iOS 7.1.2 expected to fix issues with email, lock screen, and iBeacons
The next update to iOS won't be the substantial iOS 8 — instead it'll be bug fixes in the form of iOS 7.1.2. Apple has been testing the incremental iOS update for at least a month, though until recently we couldn't tell you what might be inside it. Now we have a better idea: bug fixes, as one would expect from a 7.1.X update.
According to MacRumors, the public release is near:
Apple has apparently asked carriers to sign off on the update by Friday, June 27, indicating that a public release could occur the following week. According to sources, the build of iOS 7.1.2 does indeed address the email attachment encryption issue, as well as a bug in downloading emails. Also included in the update is a fix for a lock screen vulnerability that could allow access to "limited apps". While we can't say for certain, Apple may be referring to the "missed call" lock screen bug publicized earlier this month.
Additionally, iOS 7.1.2 is reported to improve iBeacons connectivity and third-party accessory data transfers.
