iOS 7.1.2

iOS 7.1.2 was the last update before iOS 8 was released. Many users have got as far as 7.1.2 and gone no further, partly because of the jailbreak and partly because they wanted to wait for the problems on iOS 8 to be resolved first.

ios 7 missed call bug ios 7.1.2

The update was not a big one, mainly to fix a mail encryption bug and a lock screen bug, along with an issue with third party accessories and iBeacon. The mail bug appeared when iOS 7 was first released in September 2013 but for some reason it took Apple a while to fix it. To start with, the jailbreak community came to the rescue, providing a fix but now, for those who didn’t jailbreak, it has at long last been sorted by Apple.
