Don't Install If Your Situation is Fluid or You're Traveling

If you're hunkered down at home trying to weather the Coronavirus, if you're a first responder that uses your phone, or if you are you unable to spend time on the phone with Apple if something goes wrong after the update, you should wait to install this update until a later date.

There's a good chance iOS 14.4 works fine on your iPhone, but it takes a while to install the update and there is always a chance something could go wrong.

You might not want to deal with 1) waiting an hour for an update to install, 2) finding help with Apple Stores closed, and/or 3) dealing with apps or services that aren't working.

If any of these things concern you, you might want to hold off until we know more about iOS 14.4 and its performance.

If you are preparing to go on a trip or if you're in the middle of a trip, you might want to hold off on the installation. 

iOS 14.4 has the potential to cause problems and that's probably the last thing you want to be dealing with on a trip with your family or on an important business trip. 

If you're going to be away from home and away from your backups, we highly recommend holding off on an upgrade.

    XR 14.2 Just noticed Dish Anywhere & My Dish won’t allow sign in. Can’t sign in Dish as my tv provider either.(sign in error. authorization svc.unavail. try later) Tried via wyfy & data. Reboot phone; delete & reinstall apps after update 1 app. Also I can access Dish Anywhere on laptop (win 10) but cannot connect to Dish anywhere or myDish with apps on iphone OR browsers: chrome, opera, and safari on iphone. also I tried dvd.netflix.com on 3 browsers on iphone and get same message ‘page not found” but can do fine on laptop on any browser. Called DISH, T Mobil, Apple and they all point fingers at the other. These always worked in previous versions but I cannot tell you exactly what one was last version working. Why does a web page work on laptop but not on iphone but all other websites work fine on the iphone. going nuts…please help
