Apple Publishes macOS Sonoma 14.4, visionOS 1.1, tvOS 17.4, watchOS 10.4, and HomePod Software 17.4

Apple has just released a wide range of further software upgrades, ranging from watchOS 10.4, macOS Sonoma 14.4, tvOS 17.4, visionOS 1.1, and HomePod Software 17.4, after the release of iOS 17.4 and iPadOS 17.4 earlier this week with significant ramifications.

The new EU restrictions for digital markets are being addressed by Apple in macOS Sonoma 14.4, just as they were in iOS 17.4 and iPadOS 17.4. The changelog states that customers who live in the European Union can now utilize different payment methods for apps in the App Store that have an external badge when making purchases. The development team, however, needs to endorse this choice. Apart from that, macOS Sonoma 14.4 brings 18 body and person emojis in the opposite direction, along with new emojis via the emoji keyboard (such as mushroom, phoenix, lime, burst chain, and shaking heads). A variety of improvements and bug fixes complete the release.

WatchOS 10.4 will also bring a number of new features, enhancements, and bug fixes to Apple Watches. For instance, messages can now be extended with a double touch if the “Tap to show message” setting is enabled. In order to increase security while using Apple Pay with the “Confirm with Assistive Touch” feature, a code must now be entered. There is no support for double tapping the side button. The update also resolves issues that were preventing contacts from correctly syncing with the Apple Watch and erroneous touches on the display.

Apple also releases an update for HomePods. With the release of HomePod Software 17.4, Siri can now recognize the user’s favorite media provider, so it’s no longer need to specify the name of the third-party app or set it as the default. Although it is new, tvOS 17.4 for Apple TV doesn’t appear to feature any significant advancements. Just minor enhancements and bug fixes.
