Apple fixes iOS 14 bug that resets default browser and mail apps

Solved! Image: Apple By Stan Schroeder2020-09-25 07:15:41 UTC As far as iOS releases go, iOS 14 wasn't particularly buggy, but it wasn't completely issue-free, either.  Now, Apple has launched an update, bringing the version number to iOS 14.0.1, and fixing a bug that reset the default browser and email apps to Apple's Safari and Mail every time the device was restarted. In iOS 14, Apple introduced the option to change your default browser and mail apps to something other than Apple's default apps; you can, for example, set your browser to Firefox and your mail app to Gmail. But it wasn't particularly useful with the phone reverting to default settings on restart.  The new version of iOS remedies a couple of other, minor bugs, including an issue that could prevent your iPhone from connecting to Wi-Fi networks, a bug that prevented camera previews from displaying on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, a bug that could prevent sending email with some providers, and an issue that could prevent images from appearing in the News widget.  The same bug affected Apple's iPadOS, as well, which has now also been brought to version 14.0.1 with the same fixes (sans the iPhone 7 bug).  You can get the new version of iOS by going to your device's Settings -> General -> Software Update.  Let's block ads!
