Looks like Apple wanted to release this update on Eid 🎉 Happy New Years. Apple released a few hours ago the iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 update for iPhone and iPad, as well as major updates for all its other systems, whether for watchOS 7.6 or Apple tvOS 14.6. The update, although it carries a major number, i.e. 14.7, not 14.6.1, but it did not come with a large number of advantages, as happened with iOS 14.5This update focuses heavily on MagSafe external battery support along with other minor fixes, which makes us wonder why Apple's major updates have become such a sub and little new progress.

New in iOS 14.7 according to Apple ...

  • MagSafe external battery support
  • Home app adds ability to manage timers on HomePod
  • Air quality information is now available in weather and maps apps in Canada, France, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea and Spain
