Since iOS 7 was released in September 2013, there have been a number of updates released to fix ongoing problems, including a number of security flaws. The latest one, released in April 2014 , was iOS 7.1.1 and that one didn’t bring too much to the table in terms of new features.

While Apple may consider these releases to be enough, there are still a high proportion of iOS users complaining about bugs and issues that still exist. Some users have complained of their battery draining faster than normal since the latest update, while others say their device has become more unresponsive.
It was widely believed that Apple will unveil iOS 8 during their World Wide Developers Conference and many people said that iOS 7.1.1 would be the last update. However, according to MacRumors, devices running iOS 7.1.2 have shown up on their log in the last week and, while activity is low, it does show that there is another update on the way.

When iOS 8 is revealed to us next week, it will be followed by the release of the first beta to developers. If all goes according to plan, we should the new firmware released publicly sometime in September, just before the new iPhone 6 is released. While Apple has been known to release updates after a new firmware has been released into beta, these are normally to target specific issues, such as something that has an impact on performance or security rather than general updates.
At the moment, it’s looking likely that iOS 7.1.2 will be release in the near future although there are no clues as to what it will target. Perhaps it will be to fix the recent Activation Lock security issues that we highlighted a little while ago.
UPDATE 2 : 02 | 02 | 2015
iOS 8 has been out for a few months now and we are now starting to see signs of iOS 9. Already, the next generation of firmware has been spotted on website analytics and now it has showed up in benchmark tests against iOS 8 and running on an iPhone 6. We expect iOS 9 to be revealed at WWDC in June. More news will follow as and when we hear it
