IOS 14.6 – Apple has released iOS 14.6 and has started to bring regular iPhone users. The headline feature of the update is support for paid Apple podcast subscriptions. Starting today, you’ll see some of your audio programs, like ad-free episodes, allowances when you’re willing to support them financially.
With today’s update, Apple has also added support for the Apple Card family. That is another component the organization declared at its new Spring Forward occasion.
To put it plainly, it permits you to exploit Apple’s Family Sharing component with your Apple Card. Five other people can use your card, and you also get access to features like family tracking and optional limits.
People you invite to your group may be under 13 years of age – although any co-owner must be over 18 years of age.
If you decide to take airTags, iOS 14.6 adds an option in Lost Mode so that you can add an email instead of a phone number. When tapped with an NFC-enabled device, the tracker will now also show its owner’s partially obscure phone number.
Like other iOS updates, you look forward to common bug fixes and improvements. In the case of iOS 14.6, Apple says that this release will fix startup performance on some iPhones as well as a bug that can sometimes cause Bluetooth devices to disconnect on a call.
In addition to iOS 14.6, Apple also released macOS 11.4 and watchOS 7.5 to the public. The former adds extended GPU support for AMD RDNA2 video cards, including the 6800, 6800XT and 6900XT.
Like iOS 14.6, Apple Podcast also has support for paid subscriptions. In the meantime, the feature of WatchOS 7.5 is that Apple’s ECG application currently works in Malaysia and Peru.
You can prompt your iOS device to update manually by opening the Settings app on your iPhone and tapping “Software Update”, which is found under the “General” section of the menu.
