Apple today released iOS 14.8, the eighth important update of iOS 14. iOS 14.8 is two months away from the last iOS 14.7. In iOS 14.7, Apple added MagSafe external battery support. This time, iOS 14.8 is mainly a security update. Apple recommends that all users upgrade as soon as possible.
iOS 14.8 may be the last update of the iOS 14 operating system, as we expect the iOS 15 update to be released in a few weeks. But Apple said it plans to allow people to continue using iOS 14 if they don’t want to upgrade to iOS 15.
For this reason, iOS 14 may continue to receive minor security updates over time, but new features may be restricted to iOS 15 users.
