iOS 14.3 has been released, and this time it came on a day that does not conform to Apple traditions. Major updates were generally released on Thursday night, but this time, the company had to launch it on a Tuesday morning. That’s because iOS 14.3 is the software version that adds compatibility with the new AirPods Max headphones, which arrive in stores around the world today. In addition to support for these headphones, we also have some new features for iPhone 12 devices and older models.
Apple has launched a new service with the new software version
First of all, iOS 14.3 is the software version that adds the Fitness + service to the list of Apple services. However, it is not yet available in Romania, but Apple has included it on the list of news in our country. Then we have AirPods Max, which can automatically connect to devices and make the switch from one to the other depending on what you are actively using.
In terms of new features, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max receive the ability to take photos in Apple ProRAW format, which ensures superior photo quality and the ability to edit them in professional software. Another new feature is the recording of videos at 25 frames per second, as well as the ability to mirror photos taken with the front camera, for those who want this on older versions. On the iPhone XS, XR, 11 and 12 you could already do that. Now it is possible on the iPhone 6S, SE, 7, 8 and X series.
Other news would be the list of data that the applications in the App Store access, which can be consulted on each page, as well as minor changes in the Weather, Health and Safari applications.
Other improvements include message notifications that were sometimes missing, some issues with Bluetooth, and an issue with the new MagSafe Duo charger, which had limited charging power. Now they have been resolved.
