all the iOS 14 bugs that have been reported so far.
