Apple yesterday released the iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1 update for all compatible iPhones and iPad. This is the first major point release of iOS 14 since its release in September. Major point updates of iOS tend to add new features but that’s not really the case with iOS 14.1. Below is everything that’s new with iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1.
The major highlight of the iOS 14.1 update is that it adds support for iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro which launch later this week. Apple’s change-log for iOS 14.1 highlights only one major change with the update — video playback support for 10-bit HDR10 videos on iPhone 8 and newer. Other changes are primarily bug fixes and stability improvements. Below is the full changelog of iOS 14.1 from Apple:
