Air quality information is now available in Weather and Maps for Canada, France, Italy, Netherlands, South Korea, and Spain

  • An issue that could cause Dolby Atmos and Apple Music lossless audio playback to unexpectedly stop has been fixed.
  • The battery service message that may have disappeared after reboot on some iPhone 11 models is restored.
  • A bug that caused Braille displays to show invalid information when composing Mail messages has been fixed.
  • A bug that could cause the share playlist menu option to go missing in ‌Apple Music‌ has been addressed.
  • A bug that could cause an ‌iPhone‌’s WiFi to stop working if connected to a WiFi network named “%p%s%s%s%s%n.” 

iOS 14.7 Issues

Apple Watch

iOS 14.7 can break the ability of iPhones to unlock an Apple Watch. Moreover, for enterprise users the fix is extreme. 

“When you have Unlock with iPhone turned on, unlocking your iPhone unlocks your Apple Watch as long as you’re wearing it. An issue in iOS 14.7 affects the ability of iPhone models with Touch ID to unlock Apple Watch,” confirms Apple in a support document. 

For consumers, Apple states that you will have to revert to typing the passcode on your Apple Watch every time you put it on.

”If you forgot your passcode, you need to reset your Apple Watch,” Apple warns. But the bigger impact is for enterprise users with Apple confirming that users will have to unpair, erase and set up their Apple Watches again. “

iOS 14.7 is available as a free software update starting today for iPhone 6s and later.  If you don’t receive an automatic update notification, you can trigger the update manually by navigating to Settings > General > Software Update.
