In addition to the iPhone 12, Apple made another important announcement that did not pass so much notice. The company has released the first major update of iOS 14, which reached version 14.1. The update began to be distributed on Tuesday afternoon.

Apple in iOS and iPadOS 14.2 is adding new Emoji 13 emoji characters, with options that include smiling face with tear, ninja, pinched fingers, anatomical heart, black cat, mammoth, polar bear, dodo, fly, bell pepper, tamale, bubble tea, potted plant, piñata, plunger, wand, feather, hut, and more, with a full list available here. For reference, the iOS 14 GM was launched just a day before iOS 14 reached all iPhone users.

Apart from that, the design elements in Safari stand out as an update that allows the Catalyst application and the Messages application to work with Apple Silicon outside the current processor.

Apple has released the third developer beta of iOS 14.2 which is being been tested since last month, along with this release Apple has released iOS 14.1 GM to developers, which was mistakenly rolled out to the public, before being pulled.

It is likely that the decision aimed to stop the leaks of information about the new iPhones 12-series.

Apple has also released a tvOS 14.1 golden master for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models. The downloads are available exclusively to developers and are not available to the general public.

iOS 14.2 introduces a new Music Recognition control for the Control Center, deepening the integration of the Apple-owned Shazam app in the iOS operating system.

Make sure you have updated to the latest version of Spotify.
