iOS 14: Watch out for the new bug in Apple’s new software

    Apple has released iOS 14, and the free software upgrade was made publicly accessible by Apple on Wednesday with some major updates like home screen widgets and Siri, along with some minor adjustments. One of the new features is the potential to switch default browser and email from Apple’s default Safari and mail app. However switching from the default browser is simple enough, the settings revert around when an iPhone is rebooted.

    Bug in iOS 14

    The first major bug has been found in the new iOS 14. What users have reported is that whenever they change the default browser to Google’s Chrome, for illustration, it operates as expected, and hitting any link in an application or browser will open Chrome on the iPhone. But if they reboot the phone, iOS 14 switches that default back to Apple’s Safari. 

    “We are aware of an issue that can impact default email and browser settings in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. A fix will be available to users in a software update,” Apple said in a statement.

    The bug is an indication that Apple’s been publicly testing its new iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 software since declaring it in the summer. There have been similar bugs in other applications in the web world where setting values changed after a new update or deployment.

    Apple’s iOS 14 launch hasn’t taken off smoothly so far. Nintendo and different app developers instructed people not to download the update as of now, instructing that it could direct to glitches/complications. Developers only received a 24 hours notice on the release of iOS 14, and several people were left confused that would their apps function properly the next day. This was odd for Apple, which provided developers more than a week of notice before iOS 13’s release last year.
