Apple has released iOS 14.2, iPadOS 14.2, tvOS 14.2, watchOS 7.1, and HomePod 14.2, delivering many fixes and a few new features. If you have an Apple device of any kind, you may want to check for updates.

iOS 14.2 (and the nearly identical iPadOS 14.2) appear to have the most improvements, with 100 new emoji, 8 new wallpapers, support for the as-yet-not-released the iPhone 12 Leather Sleeve with MagSafe, redesigned AirPlay controls, a new Shazam toggle in Control Center so you can more easily identify a nearby playing song, and more.

watchOS 7.1 brings the Apple Watch ECG feature to South Korea and Russia. And HomePod 14.2 includes support for new ‌Siri‌, Intercom, and Home Theater features, plus the ability to connect one or two HomePod‌s to ‌Apple TV‌ 4K for stereo, surround sound, and Dolby Atmos audio.
