Apple releases iOS 14.2.1 to fix some issues

Apple released version 14.2.1 of the iOS system with a number of fixes, including: The fix that the company says will address the lock screen problems that have become unresponsive in the new iPhone 12 mini.

The American tech giant had launched its small smartphone (iPhone 12 mini) last Friday, but users reported issues with the sensitivity of the lock screen after a short period of use. Some users have had problems scrolling up from the bottom of the lock screen when trying to unlock their phones, in addition to problems pressing the flashlight or camera buttons.

Apple says: iOS 14.2.1 will also fix problems with not receiving some MMS messages, and address sound quality issues with some hearing aids made for use with iPhones.

In previous news, Apple said on Wednesday that it will reduce the commission rate in the App Store to 15 percent for software developers whose annual net sales on its platform do not exceed $ 1 million.

Apple currently collects a commission of 30 percent of the total price for paid apps, and in-app purchases made through the app store. And for some small app makers, the new policy could cut the amount they pay Apple in half.

Apple says: The App Store Small Business Program will start on January 1, and that eligible developers will receive a reduced app store commission for paid app purchases and in-app purchases. New developers who have not previously published an app on the App Store will be automatically eligible for the new commission rate.

It is believed that Apple is seeking through this step to show goodwill to lawmakers around the world, who are becoming increasingly focused in its commercial practice of the App Store, which is the only way for most people to install software on smartphones and iPads. A report issued by the House of Representatives’ Judicial Subcommittee on Antitrust, which was published last October, says that Apple is making “more than normal profit” from the app store.
