Last month, a report suggested that Apple is working on the iOS 7.1.2 update, which may bring several bug fixes and enhancements, including email encryption bug where the email attachments were saved in an unencrypted state, giving attackers access to the email attachments, and more.
According to a new report from MacRumors, Apple is prepping up the iOS 7.1.2 update, and has started seeding it to carrier partners for testing with build 11D257.
They say the update could launch in the next two weeks as carrier partners are asked to sign the update by June 27th, so that it could roll out a week later for public.
Macrumors, citing their sources, say that Apple will fix some important issues in the upcoming iOS 7.1.2 update, including the email encryption issue, a lock screen vulnerability which give users access to limited apps, as well as iBeacon connectivity, and possibly the iMessage bug which haunted users who switched from iPhone to non-iOS devices — although there’s no confirmation about the iMessage bug, but it should be fixed in the upcoming release.
Let’s just wait for Apple to release the latest iOS 7.1.2 and hope the major bugs are fixed in this release. Apple has also showcased iOS 8 earlier this month, which is expected to roll out this fall, possibly alongside the new iPhone 6. We’ll update you as soon as Apple releases iOS 7.1.2.
