Apple today released iOS 14.7 to the public today. This is likely the last major point release of iOS 14 from Apple before iOS 15 is released to the public in September this year.
iOS 14.7 does not bring any major new features or improvements to the table. It is a minor bug-fixing update that fixes some underlying issues with the OS and introduces some minor new features such as support for Apple’s MagSafe Battery for iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Hopefully, the update should also contain a fix for the battery drain issue that many iPhone users have been experiencing after updating their device to iOS 14.6.
iOS 14.7 will also show HomePod timers in the Home app on your iPhone. This option will show up right below the HomePod alarms in the Home app. Prior to this, one could only set timers on HomePod using Siri.
iOS 14.7 can be downloaded on all compatible iPhones and iPads by going to Settings -> General -> Software Update.
Alongside iOS 14.7, Apple also released the final version of watchOS 7.6 for all compatible Apple Watch models. The stable version of tvOS 14.7 is now also available.
Here are the complete iOS 14.7 release notes:
