Apple has released a new firmware that’s designed for use by people whose iPhones aren’t running iOS 15. The new iOS 14.8.1 release brings with it security fixes, the company has said.
The new update, which is available for download from the Settings app right now, is available for any device that isn’t already updated to iOS 15.
Those devices can choose which update they want to install next – iOS 15 or iOS 14.8.1.
iOS now offers a choice between two software update versions in the Settings app. You can update to the latest version of iOS 15 as soon as it’s released for the latest features and most complete set of security updates. Or continue on iOS 14 and still get important security updates until you’re ready to upgrade to the next major version.
Apple reportedly fixed a number of bugs in this update as well, including those relating to audio, ColorSync, Continuity Camera, CoreGraphics, GPU Drivers, IOMobileFrameBuffer, Kernel, Sidecar, Status Bar, Voice Control, and WebKit. As ever, we’d suggest making sure that users update to this latest version if iOS 15 isn’t something they’re interested in.
It isn’t clear how long Apple will continue to release updates for iOS 14, but it’s already giving people the option not to update to iOS 15 altogether. Could iOS 14 live longer than expected?
