Apple appears to have released a revised version of iOS 14.2 that's available to those who have an iPhone 12 device and who have not previously installed the iOS 14.2 update.

It's not clear why Apple has released a new version of iOS 14.2, but it may include minor bug fixes, perhaps for installation issues. The updated software has a build number of 18B111, while the original release has a build number of 18B92.

The update will show up under General > Software Updates for new iPhone 12 owners who still have iOS 14.1 installed. New iPhone 12 models come with iOS 14.1.

Apple originally released iOS 14.2 on November 5, with the update adding new emoji characters, a Control Center Music Recognition toggle, new wallpapers, Intercom support, and more.

Nothing showing up on my 12 Pro... assuming it is just for the 12?

Edit: Failed to read that it is only for those who have not already installed 14.2

It will only show up if 14.2 is not installed yet. Otherwise it has to be installed manually trough iTunes on Windows or Finder on MacOS.

I’m currently on 14.2 on my iPhone 12, and the update is available.

Um, ok?? What's different, "special" about this? Something I - those who have already upgraded missing?
I got my 12 Pro Max on Friday, upgraded to 14.2, did a clean wipe out of the phone and started over.

Probably minor bug fixes... not sure why it wasn't pushed to all users though.
