Apple Releases iOS 14.7.1 Update For Apple Watch Unlocking Bug

Apple has pushed out a new iOS 14.7.1 update to iPhone and iPad owners with a fix for Apple Watch unlocking bud a few days after the release of iOS 14.7.

iOS 14,7,1comes in at approximately 900MB and doesn't include new features but does address a bug that made its way into 14.7. The glitch broke Apple's Unlock with iPhone integration, preventing Touch ID-equipped phones from unlocking Apple Watch devices. So if you use an older iPhone with your Apple wearable, you'll want to download the update as soon as possible.

Apple says iOS 14.7.1 also addresses a security vulnerability that someone may have exploited. In a support document spotted by 9to5Mac, the company notes the oversight had allowed an application to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. Apple's latest macOS software, which you can also download today, addresses that same issue with the release of Big Sur 11.5.1. As usual, the company says the updates are "recommended for all users."

Users can manually download iOS 14.7.1 software by opening the Settings app on their iPhone or iPad tapping "General" and then "Software Update if they don’t see a prompt to download. On macOS, meanwhile, open the System Preferences menu and then click on "Software Update."
