    Apple Releases iOS 14.3 And iPadOS 14.3 Updates

    iOS14.3
     

    Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product's security. Apple has released the iOS 14.3 software version for all iPhone users globally including India. The latest iOS version brings support for Apple Fitness+ and AirPods Max, launched recently.

    The update also adds the ability to capture photos in Apple ProRAW on iPhone 12 Pro and also introduces privacy information on the App Store that includes some new features and bug fixes for the iPhone. Additionally, Apple also released watchOS 7.2 for Watch users.

    Apple Watch

    Apple Watch can monitor and classify cardio fitness, a strong predictor of overall health. With iOS 14.3 and watchOS 7.2, Apple Watch users can view their cardio fitness level in the Health app on iPhone, and receive a notification on Apple Watch if it falls within the low range.

    Now, with watchOS 7, Apple Watch uses multiple sensors, including the optical heart sensor, GPS, and the accelerometer, to estimate lower levels, too. watchOS 7 also allows Apple Watch to take cardio fitness measurements as users walk throughout the day, whether or not they are tracking a workout.

    AirPods Max

    The update adds support for Apple's newest product, the AirPods Max over-ear headphones. Apple says the update enables high fidelity audio for rich sound, Adaptive EQ for adjusting sound in real time to the personal fit of the ear cushions, Active Noise Cancellation for blocking environmental noise, Transparency mode to hear the environment around you, and Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking for a theater-like experience.

    ProRaw Support

    iOS 14.3 brings the new ProRAW format to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max. ProRAW is designed for those who prefer to shoot in RAW but also want to take advantage of the Apple image pipeline data like noise reduction and multiframe exposure adjustments. ProRaw can be enabled in the Camera section of the Settings app for those who have installed the iOS 14.3 beta on a new ‌iPhone 12 Pro‌ or Pro Max.

    ProRaw photos are approximately 25MB in size, so the feature may need to be used sparingly if ‌iPhone‌ storage space is an issue. ProRAW photos can be edited in the Photos app.

    Home Screen Shortcuts

    OS 14.3 makes it easier and quicker to launch apps with custom icons from the Home Screen. When opening an app that has a custom icon created using Shortcuts, it is no longer routed through the Shortcuts app and is instead able to open much more quickly.

    TV App

    Apple is adding a new Apple TV+ tab that's designed to make it easier to discover ‌Apple TV+‌ original content and to make it less confusing for customers who have trouble discerning what's available through an ‌Apple TV+‌ subscription and what's not.

    There's also an enhanced search feature for browsing by category like genre, and when typing in a search, Apple will provide recent searches and suggestions. Apple also now shows top search results with relevant matches across movies, tv shows, cast, channels, and sports.

    Bug Fixes

    iOS 14.3 fixes a bug that could case some MMS messages to not be received, along with an issue that could prevent contact groups from failing to display members when writing a message. There's also a fix for a bug that could cause the MagSafe Duo Charger to fail to wirelessly charge an ‌iPhone‌ at less than the maximum power.
