We all thought that after the launch of iOS 14.5, practically a month ago, Apple would not want to continue adding things to its updates, but it has not been like that, although it must also be said that the urgency to continue publishing patches has not arrived both on the side of new functions and improvements but, rather, on the side of errors, bugs and security flaws. That is what happened just a few days ago, when the Cupertino people were forced to release the iOS 14.5.1 patch on the run to close a critical security problem that had been present in the operating system since time immemorial. Now, when we all thought that we would be calm for a few days, Tim Cook’s guys have launched a new update by surprise, 14.6 that brings a little of everything. Security and podcasts … a bit of everything Although the most striking thing about this patch is that Apple has taken the opportunity to correct some important security flaws, the truth is that we will also have juicy news in certain aspects. For example, the arrival of paid functions to podcasts, those that have been free within the Apple universe for almost 20 years and that are now taking the step towards monetization. But there is more, such as new features for the newly released AirTags that have to do with the possibility of adding an email address in case of loss of one of these beacons. Instead of having to necessarily add a phone number as a contact form, we can finally do it with an email, which is less invasive and seems like it exposes our privacy less than those who find the object that we have lost. As Apple has been announcing in recent days, with the fuss of lossless music, with this update the Dolby Atmos sound also comes to the smartphone, with all that that means to improve the reproduction of content that we can listen to so much through from iPhone speakers, as through any generation of Airpods ever to hit the market. And of course, lossless music also comes with iOS 14.6, although at the moment it is not active within Apple Music. But the important thing, the cool thing, is in security, where Apple takes the opportunity to close some threats that had been detected in recent weeks. One of the most important, the possibility of executing code for hackers through audio files that allowed them to sneak into our device with practically no limitations. So now you know, update as soon as possible.
