What’s new in iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7

It’s a pretty minor update, but there are a handful of new features. This version adds official Apple MagSafe battery support, lets you set limits with a shared Apple Card Family account, lets you set HomePod timers in the Home app, and more.

Here are the full release notes:

  • MagSafe battery holder for iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • Apple Card Family adds the ability to combine credit limits and share a condominium account with an existing Apple Card user
  • Home app adds ability to manage timers on HomePod
  • Air quality information is now available in weather and maps for Canada, France, Italy, Netherlands, South Korea and Spain
  • The podcast library lets you choose to see all shows or only watched shows
  • Share Missing Playlist menu option in Apple Music
  • Dolby Atmos and Apple Music lossless audio playback may stop unexpectedly
  • Battery service message that may have disappeared after restarting some iPhone 11 models is restored
  • Braille displays may show invalid information when composing messages

The release notes for iPadOS 14.7 are the same except for MagSafe battery support (as iPads don’t have MagSafe) and air quality in weather and maps (because iPadOS does not have a weather app for some reason).

iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 feature many security enhancements, which Apple has detailed here.

Updating your iPhone to iOS 14.7 (or iPad to iPadOS 14.7) is easy. It suffices:

  • Open Settings
  • Press on General
  • Then on Software Updates to download the latest version.

It can take up to a few hours to become available all over the world, so don’t worry if it’s not here on July 19th right away.

IOS update

If you still don’t see the update, try turning off your phone by holding down the side button and the volume up button for a few seconds, then sliding the “Slide to power off” control.

After waiting a minute, press and hold the Side button for a few seconds to turn your iPhone or iPad back on, and check for the update again.
