Running Shortcuts on the iPhone and iPad just got a lot faster.
As reported by 9to5Mac, when Apple released iOS 14.6 and iPadOS 14.6 to the public, it made enhancements to AirTag as well as launched Apple Card Family and Apple Podcasts Subscriptions. While Apple did not announce anything about it, it also made Shortcuts run much faster.
As the report notes, it appears to only be noticeable if you have a shortcut with dozens if not hundreds of tasks that run. However, the tests show that, for those who use such shortcuts, they could see performance improvements as much as 200%.
This is great news for those who are deep into Shortcuts on the iPhone.
