iOS 14 resets email and browser app settings after third-party upgrade: report

According to reports, iOS 14 users have faced a bug resetting email and browser app settings after third-party app upgrades. Apple recently fixed a bug that caused the default settings for Mail and Browser apps to revert to Mail and Safari after every restart. Now a new error has occurred which essentially does a similar reset after updating your manually selected default mail or browser app. This bug is reported to be a common occurrence with the recently released iOS 14.1 update, and Apple should likely fix it in the next software release. The error resets the default mail app to Apple’s mail app after every update to Gmail or Outlook or any other mailing app that you may have manually set as the default.

Twitter user David Clarke Posted A video shows how the error affects his handset. Every time an email or browser app is updated on iOS 14, the default settings are restored. The video shows that updating the Gmail app (its selected default mail app on iOS 14) will reset its settings. He claims that this also applies to the browser app’s default settings. This is quite inconvenient and likely a bug that Apple can easily fix. The edge Reports that the error persists even after installing the recently released iOS 14.1 update.

Apple should likely fix the problem with the iOS 14.2 update, which is currently still in beta. Previously, an iOS 14 bug had mail and Safari reset as default mail and browser apps after restarting. This bug affected both iPad and iPhone users and was fixed in the iOS 14.0.1 update that was released just days after the bug was reported.

For iOS 14.1, which was released yesterday, the update adds support for playing and editing 10-bit HDR videos in the Photos app for iPhone 8 and later models. The update also fixes issues where emails in email were sent from an incorrect alias and incoming calls were prevented from displaying region information.
