    Why you don’t see iOS 14 anymore (vis 9to5mac)

    If you’re here, you’re probably aware of the fact that Apple has been allowing users to stay on 14.5 and receive software updates. If you’re out of the loop, take a look at this 9To5Mac article. This is called alternate software updates (or it may be shortened to Alternate SU in some places)…

    What is going on? What happened to 14.8.1?

    Why would Apple do this?
    As we don’t have any information from Apple, we can only guess, but the reason is probably security. Take a look at the 15.2 security content page; quite a number of things was fixed. It’s possible Apple wants everyone to update for the patches, but then again, why not just release an update for iOS 14?

    So is alternate updating dead?

    We don’t know. Apple still mentions alternate updates on their managing software updates page, but this page is known to become outdated for periods…
