A nice new feature of iOS 14 is the ability to set your own default mail and browser applications. However, users who have tried this method found that after they restarted the device, the default settings were reset to Mail or Safari. Today, Apple has solved this problem and updated the iPhone and iPad for the first time to reach 14.0.1. Apple Watch will also be updated to 7.0.1.

Now, when you set your preferred browser to Google Chrome, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge by default, or mail to Gmail, Outlook, or Spark by default, they should stay in this state even after restarting.

According to experts, other fixes in the release notes include issues that prevent camera previews from displaying on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, prevent iPhones from connecting via Wi-Fi, and prevent images from appearing in news widgets.

If your phone has not notified you of the update, you can find it by going to Settings>General>Software Update. You can find a list of Apple’s security updates on Apple’s support website.
