Apple on Thursday issued the first round of beta releases for iOS 14.2, iPadOS 14.2, watchOS 7.1 and tvOS 14.2 to developers for evaluation.

The releases come one day after the next-generation iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7 and tvOS 14 operating systems were pushed out to users around the world, offering access to a slew of new features, performance enhancements, bug fixes and more.

It is not clear what changes the new beta variants contain. In past years, Apple has rapidly deployed iterative point updates to squash bugs and other problems discovered following major public releases. There is also a possibility that new features will roll out as part of the update group.

Vinyl record sales surpass CDs for the first time since the 1980s

The days of vinyl records being a nostalgic relic of the past are long gone. This year, vinyl sales have outpaced CD sales in the United States for the first time since the 1980s.

Vinyl records accounted for $232.1 million of music sales in the first half of the year, compared to CDs, which brought in only $129.9 million, according to a report from the Recording Industry Association of America.
Vinyl records, also known as “records pressed on wax,” were commonplace before other formats, such as cassette tapes and CDs, become the preferred mode of listening to music. But that hasn’t stopped vinyl records from making a resurgence. Since 2005, sales for vinyl have grown consecutively. In the first half of 2020, vinyl revenue was up 4%, while CD revenue was down 48%, according to the RIAA.

iOS 14 default app settings automatically reset to Mail and Safari after reboot – 9to5Mac

One of the new features in iOS 14 is the ability to change the default email or browser app to a third-party alternative such as Chrome, Edge, or Outlook. A bug in the first public release of iOS 14, however, causes your default browser or mail app setting to reset to Mail or Safari when your iPhone or iPad reboots.

For example, let’s say you wanted to change your default web browser from Safari to Google Chrome. You simply head into the Settings app, look for Chrome, then choose the “Default Browser App” setting and make the change. After you’ve made that change, all links will automatically open in Chrome instead of Safari.

In the version of iOS 14 released to the public this week, there is a massive caveat to the new default browser and settings. If you reboot your iPhone or iPad, the default app setting will reset to Apple’s first-party Mail and Safari applications.

But one of his tweets, which was shared nearly 25,000 times, included a photograph that was actually from 2016.
