Apple has officially released iOS 14.6 to the general public. This update comes as beta tests of iOS 14 begin to conclude ahead of the introduction of iOS 15 next month. Here’s everything new in iOS 14.6 that should have you update your iPhone now.
Podcast subscriptions for single channels and shows launched with iOS 14.6
IOS 14.6 lays the groundwork for Apple Podcast subscriptions, which appears to be a server-side feature that will launch soon. With iOS 14.6, it would be possible to subscribe to an individual channel or program. Each subscription is priced by the creators and billed monthly by default.
Creators can also submit annual bills, which subscribers can manage from their Apple ID account settings, which are now accessible from Listen Now Listeners will also have access to free trials and episode samples from the creators.
The Apple Card family is here
Announced at the “Spring Loaded” event in April, the Apple Card family is now available. With this, an Apple credit card can be shared with up to five people, including anyone 13 years of age or older in your Family Sharing group. The Apple Card family, running iOS 14.6, supports families to track spending, manage spending with optional limits and controls, and create credit together.
AirTag with Find My improvements
The recently launched AirTag app reaped some benefits from iOS 14.6. If you lost the object tracker, Lost Mode now offers the option to add an email address instead of a phone number.
AirTag will also display the partially hidden owner’s phone number when communicating with an NFC-enabled device.
Shazam is now an app widget in iOS 14.6
Apple-owned Shazam was integrated with iPhone and iPad last year with iOS 14.2, which introduced a new toggle for selecting songs directly from Control Center. Now, with iOS 14.6, Apple expanded this integration and turned it into an app segment containing song information.
The process of identifying songs with Shazam remains the same. All you have to do is go to Control Center and tap on the Shazam icon (you can add it here through the iOS Settings app). Now, instead of receiving a notification that redirects you to a website, you will see song details through Shazam’s Clip app.
Apple Music Lossless Capacity
Apple Music Lossless will be launched in June, but to take advantage of Dolby Atmos, Spatial Audio, or even lossless audio quality, users will need to upgrade to iOS 14.6. If you subscribe to Apple Music, that’s another reason to update your iPhone now before the feature officially rolls out in June.
