Apple has released new public stable builds iOS 14.7 and watchOS 7.6 for all users with eligible devices around the world. The new versions have arrived about a month after the rollout of the previous builds. As one would expect, these updates come with a few new features and changes along with bug fixes and performance improvements.
iOS 14.7 is available for all iPhone models that were part of the iOS 14 compatibility list. The biggest change in the update is support for the MagSafe Battery Pack. It is an accessory for the iPhone 12 series that provides some extra juice to the device. It was launched just last week for $99 and is available in a single white color. This update is a must-install for anyone looking to make use of this new Apple accessory.
The next important new feature is that Apple Card Family now lets users merge their credit card limits. It further lets you share a co-owned account with an existing Apple Card user. If you are a HomePod user, the Home app can now be used to manage multiple timers if you are running iOS 14.7. Lastly, the Podcasts app has been updated to let users choose whether they want to see all the shows or only the ones they follow.
As for watchOS 7.6 update, it brings ECG support to 30 new countries. This functionality is accessible via the Apple Watch Series 4, Apple Watch Series 5, and Apple Watch Series 6. You can check the complete list of newly added countries by visiting the official Apple support page.
