On October 30th, Beijing time, this morning, some fans using the iOS 14.2 Beta 4 system found that their phones frequently pop up reminders of system updates. However, in fact, Apple did not push system updates, apparently a new bug appeared in iOS 14.2 Beta 4.
This pop-up window of iOS 14.2 Beta 4 actually appeared a few days ago, but it appears more frequently today, and such pop-up window appears every time the phone is unlocked. Some users said that a similar problem occurred in a previous iOS system test version, and the only way to solve it seems to be for Apple to push an emergency update. At present, Apple has not responded to such a bug. This problem may not be resolved until the new version of iOS14.2 is pushed and upgraded.
So how should friends who encounter this pop-up bug solve it? At present, there is a temporary solution, which is to open the settings-general-time and date, turn off the “automatic setting”, and adjust the time forward a few days to block the system update pop-up prompt. As for the adjustment to a few days, you can test it. Mingmei Unlimited tries to adjust to the 28th without popping up! If useful, remember the bottom three links!
However, the method of changing the time will also cause abnormal functions of the mobile phone and the software. If you want to really solve the bug, you can only wait for the new iOS 14. beta version to be updated or to save the data and flash the machine downgrade.
And this pop-up window seems to be a problem on the Apple server side, because when I used the iOS14.2 Beta4 test version before, everything was still normal, but this problem suddenly appeared when I was in bed this morning.
I have to say that this pop-up is really annoying!
In fact, the same problem appeared in the iOS12Beta version launched in 2018. The problem was caused by an obvious coding error that specified the wrong expiration date for the beta at the time. Read the effective date as the effective date, and the operating system will automatically prompt the user to download the newer version.
There is also that you can delete the iOS14.2 system installation and configuration description file. This is in the iPhone settings and then open the general pull to the end and you can see it. After deleting, restart the iPhone. Of course, the last one is not a solution. We can only wait for the new version of iOS14.2 to be updated.
I believe that Apple will quickly release a software update to fix this bug. Maybe a new version will be released early tomorrow morning.
You should be cautious about trying out the iOS beta.
Let’s talk about whether your iPhone has encountered this problem. Do you have any solutions?
It is also worth mentioning today that at present, iOS 14.1 has been distributed to all users, and Apple quietly closed the verification of iOS 14.0.1 system.
This means that users who have already upgraded to iOS 14.1 or are out of iOS 14.2 Beta will no longer be allowed to downgrade to iOS 14.0.1.
Prior to this, Apple also closed the system verification of iOS 14.0.
The official version of iOS 14 was released on September 16, after a 3-month Beta test phase. This major version update brings desktop widgets, APP resource library and many new features. On September 24, Apple launched iOS 14.0.1 to fix some bugs.
Last Tuesday, iOS 14.1 was pushed. In addition to continuing to fix bugs, it also added support for iPhone 12 models.
Generally, downgrading is more important for jailbroken users. Checkra1n has achieved compatibility with iOS 14, but only for Apple devices before A11.
In addition, downgrading can also allow users to recover from some major errors, but unfortunately, if you are dissatisfied with iOS 14.1, you can only wait for subsequent upgrades instead of downgrading. Currently, the only possible downgrade is to roll back from iOS 14.2 Beta to iOS 14.1.
In addition, it is reported that in the version update of iOS14.2Beta4, Apple has added two new wallpapers, realistic and artistic. At the same time, Apple has also revised the playback controls on the lock screen and redesigned the AirPlay2 control in the control center.
Also, Apple has added several new Emoji emoticons in iOS 14.2.
In addition, recently, according to data from the mobile analytics company Mixpanel, as of October 27, five weeks after the official version of iOS 14 was released, iOS 14’s share reached 46.07%, almost the same as iOS 13’s 46.57%. It was almost a blink of an eye.
Apple has not announced the official iOS 14 install rate. Mixpanel measures iOS adoption based on the number of visits to websites and apps that use its mobile analytics SDK. Therefore, although the data is not official, it is usually the same as Apple’s own data. According to their figures, “iOS 14” is currently installed on more than 46.07% of devices, which is roughly equal to 46.57% of iOS 13 devices in the same period.
During the last week, iOS 14 data was updated every hour. As new devices were activated and included in Mixpanel’s data, it occasionally exceeded iOS 13.
According to this trend, iOS 14 will surpass iOS 13, becoming the most installed version of iOS, and it should rise steadily. Currently, 7.36% of devices continue to run iOS versions older than iOS 13. These devices may be older products that cannot be upgraded to newer software.
Although the adoption of iOS 14 is similar to that of iOS 13, it still lags behind, mainly due to the late launch of the iPhone this year. iOS 13 got a 50% install rate on October 16, 2019, and iOS 14 is expected to take longer to reach the exact goal.
Finally, what Mingmei Wuxuan wants to say is: Currently, Apple has officially released the official version of iOS 14.1, and iOS 14.1 has introduced some bug fixes. It solves a major problem that caused some emails to be sent from the wrong alias. Mail App users will be happy to see this fix. It also fixes an issue that may cause widgets and icons to be displayed in the wrong size, and it fixes a bug in the calculator app that may prevent zeros from appearing.
Apple is expected to push the iOS14.2 version in the next few days, so stay tuned.
