iOS 14.8 Release Date, Issues, and Changes
Even though the official launch of the much-awaited iOS 15 is just a month away (in September), Apple is still working on the iOS 14.8 update. While the Cupertino-giant is well-known for releasing updates one after the other to boost the overall performance of the software, it’s the timing of the update that seems to have pushed the entire tech industry into frenzy.
If you too are wondering what’s going on with the tech giant, then this article is for you. The iOS 14.8 release date, issues, and changes—we have it all covered. So, let’s dive right into the matter now.
iOS 14.8 Features, Changes, and Issues
To put it straight, iOS 14.8 is more geared towards enhancing the software and less towards adding new features or tweaks. Because iOS 15 is just around the corner, it makes sense to go full throttle for refinements.
But why did Apple have to rush for iOS 14.8 update when the iOS 14.7 was released just last month with some notable features and a ton of improvements? Though only the Cupertino-giant would be able to answer this question perfectly, we guess the company had found some bugs and security issues that it wanted to fix without any delay. As we all know how strongly the tech giant takes on security, it’s quite obvious that the company has rushed for the security patches and the miscellaneous issues that may have cropped up out of nowhere.
Without undermining the impressive speed and seamless experience that iOS delivers, the mobile operating system has had a long history of being embroiled in way too many issues such as the black screen of death, audio issues, overheating, and more. Even though Apple doesn’t take long to come up with reliable fixes for the most common iOS issues, random bugs and unexpected problems have become the part and parcel of the mobile operating system. Worse, there are certain issues such as ill-functioning of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and battery drain that never seem to go away.
iOS 14.8 Release Date
Are you feeling stumped by the big question, “When will Apple release iOS 14.8?” If various reports are to be believed, the Cupertino giant is likely to roll out the iOS14.8 by the end of this month or early next month, keeping in mind that iOS 15 will be launched in the second or third week of September.
When we got to about iOS 14.8 in an Apple developer environment via the Xcode 13 beta 4, we got super curious about the development. Though the weird timing surprised us all, it did not take long for us to figure out what could be going on behind the scene. It’s not the first time that Apple is working on an iOS update solely focused on security patches and bugs. And from what we can tell based on our years of experience in dealing with Apple devices, it won’t be the last either.
