Apple has also brought a list of other bug fixes through the iOS 14.2.1 update that are only available to iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

San Francisco, Nov 20 (IANS) Apple has released iOS 14.2.1, addressing a number of bugs, fixing a key display problem some iPhone 12 mini owners had reported. The iPhone 12 mini doesn't respond when the user tries to swipe up, turn on the camera, or turn on the flashlight. However, state investigators say that the tech giant worked to hide the problem from the public.

In addition to the fix particularly aimed at the iPhone 12 mini users, the iOS 14.2.1 update fixes an issue in which some MMS messages failed to reach their recipients. To find out if you are running the latest iOS software, you need to open the Settings app and then select General Software update. iOS will let you know if your software is current or if it needs to be updated.


Apple's problems don't end there. If you have the iPhone 12 and/or 12 Pro, we've got you covered there, too. The Washington Post first reported the news.

User posts are backed up by photographs.

Now you can use it whenever you listen to a song, even when you listen to a playlist with headphones, to see the song title and artist.


At the moment, the company is trying to find a way out of the situation; and determine the cause of the screen color change.

This means that Apple is affirmative that a future software update will be able to fix the problems. DxOMark noted that the yellow cast continues to appear under each lighting condition. We hope that the company resolves the iPhone 12 screen issues as soon as possible.

"This isn't the only financial penalty levied against Apple for the matter, but numerous payments amount to a drop in the bucket when compared to Apple's sales â€" last month, the company reported $US26.4 billion in revenue from iPhones alone in its fiscal fourth quarter earnings.
