You can now download iPadOS 14.7 final IPSW links as well as macOS 11.5 Big Sur final version. Here are the details.
Apple has released both iPadOS 14.7 and macOS 11.5 to the public following a protracted beta program. The releases also come a couple of days after Apple also made iOS 14.7 available to the public, too.
The iPadOS 14.7 release includes some changes that users will no doubt look forward to, including fixes for the Podcasts app as well as the ability to manage HomePod timers via the Home app, too. Users can install the new update via the Settings app and we would suggest doing so at your earliest convenience, too.
The full rundown of changes according to the release notes:
Apple Card family adds the option to combine credit limits and share one co-owned account with an existing Apple Card user
Home app adds the ability to manage timers on HomePod
Podcasts library allows you to choose to see all shows or only followed shows
Share Playlist menu option missing in Apple Music
Dolby Atmos and Apple Music lossless audio playback may unexpectedly stop
Braille displays could show invalid information while composing Mail messages
Audio may skip when using USB-C to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapters with iPad
The new macOS 11.5 update can be installed via the System Preferences app and brings with it improvements to the Podcasts app’s Library tab as well as fixes for the Music app’s inability to count tracks when they were played.
There’s also a fix for a bug that caused some smart cards not to work properly on Macs running Apple’s M1 chips.
