Last week, Apple released iOS 14.2.1 targeted explicitly to new iPhone units that have been experiencing certain bugs that have popped up since iOS 14.2 was disseminated on November 5th. That update added 100 new emoji and also moved music discovery app Shazam to the Control Center. That could make it quicker and easier to find out the name of that tune you like that is playing in the background of a certain television show. And if you’re wondering why Apple is giving this special treatment to an app, well it turns out that Shazam was purchased by Apple almost three years ago for $400 million.
Unlike the update to iOS 14.2, which was accompanied by updates to iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS and others, Apple released the update to iOS 14.2.1 only. It is available for the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. To find the update go to Settings > General > Software Update. It exterminates a bug that prevented some MMS messages from being received, fixes sound quality issues on some Made for iPhone (MFi) hearing devices when listening to audio on the iPhone, and kills another bug, this one found on the iPhone 12 mini, that makes the Lock Screen unresponsive.
