According to the feedback of many old iPhone users, their devices have received an iOS update from Apple over the air, which made them somewhat overjoyed.
Apple sends iOS security update to its old devices
It is reported that after the release of the stable version of iOS 13.6, Apple released an update to iOS 12.4.8 (16G201) for old users such as iPhone 6, 6 Plus. Although there are no new features, this is mainly a security upgrade.
The instructions given by Apple show that iOS 12.4.8 provides important security updates and is recommended for all users to install.
This update applies to iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, and sixth-generation iPod touch. These devices no longer support iOS 13.
Recall that the official version of iOS 14 is expected to be launched in September this year. In addition, the upgraded model remains the same as iOS 13.
iOS 14 and iPadOS 14: the public beta is out!
Developers have been able to try out the beta version of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 for about two weeks, then Apple has recently distributed the new software to everyone else. From now on, anyone with a compatible iPhone or iPad can try out the new features. This include the long-awaited home screen widgets.
Apple has recently started distributing the public beta of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. The rollout is still ongoing. So it could take a few hours or days for the update to become available to everyone. If you want to be part of the beta testers, you only have to register for Apple’s beta software program. And then follow the instructions to install the necessary beta profile on your iPhone or iPad.
The update to iOS 14 can then be carried out as usual via the system settings under General -> Software update. Before downloading, however, you should be aware that this is a not yet final operating system. There are still some bugs in the system. We do not recommend to install it on devices that you rely on.
iOS 14 offers a variety of innovations that we have already summarized in this article. The widgets that can be placed anywhere on the home screen are particularly exciting. The App Library allows a better overview of all installed programs. While Siri and incoming calls finally no longer take up the entire screen. With iPadOS 14, the iPad gets almost all innovations from iOS 14. But there are also exclusive features, such as the possibility to fill in text fields by hand with the Apple Pencil.
