IOS 14.4 allows the camera to recognize smaller QR codes, and there is a device type identification feature for third-party Bluetooth-connected audio devices so headphone volume measurements can be taken correctly. The Bluetooth section of Settings has been updated with an option to identify the type of device connected to your iPhone, so it knows when headphones are connected for the goal of sending audio notifications.

Apple is releasing iOS 14.4 and watchOS 7.3 today, bringing improvements for iPhone and Apple Watch.

There's also a CarPlay fix that concerns the News app, as Apple says previously the app forgot to resume audio stories when the playback was interrupted by Siri or the navigation app.

While most people wait a few weeks before updating in this occasion it may be wise to update sooner rather than later, via going to Settings General Software Update and then tap "Download and Install" at the bottom of that page. Needless to say, you are recommended to charge your iPhone before installing the update or keep it plugged in until the process comes to an end.
