Apple Brings iOS 14.2.1 to Identify Issues With iPhone 12 Series, Fixes iPhone 12 mini Lock Screen Problem

For the iPhone 12 series specifically, Apple has launched iOS 14.2.1. The latest iOS update brings a patch for a bug that made the iPhone 12 mini lock screen unresponsive. Via the iOS 14.2.1 update, Apple has also issued a list of other bug fixes that are only available for iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The update comes only a week after Apple began selling the world’s iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

iOS 14.2.1 is unique to the iPhone 12 series, unlike daily software updates that are available for a variety of iPhone models. On older iPhone models, this means that it is not available for download.

What’s new in iOS 14.2.1?

The goal of the release of iOS 14.2.1 is to fix some of the notable problems of the iPhone 12 series. This include the recently emerged issue that by rendering the lock screen unresponsive, affected the iPhone 12 mini users. Several users complained on the Web about the issue, although initially Apple did not acknowledge it. One potential solution found by some affected users was not to put a screen protector or case in place. All iPhone 12 mini users were not affected by the problem.

In addition to the patch explicitly targeted at iPhone 12 mini users, the update to iOS 14.2.1 addresses a problem where certain MMS messages have not reached their recipients. The update also fixes the issue that caused sound quality problems when listening to audio from an iPhone on Made for iPhone (MFi) hearing aids.

How to download iOS 14.2.1?

On your iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, or iPhone 12 Pro Max, you can download and install the iOS 14.2.1 update by going to Settings > General > Software Update. Make sure your iPhone is properly charged and linked to a secure Wi-Fi network.
