Apple unveiled iOS 14 during its WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) on June 22. This new iOS version has brought along some of the most requested features for iOS. And is arguably one of the biggest changes to iOS for the past few years. For starters, iOS users can now finally add widgets to the home screen. A feature that has been around since the beginning on Android smartphones. Another highly requested feature to make its way over to iOS 14 is the option for users to select a default browser and email client.
Nonetheless, along with new features, most software updates also bring along a few bugs and issues. And iOS 14 does not get a free pass from these common issues as well. As more users install the iOS 14 update on their devices, bug reports on social platforms have started to roll in. Fortunately, these bugs are often fixed with subsequent software updates. Therefore, in this post, we’ve rounded up all the bugs and issues that are reported to appear on devices running iOS 14.
Note: The bugs listed below are updated regularly and we will let you know if and when a certain bug has been fixed.
