iOS 14.2 On iPhone 7! (Review)

by birtanpublished on November 20, 2020

Welcome back everyone ios 14.2 has just officially came out we had like a gold master version or rc version for a while but now we officially got the update which is really awesome so let's go and see how it holds up on the iphone 7. now this update was actually a good sized one it actually did bring a lot of features i think it was around i want to say 700 megabytes i'm not really too sure so it was 761 megabytes on my iphone 7 and it was pretty much like this on all my other devices too so if you have an iphone 7 or really any other older

Iphone i'd recommend keeping it on keeping it just at least like a gag saved now when i updated i didn't run to any other problems or anything like that it was straightforward my phone didn't even get that hot which was pretty surprising and i just ran a benchmark and it still wasn't even that but you know hot to be honest which is really surprising now this update did bring a hundred new emojis which is really cool there's like a ninja one there's like some other ones too some hand motions so i'll let you guys kind of figure it out

I don't really want to put all of them here in this video i don't know every single which one that came but i think 100 or over a hundred new emojis were added so that's a really cool feature but that's not even my favorite feature within this update and the iphone 7 since it supports it has my new cool thing which i really love about ios 14.2 which is the new wallpapers so if we go into settings if we click on wallpaper right here and if we click on choose new wallpaper we'll click

Stills you'll see that we have some new wallpapers these eight ones i think there's more maybe but at least eight and my favorite one is probably one of these ones so i click on this one and you can see i have dark mode enabled so it's going to automatically click on here and click set both whatever but if i go ahead and go off dark mode and if i go into light mode that one is actually my favorite okay i don't know where it is but that's actually my favorite wallpaper

And that's something that i really do like about these so if i go back on light mode you'll see that if i click here this is my favorite wallpaper i don't really like the dark mode one that much but this one is really cool and i'm so glad i'm probably gonna make a different video in a separate video talking about this but these new wallpapers are super sick 14.2 also brought the homepod intercom feature so if you have air home pods i always say airpods if you have homepods and you have them around your house you

Can actually speak to it and send messages and stuff and say to a specific airpod homepods or all air home pods so that's really cool i can't even say homepods properly we also have a new control center toggle which can help us go and you know for music recognition it's kind of like the shazam thing i don't really know i mean like i'm kind of a snapchat i already use it for you know for music recognition if people want to use it i say go for it but right here the music recognition toggle it can go ahead and work just

Like shazam and go and figure out songs and stuff now ios 14.2 also brought airpods optimized charging which was talked about the first time in ios 14 the keynote so that's a really cool thing too we finally have and i'll have a separate video eventually talking about that too i'll go and show you guys the benchmark that i had so if i go ahead and click here click cpu not that one cpu you can see november 5th time is flying by you can see 477 single

Core score 12 26 as my multi-core score which are pretty decent scores i think i don't know what it was before so 750 has a single core score of 13 32. so maybe it wasn't quite you know the exact good score probably wasn't increased but this iphone 7 has been really weird as you can see sometimes it's up actually last couple times so this one was really bad i don't know why that one was so bad so i don't really see a big deal in terms of the decrease these benchmarks are kind of weird anyway i'm not gonna

Lie but to answer the question i mean should you install ios 14.2 on your iphone 7 i can definitely tell you if you have an iphone 7 i'll say go for it if you're on ios 14. if you're on ios 14 or 14.0.14.1 i would recommend going to ios 14.2 it has a lot of cool features out of these wallpapers emojis homepod intercom feature airpods features like there's a lot of different capability that you have in this update which really makes it that much better of a device in my opinion

But if you're on ios 13 as i said before you may just be better off just maintaining ios 13 for a little bit longer i've had a lot of issues with battery life on my iphone 7s and i don't know if it's ios 14 i want to say it's almost 99 ios 14 problem but if you can wait a little bit longer i would say stick with ios 13 you consider yourself lucky but if you're on ios 14 going up to 14.2 was probably the best way to go like i said i haven't ran into any issues it didn't you know work out on me

It didn't like you know overheat or anything so stability wise i think it's going to be just as stable if not more stable than 14.1 i'm hoping it to be more stable but if not at least you're still getting more features but as far as i can tell i mean it seems about the same stability we're not going to be able to tell for at least like a couple more days now but if you're on ios 14 on your iphone 7 i would recommend updating but if you're on ios 13 i would recommend staying there
