iOS 14 was a spectacular release for iPhone and iPad. However, as any major release it did include its fair share of bugs and glitches. We expect that iOS 14.1 fixes a series of them, including the bug that’s randomly muting Ringer and Alerts, the Health data problem, the Email aliases glitch and many others.
