The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro started shipping last week, and we have a roundup of some of the best early reviews so you can decide whether to upgrade—reviews of the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max should be coming in a few weeks. Apple also released iOS 14.1, iPadOS 14.1, HomePod Software 14.1, and tvOS 14.02. HomePod Software 14.1 brings the HomePod into the iOS 14 era and introduces the new Intercom feature. Apple also released watchOS 7.0.3 to fix unexpected restarts on the Apple Watch Series 3. Finally, Rich Mogull examines the blood oxygen sensor in the Apple Watch Series 6 from his perspective as a paramedic.
