In the latest iOS 14.2/ iPadOS 14.2 Beta 2 update it fixes some bugs and adds some emoji 13.0 expressions. The function update still retains Beta 1 content.
As noted by MacRumors, iOS 14.2 comes with a new version of this file that mentions only “headphones” instead of “supplied headphones,” suggesting that Apple is about to release a new iPhone that doesn’t come with EarPods.
To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speakerphone, headphones, or other similar accessories.
The new version update also includes a redesigned “Now Playing” widget that lists recently played albums. When users are not playing music, they can try to listen to these albums. In addition, AirPlay also has a redesigned interface, and supports to help users more easily make multiple AirPlay 2 devices at home play music.
