Just a week after the release of iOS 14.0 to the public, Apple has today released iOS 14.0.1. This appears to be a bug fix release to address a small number of issues introduced in 14.0; including one where changing your default email client or web browser would be reset when you restarted your device.
As we have not had the opportunity to test iOS 14.0.1 ahead of today's release, we are unaware at this time if it brings any fixes to the issues for VoiceOver, low vision, and braille users that were introduced in iOS 14.0. If we learn of any, we will update this post. If you identify any fixes, enhancements, or regressions in your own use of iOS 14.1, please let us know by adding a comment below.
Here are Apple's full release notes for today’s iOS 14.0.1 update:
- Fixes an issue that could cause default browser and mail settings to reset after restarting your iPhone
- Addresses an issue that could prevent camera previews from displaying on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
- Fixes an issue that could prevent your iPhone from connecting to Wi-Fi networks
- Resolves an issue that could prevent sending email with some mail providers
- Addresses an issue that could prevent images from appearing in the News widget
Apple has also today released iPadOS 14.0.1, watchOS 7.0.1, macOS Catalina 10.15.7, and tvOS 14.0.1.
The release notes for macOS Catalina 10.15.7 state that it includes the following changes:
- Resolves an issue where macOS would not automatically connect to Wi-Fi networks
- Fixes an issue that could prevent files syncing through iCloud Drive
- Addresses a graphic issue that may occur on iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2020) with Radeon Pro 5700 XT
Again, we will update this post if any fixes, enhancements, or regressions for blind and low vision users are discovered. Please let us know if you identify any during your own testing.
