Apple has released the latest update to its operating system that comes packed with a fix that has been causing some podcasters to have fewer than normal downloads. The iOS 14.7 update will no longer prevent automatic downloads for new episodes from completely downloading in the background. Apple said earlier this month that the glitch, while not impacting listening, could reduce downloads reported by third-party hosting providers.
The latest version of iOS also has a few other updates for Apple Podcasts. The podcast library will now allow users to choose whether they want to view only the shows they follow, or all shows.
In its release notes for iOS 14.7, Apple said the update will also give Apple Card Family users the option to combine credit limits and share one co-owned account with an existing Apple Card user, adds the ability to manage timers on HomePod, restore the share playlist menu option to Apple Music, and fix issues with Dolby Atmos and Apple Music lossless audio playback that caused the feature to unexpectedly stop, among other updates.
This is possibly the finale update to iOS 14. Apple unveiled iOS 15 at its recent developers’ conference, announcing it planned to roll out the new software in the fall.
