Install iPadOS 14.1 If You're Having Issues

If you've been dealing with bugs and/or performance issues on iPadOS 14.0.1, iPadOS 14.0 or iPadOS 13, think about giving iPadOS 14.1 a shot. 

iPadOS 14.1 includes several bug fixes that could help improve your iPad's performance. Here's the full list from Apple:

  • Addresses an issue where some widgets, folders, and icons were showing up in reduced size on the Home Screen
  • Fixes an issue where some emails in Mail were sent from an incorrect alias
  • Addresses an issue where some users were occasionally unable to download or add songs to their library while viewing an album or playlist
  • Resolves an issue where streaming video resolution could temporarily be reduced at the start of playback
  • Addresses an issue in the Files app that could cause some MDM-managed cloud service providers to incorrectly display content as unavailable

If you're dealing with one of these issues, you might want to install the software today.

If you skipped iPadOS 14.0.1, you'll get its bug fixes with your upgrade. Here's what iPadOS 14.0.1 fixed:

  • Fixed an issue that could cause default browser and mail settings to reset after restarting your iPad
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent your iPad from connecting to Wi-Fi networks
  • Resolved an issue that could prevent sending email with some mail providers
  • Addressed an issue that could prevent images from appearing in the News widget

New versions of iPadOS often fix unlisted issues. iPadOS 14.1 has the potential to fix performance issues like severe battery drain, busted Wi-Fi connectivity, UI lag, Bluetooth problems, random reboots, lockups, freezes, and various issues with first-party applications.

If you skipped an iPadOS 13 update, you will get additional bug fixes with your version of iPadOS 14.1. Again, the fixes from the update(s) you skipped are baked into your upgrade.
