4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 14.8.1 & 11 Reasons You Should
Install iOS 14.8.1 If You Own an Apple Card
If you're an Apple Card user, and you skipped iOS 14.8, iOS 14.7.1 and iOS 14.7, you'll want to download iOS 14.8.1.
iOS 14.7 brought an upgrade to Apple Card Family. With iOS 14.8.1, iOS 14.8, iOS 14.7.1 or iOS 14.7 on board your iPhone, you'll now be able to combine credit limits and share one co-owned account with an existing Apple Card user.
iOS 14.6 brought support for Apple's new Apple Card Family platform. This lets Apple Card users share a card with up to five people, including anyone 13 years or older in a Family Sharing group.
It also adds support for families to track expenses, manage spending with optional limits and controls, and build credit together.
If you missed iOS 14.8, iOS 14.7.1, iOS 14.7 and iOS 14.6, you'll get these features with iOS 14.8.1.
If you missed iOS 14.8, iOS 14.7.1, iOS 14.7, iOS 14.6, iOS 14.5.1 and iOS 14.5, you'll get some other changes to Apple Card with iOS 14.8.1.
Apple's iOS 14.5 update added a new feature that allow for multiple people to use the same Apple Card account. In other words, a family can now use a single card.
If you're the primary Apple Card account holder, you can invite family members to use the Apple Card account. Family spending will be visible in Wallet. You can set spending limits for additional members.
If this sounds useful, make your move to the latest version of iOS 14.

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

My experience – IOS 14.4 is a nightmare for an Iphone7! Immediately following the upgrade, email would no longer open (“connecting” forever). Also, the iphone weather app deleted all weather stations and is similarly “connecting” forever. Deleting a text message, already a ridiculous multi-step process, now requires: select edit; CHOOSE WHETHER TO EDIT TEXT MESSAGES OR OTHER APPS??????; select each text to be deleted; then delete. (Why is there no “delete all” for texts?) Additionally, service bars (inside my house) suddenly dropped from three to one and on the utilities app, I can no longer display the complete serial number. Thank you so much for providing information and assistance to consumers.

Kinda sounds like Windows. Is Bill Gates involved with Apple production/design? If so, Apple and privacy are done!
