With the rolling out of iOS 14.6, the latest iPhone software update improves the lost mode options in AirTag, podcast subscription, Apple Card, and Voice control.
Apple has begun rolling out the iOS 14.6 software update to compatible devices, including the iPhone 6s, the latest iPod touch, and other iPhone models. Apart from introducing various security updates and bug fixes, the tech giant has added some excellent new features which enhance the usefulness of its various products and services.
Most probably, Apple may announce iOS 15 software updates in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference, which could be one of the last updates for iOS 14. The Home Screen Widgets that arrived with iOS 14 made a huge splash. Many users take the customization options to the extreme and begin replacing app icons with their chosen designs to complete the overall aesthetic.
Shortcuts app was used to accomplish the swapping of icons and came with a time penalty. It opened before the opening of the particular app that was linked to the new icon. For users to enjoy refining the Home Screen look on their iPhone, it is worth keeping in mind that the feature has been changed. Now, you can open the app directly with the custom icons instead of opening the Shortcuts app first.
For AirTag users, the tech giant has added a welcome option with rolling out iOS14.6 that marks an item as lost. Previously, the ‘lost mode’ offered a place where you can share your phone number with anyone that found a stolen or missing AirTag. Plus, there was also a box to type your message.
Now, you can give an email address with the introduction of the latest version of the Find My app instead of writing a message or sharing your phone number. However, because many iPhone owners often have multiple email addresses but only one iPhone, it will be better and more privacy-focused to give out an email address that you can replace easily.
This also applies to devices on which Find My app is enabled. Another AirTag privacy improvement includes hiding the first six digits of your phone number when another phone scans the AirTag, whereas the complete phone was previously visible.
Suppose AirTag users want to update to the latest iPadOS and iOS to enjoy these upgrades. In that case, the complete list of changes is available in the Settings app under the Software Update, whereas you can view the security updates on Apple’s website.
