        So… the backup from iOS 13.7 was MUCH slower than normal… even though I ALWAYS back up locally – never, ever to the cloud.

        Installation of iOS 14 just worked with nary a hiccup… except a really, REALLY annoying prompt that I cannot finish the setup without setting up Apple Pay. (NO – I won’t, Apple!)

        Hmm.. the ‘Settings’ icon now shows an issue … but pressing on it just brings up the ‘New Voicemail’ chooser dialogue. Whut?

        OK, I just ignored it and  got rid of it by choosing ‘Setup later in wallet’. It’s still moaning on about ‘Apple Pay’. Snore…

        OK… looked again and the screen now shows no updates over ‘Settings’… no more prompts to set up Apple Pay. Yay!

        And that’s about it – all sorted… so far 🙂

        I didn’t have your problem but I have had several and spent all day trying to get iOS 14 working right on iPhone XR.

        Does anyone here with Fx browser for iOS know why Mozilla says that I can make it the default (finally) browser in iOS 14 for iPhone but I need to upgrade Fx browser from current 28.2 (updated yesterday) to Fx 29 yet there is NO Fx 29 in the Apple app store?

        I can make Edge or Chrome browsers the default browser in iOS 14 and do it now. So, what is with Mozilla having a help article about making Fx the default browser right now in iOS 14 for iPhone but then I can’t find Fx 29 in Apple app store?

        Oh, and in iOS 14, supposedly I can ditch the awful Apple mail and make Thunderbird default. But I can’t see how to do that either.

        You need a new version approved by Apple for changing Fx to default as it adds a new setting in the browser for iOS 14.

        Getting used to Siri behaviour in iOS 14… which was really confusing at first.

        Previously, a long press on the Home button brought up a full-screen Siri input… now it just invokes a smaller ‘shades of Bill’n’Ted trippy’ multi-coloured floating orb… which is now the Siri ‘waiting for input’ notifier*:

        iOS14_01

        And also shows you that the microphone has been activated.

        I like that a press on the orb and ‘Siri… Turn Bluetooth on’ (or ‘Off) now actually shows the radio switch being toggled in Settings > Bluetooth.

        I note also that previous iOS major version updates have often resulted in poor battery life for a few days at least whilst background ‘stuff’ goes on. I haven’t noticed that with this update.

        Hope this helps…

        *Why does this remind me of ‘Johnny 5’s’ demand for ‘Input! More Input!‘?

        (Apologies for huge size of screenshot. Is there a ‘recommended size’ I can use as a guide? I would like to aim for consistency.)

        Bad news for those who want to use third-party browsers or mail apps as default:

        Why is it bad news ? Who reboots his iPhone and why ?
        I only reboot after an iOS updates…Just like I never shut down my PC and only reboot after OS updates.

        There is no setting for default mail app, yet (I run iOS 14.2 beta 1).

        I seldom reboot as well, but generally when Apple Support tells me I have to do resolve an issue. 🙂
