The latest release of Apple's iPad and iPhone operating systems, due out today, has a bug that requires users to follow a different process when setting up a new VPN configuration. It doesn’t affect existing configurations.

We've identified a bug in the latest release of Apple's iOS and iPadOS operating systems that affects new UIS VPN configurations. If you already have the VPN set up on your iPad or iPhone and then upgrade to the new operating system, your VPN configuration will be unaffected.

If you're running iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 on your device and need to set up a new UIS VPN configuration, you'll need to follow our workaround VPN set-up instructions for iOS 14.

We've reported the issue to the Apple and hope they will fix it soon.
