Robert E. Handley says
I upgraded to IOS 14 on my iPhone 11 Pro Max, and iPad Pro 11” so far the only bug is in Apple mail after down loading mail it shows a count at the top of the screen as you read and delete mail the count does not decrease as it used to. Not a major problem but it would be nice if it worked as it should.
Sandy Karlovich says
I also update right away.
My wife and I have an iPhones 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPad Air, and iPad Pro all with 64GB of memory. We are currently running IOS 12.4 on all devices with no problems. Our concerns have always been the problems that come up with new releases especially with connectivity, networking and battery drain. We understand the security issues but reliable connectivity and power usage is a higher concern to us.
