iOS 14.1 software update

Apple is about to release iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1 for compatible iPhone and iPad models. iOS 14.1 build number is build number is 18A8395. Same build number is available for iPadOS 14.1!

Update 3 (October 20): iOS 14.1 has been released to the general public with 13 bug fixes and improvements, including the fix for the email aliases bug and more!

Update 2: iOS 14.1 has been pulled and is now available as GM version for Developers! IPSW download links are available below in case you want to manually install it on your device!

Strangely, the new software update isn’t available over-the-air yet, but showing up in the Developer portal on Apple’s website. The new version is labeled with the October 13 date, which confirms that the public release is imminent!

iOS 14.1 is the 2nd software update since the public release of iOS 14, back on September 16. It follows iOS 14.0.1, which was a minor release that came with 5 bug fixes, almost two weeks ago.

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.
