The release of iOS 14.7 was right on cue, days after the release candidate version had been seeded to developers. There are bug fixes as well as feature improvements including support for the new MagSafe Battery Pack, timers on HomePod, air quality information for more countries and updates for the Apple Music app as well as Podcasts.
