Apple's recently introduced iOS 14 represents a major upgrade to the iPhone operating system. Many of the new features are designed to make the handset even more fun to use. As soon as all errors have been eliminated.

Yes, as sure as night follows day, there will always be problems with a newly released operating system as problems creep through the beta phase of its development.

To fix some of these bugs, Apple just released 14.0.1 for iOS and iPadOS.

For example, the update addresses are a bug that resulted in the default browser and email settings being reset after restarting the phone or tablet. New in iOS 14 is the ability to choose a default browser and email app instead of being tied to Apple's apps. Hence, for anyone choosing new default apps, it becomes quite annoying when the device just reverts to Safari and Mail. This update should fix this problem.

iOS 14.0.1 also addresses an issue that prevented email from being sent with some email providers and fixes an issue that prevented images from being displayed in the Messages widget.

In addition, the update fixes a bug that prevented camera previews from displaying on the Phone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and fixes a bug that prevented some iPhones and iPads from connecting to Wi-Fi networks.

Apple has also released updates to watchOS and tvOS that fix some early issues with their respective operating systems. If you have any linked devices, you should download them too.

You can download iOS 14.0.1 by going into your phone's settings and tapping General, Software Update and then Download.

The Cupertino, California-based tech giant released iOS 14 for the iPhone 6S and later a little over a week ago. If you haven't upgraded to iOS 14 yet, check out this article on digital trends for five good reasons … and two reasons to wait a little longer.
