    Anyone else upgraded to it?

    Quite impressed it supports my archaic 6s phone. Other than FB asking for permission to scan my LAN (which I refused), not a lot of changes that I’ve noticed so far. The Alarm clock seems to have been made super complicated, now part of sleep in Health, which I did fiddle with then switched off and went back to the old style alarm.

    I’ve updated but not actually messed about with it yet.

    Quite a low key update, maybe loads of new things I’ve not discovered, but looks / feels very much live 13 (to me).

    Although I did notice it has a built in CV-19 track and trace app which you can turn on.

    Just like 13.7

    Not upgraded yet but will be soon.

    It caught a lot of developers by surprise, so not many apps have taken advantage of the changes yet.

    I quite like the widgets. It’s odd that on a phone you can place widgets anywhere, but on an iPad they must be in the ‘today’ area (I think that’s what it’s called – the bit to the left of the home screen). Can anyone think of a reason Apple have done it like this?

    Didn’t even know it was coming (so out of the loop 🤣) Downloading to my 6S now. Third Party Default Apps is something I’ve been wanting for ages so that’s cool, Compact Phone Calls sounds like an obvious improvement too!

    The Apple Maps app has cycling directions for bike commuters and cyclists, with the directions taking into account elevation, how busy a street is, and whether there are stairs along the route. For those who own electric vehicles, there’s an option to route with EV charging stops customized for current vehicle and charger types.

    Just upgraded my 11. Like the widgets (especially the stacked ones) and the app library. I had so many folders most of the time I searched for an app anyway. Now I’ve two screens of my most used ones and no folders.

    Not too many apps you can stack at the mo. And a bit annoying that the swipe right screen puts all third party widgets to the bottom. Otherwise so far so good. Seems very responsive as well.

    That’s good. I hate the way FB advertising is influenced by the recent behaviour of other people using the same wirelesses network as me. If Apple have made it harder for them to keep doing this, without permission, that’s a win for me.

    I just checked the privacy setting. LAN Is off by default for all apps. Just had to turn it on for SONOS app.

    Try turning it on and see what happens, assuming you’re in the Uk…

    @kelvin Facebook is deeply unhappy about this. Given the behaviour of both the company and Zuckerberg I have a violin that can only be seen on electron scanning.

    Nothing yet, it only kicks in when your local health service has an app that makes use of it and Apple integrate it.

    There’s a similar program in development for Android.

    Local in this case I think means State, this may even be broken down in our case to Scotland, Wales and England.

    It was an ironic post, in that here in the UK when you switch it on expecting it to connect to our world class track and trace system, it produces an error which states it does not function in your region…

    Anyone else having issues watching embedded YouTube videos in posts on this site (possibly others too but not come across anywhere else with something I want to watch!) since upgrading to IOS14?

    Press play and it just disappears for me.

    Never mind. Just gone on the YouTube app to watch that ‘one breath’ video. Come back on here and videos now play. No idea what that’s about!

    Ah! Right. I didn’t get an error.

    puts all third party widgets to the bottom.

    It puts all non-iOS 14 widgets at the bottom. Citymapper already have theirs out.

    Back tap is handy although they could open up what it can do a bit more.

    Better camera controls.

    App Library is good. Down to a single page now and search for the rest.

    Yeah, it will – YouTube want you to pay for the privilege… 🤪

    For some reason I can’t seem to get the widget thing up and running. Not that I’m especially bovvered, but it would be nice to have some functioning widgets on my Home Screen.

    Press and hold on the screen, click the plus sign and choose the widgets of your liking.

    Back Tap is a great idea, but my archaic 6S doesn’t support it.

    I’m hoping for a good sticky note widget. There are a couple, but none that are much use so far. I love sticky notes.

    Nice to see they’ve sorted the changing to capitals when you go back to insert a letter you’ve missed when typing some text, which appeared with the last 13 update

    That was a pain in the derRière

    What does back tap do, how do I do it?

    Premier Icon jam-bo

    Settings>accessibility>touch>enable back tap

    Set what you want two taps or three taps to do.

    Pre 14 the AppStore just wanted my finger print to authorise downloading an App, whereas with 14 it wants my iTunes password. Any idea how to switch back to finger print?
