Apple has released a series of minor updates to its operating systems, bringing bug fixes and performance improvements to iOS 14.4.1, iPadOS 14.4.1, watchOS 7.3.2, and macOS 11.2.3.
Live updates can be downloaded directly to devices. On iOS and iPadOS, this means opening the Settings app, then selecting General, then Software Update, or waiting for the update to install automatically if this setting is enabled.
On watchOS, the update can be installed through the Watch app. While this can be done automatically, a manual check can be done by selecting My Watch, then General, then Software Update.
In macOS, the update can be installed by opening System Preferences and then selecting Software Update.
The updates are of a minor nature, as indicated by the version numbers, and do not make any changes to functionality. Instead, each offers “important security updates” that are recommended by Apple for installation by all users.
Apple will provide details on the security content of each update through its dedicated Apple Security Updates page, which will be updated later on Monday.
Apple last updated iOS and iPadOS to version 14.4 on January 26, adding features like “Find My Items” and an improved HomePod mini Handoff.
