iOS 14.4 Release Candidate now available with new features and fixes

January 21st, 2021 at 1:40 PM
iOS 14.4 release candidate
  • Apple rolled out iOS 14.4 RC and iPadOS 14.4 RC for iPhone and iPad on Thursday.
  • This is the last iOS 14.4 release before it rolls out to the public, adding notifications for when your camera can’t be verified as a genuine Apple camera and more.
  • iOS 14.4 and iPadOS 14.4 should be available to the general public in the coming days.

You won’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on the next major iOS update, as Apple seeded the release candidate of iOS 14.4 to developers on Thursday. iOS 14.4 doesn’t introduce any significant new features, but it does allow the Camera app to identify smaller QR codes, lets you classify the device type in Bluetooth settings to correctly identify headphones for audio notifications, and adds a warning about non-genuine cameras.
