Apple has released iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1 to the public today. The software update is the first major update to iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 released in September, coming with a long list of improvements and fixes.
The iOS 14.1 adds support for 10-bit HDR video playback, editing in the Photos app on the iPhone 8 and later models. In the previous iOS version, dragging widgets could remove apps out of folders, and some widgets, folders, and icons displayed in reduced size on the home screen – that’s fixed now.
