Following last week’s release of iOS 14 to the general public, Apple released a bug fix update today in the form of iOS 14.0.1. Today’s update brings fixes for iOS 14 home screen widgets, default app settings, and more.
Apple has also released iPadOS 14.0.1, watchOS 7.0.1, macOS Catalina 10.15.7, and tvOS 14.0.1.
Last week, 9to5Mac highlighted an apparent bug in iOS 14 that caused your default browser or mail app setting to reset to Mail or Safari when your iPhone or iPad rebooted. Today’s update to iOS 14.0.1 resolves that issue, ensuring that you only have to set your default app preferences once.
Apple also says that today’s release of iOS 14.0.1 includes a fix for the Apple News widget that caused images from appearing, as well as bug fixes related to WiFi connectivity and email sending with some mail providers. For iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users, there’s a fix for an issue that could have affected camera previews.
