Apple releases iOS 14.0.1 with default app setting fix

If this was a normal year, we'd all have been downloading iOS 14 yesterday, and waiting to pick up our iPhone 12 devices tomorrow. But it's not a normal year, the iPhone 12 is delayed from its normal timeframe, and Apple didn't have to tie iOS 14 to its release, so it actually released the OS last week. Now, the first bug fix updates are rolling out in the form of iOS 14.0.1, iPadOS 14.0.1, watchOS 7.0.1, tvOS 14.0.1, and macOS 10.15.7 Catalina.

The iOS and iPadOS updates do fix a key issue. iOS 14, for the first time, offered the ability to choose a default browser or a default email client. There was an issue though, as users quickly found that that setting was reset upon rebooting their device. This update fixes that.

There are plenty of other fixes as well. There are fixes for widgets, such as a fix for an issue that prevented images from appearing in News. There are also camera fixes if you're still using an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, and there's a fix for connecting to Wi-Fi networks. Finally, Apple listed a fix for an issue with sending emails with some mail providers.

The updates are rolling out now, although there are already minor updates in beta.
