If the “Unlock with iPhone” feature won't work on your Apple Watch, that could be because you're using a phone with Touch ID and running the new iOS 14.7 update.
A recently discovered bug that allows malformed network names to crash your iPhone’s Wi-Fi, requiring a factory reset to fix, is now more potent as a zero-day vulnerability in iOS 14.6.
It was only a few days ago that the Odyssey Team acknowledged the discovery of a serious bug on iOS 14 that could cause data loss and/or forced iOS updates.
As such, the Odyssey Team recommended that users of newer versions of the Taurine jailbreak revert to Taurine version 1.0.4, as both versions 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 appeared to exacerbate this issue one way or another.
An issue with Apple Weather has been making rounds, prompting silly speculation that the app was designed to avoid showing 69° as a temperature. Nothing could be further from the truth—in reality, this odd bug is a programming error that has already been fixed in iOS 15.
Taurine jailbreak users may want to backtrack their jailbreak from version 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 to version 1.0.4 pending an announcement shared early Wednesday morning by Odyssey Team member @23Aaron_.
In the announcement, which was echoed on in several different places including the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel, the @OsysseyTeam_ Twitter page, and even on /r/jailbreak, we learn that these versions of Taurine (1.0.5 and 1.0.6) exacerbate an issue in stock iOS that can result in data loss and forced iOS updates.
The Weather app for iPhone and iPad is plagued with the stupidest bug you could imagine, preventing it from displaying the temperature of 69 degrees Fahrenheit anywhere in the forecast.
HomePod software version 14.6 is reportedly causing issues for some people like bricking the Siri-powered speaker. Apple's upcoming HomePod firmware version 15.0 is affected, too.
Another notable bug was discovered and publicized just over the weekend by security researcher Carl Schou in which the presence of a malformed Wi-Fi network name, also known as the SSID, could ‘permanently’ disable an iPhone’s ability to view and connect to nearby Wi-Fi networks. It’s not the first time a Wi-Fi name glitch has affected iPhones, which understandably raises some eyebrows.
Citing the security researcher, the bug would be triggered if the iPhone comes within range of a Wi-Fi network or personal hotspot with the offending name or SSID. Consequently, the Settings app’s Wi-Fi toggle switch becomes disabled and grayed out, preventing the user from turning it back on. Not even resetting the iPhone’s network settings fixes this, compelling the iPhone owner to effectively restore the device to factory settings.
An iPhone hotspot vulnerability that Apple hasn't fixed yet breaks your ability to connect to wireless networks, requiring a factory reset to restore Wi-Fi functionality.
Safari's WebKit rendering engine has a flaw that could crash the browser and enable malicious code execution, and Apple hasn't yet patched it even though a fix's been available for weeks.
Several streaming apps on the Apple TV are labeling 4K movies and television shows as “HD,” but it's unclear whether those videos indeed stream in the four times lower 1080p resolution.
Apple just yesterday released iOS & iPadOS 14.6 to the general public to lay the groundwork for Apple Music’s upcoming lossless playback option, support Apple Card Family, and more. But that's not all...
Also worth noting is that iOS & iPadOS 14.6 patched a number of security vulnerabilities, including one that purportedly allowed security researcher @xerub to gain arbitrary code execution by simply parsing a carefully crafted certificate.
