Apple Releases iOS 14.0.1 for iPhone, Includes Software Patches for News Widget, Default Apps & More

Apple just released iOS 14.0.1 for iPhone today, Thursday, Sept. 24. The update features bug fixes for the News widget, default browser and mail apps, and more. In iOS 14, default apps suffer from a bug where iOS reverts back to Safari or Apple Mail when rebooting your iPhone, which defeats the purpose of the feature entirely.

Apple patched a News widget bug that would sometimes prevent the widget from displaying images. It also fixed an issue with camera previews on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus; a bug that could stop your iPhone from connecting to certain Wi-Fi networks; and an issue that could stop your iPhone from sending emails with certain providers.
