Apple has released new versions of operating systems for various categories of its products. So, users got access to iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2.
One of the most notable innovations in iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 are dozens of new emoji icons. Among them are images of ninja, transgender flag, coins, dodo, piñata, tamales and other objects. Separately, the new “pinched finger” emoji is noted. Other improvements in iOS 14.2 include eight new wallpapers, an updated AirPlay menu, and a new Shazam switcher in Control Center. In addition, the developers have fixed a large number of discovered bugs.
The update also brought several features to Apple HomePod products, including Intercom and the ability to connect smart speakers to Apple TV 4K for multi-channel audio.
Apple also released a new version of watchOS 7.1, which added support for the Intercom function, audible warnings in headphones, and support for the ECG app in Korea and Russia.
