iOS Update Green Light program: iOS and iPadOS 14.3

14

Apple recently released iOS and iPad OS 14.3 for iPhone and iPad. iOS 14.3 brings the ProRAW camera format to the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, and introduces support for Apple Fitness+, Apple’s latest workout service. It also includes support for Ecosia, a new search engine option, and allows apps created with Shortcuts to launch more quickly (see the full list of updates below).

As with any iOS release, we recommend holding off on updating until your app or accessory developer has had time to fully test compatibility with the new version.
