....definitely strange that some are experiencing major issues in the Health app (the main reason why I am holding off updating) whilst others are not??!

I am one of those people and if they don’t fix it soon I’m going to snap.

For anyone with Health and Watch issues, things are finally working normally for me again. I had way too many calls with Apple over the past week and last night they had me back everything up on iCloud, unpair the watch, wipe my phone, restore the phone from backup, then restore the watch from backup.

AutoSleep doesn't show any dropped sensor readings from last night, my resting calories are back to what's expected, and the Health app data matches up with everything in Fitness/on my watch. Didn't lose any awards, achievements, or data in the Fitness app (unfortunately everything is still wonky in Health from the week-ish where things were haywire).

The only weird thing was that active calories didn't get recorded in Fitness or on my Watch once both devices were restored. I logged a mini workout for a few minutes to see what would happen - the Watch showed that calories were getting burned during the workout, the actual record of the workout in Fitness showed that same number of calories, the additional active calories and exercise minutes were reflected in Health, but the Move number wouldn't budge on either. Wouldn't have annoyed me so much if I wasn't 40 calories shy of my Move goal by the time I restored everything! Active calories started recording as usual as soon as the clock struck midnight, and yes I stayed up late to take a few laps around my apartment to test it out (luckily post-debate stress didn't make that too difficult).

It's been less than 24 hours so who knows how long this fix will last. Absolutely miserable process to solve a very frustrating problem, but it was the only solution they had until they finally work out the bug.

Ha! Of course.

Oh my god is this process annoying. My phone got stuck on two factor authentication and Apple support was like no help. Finally got it working. Watch is slowly pairing again (maybe slow because phone is also still downloading apps and stuff?). I’m going to run later and will report back on the map issue.

I think I found a new email issue. I use the standard Apple app. I have 3 emails - iCloud, Gmail, and an exchange one. I leave the mail as All Inboxes. I have found, not all the time but often, if I open an iCloud email from notifications and then go back into email it is only the iCloud inbox shown and not all inboxes. Anyone else having this issue?

Yes, and it’s not new with IOS 14 for me. I finally gave up reporting it.

..its a shame that the native Apple Weather widget isn't animated like it is when you actually open the app (i.e. when its raining, in the app you see the rain falling but in the widget you do not).
