Download iOS 7.1.2 IPSW

As expected, iOS 7.1.2 has now been released for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The release is not a large one but has been pushed out to fix a couple of issues, namely bugs that relate to the encryption of mail attachments and iMessage delivery and a lock screen bug. Also fixed is an issue with the transfer of data through third party accessories, such as bar code scanners and iBeacon connection and stability has been improved.

If you are already updated to iOS 7.1 or 7.1.1, we recommend that you download and install this update. The mail attachment bug first surfaced a little while back when Andreas Kurtz, a security expert, uploaded a video clip to YouTube showing it. Apple is normally pretty quick to respond to such issues so it is somewhat surprising that it has taken them so long to issue a fix this time.

Initially, because the bug has been in existence since iOS 7, a jailbreak tweak was released to help out but, for those who haven’t jailbroken their devices, it seems that at long last, apple has come to the rescue.

How to Download and Install iOS 7.1.2 :

If you have not jailbroken your device you should update to iOS 7.1.2 immediately. There are three ways to download the update :

OTA  Method : 

  1. On your home screen open Settings 
  2. Tap on General
  3. Tap on Software Update ios 7 ota update
  4. Allow your device to search for the new update and then click on Download and Install

iTunes Method : 

  1. Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod to your computer and open iTunes
  2. Click on Device summary itunes summary connect to computer

  5. iTunes will update your device to the latest firmware iphone 5s apple logo icon power

iTunes with iOS 7.1.2 IPSW Files :

  1. Download the correct iOS 7.1.2 IPSW from the list below
  2. Connect your device to your PC and open iTunes itunes ios 8

If you intend to jailbreak, do not use the OTA (Over the Air method) as it is not compatible with the jailbreak utilities. The preferred method is through iTunes.

      1. quick question to the experts> I am currently running IOS 7.0.3 on my 4s. and since I updated through OTA I am unable to jailbreak it. can I still upgrade to 7.1.2 by above method andd try the evasi0n jailbreak. Appreciate your answer.

  1. I have entered new payment method at least 4 times on order to purchase more storage specifically 20G and transaction isn’t reflecting in an upgrade of storage nor in my bank account. Help!! I need to upgrade to either IOS 7.2 or IOS 8. (Whichever is the best option) HELP!!!!!!!!

    1. LOL what does this even mean, you understand that this isn’t Apple right? also buying more Icloud storage will NOT help your device running out of space (unless you migrate to Icloud Drive and move your content over). Also how would adding storage show reflect storage in your bank account! Start reading the sites you visit!

  2. im stuck I didn’t mean to download ios 8 but my ipad did but I want to jailbreak it but it says do u want ios 8 on my iTunes help

  3. Downloaded the zipfile. iTunes couldn’t open it. Tried unzipping it, but again without success. What am I missing?

  4. The Apple servers are terrible at the moment Sep 23rd 2014! Downloads timeout, finish early etc etc.. using different computers, browsers etc.. Strange that IE9 actually downloaded more before timing out!

  5. Will hhis harm my iPhone? I got my iPhone 4s for christmas, and this new update is making it VERY slow, and it is crahing a lot. I NEED to get it back to iOS 7, but I am very scared that the software will mess up my phone/computer. Anybody had any problems?

    1. I got same problem, but I made an actualization 2 days after buying iPhone 4S. I can’t believe in what I see -- iPhone is slower than cheap android. I’m afraid of installing iOS 7 from this site (Apple don’t support downgrades, though) because of losing a guarantee or sth.

      1. RONG!!! apple dose allow you to downgrade just go to a LOCAL APPLE STORE! pay a small fee and their u go downgraded after afew mins :P

  6. ios 7.1.2 is plagued with sound issues…the speaker sounds keep coming & going in my iph… my friends, cousn’s and sister’s phone all have microphone issues during calls…. And since we were all content with our iph 4’s now we’r stuck without a fix in sight.

  7. Hi Everyone… While downloading the iOS 7.1.2 from the link for my iPhone 5s, I notice that the file name starts with “iPhone6,1…”. Am I downloading correctly? Is this the correct 7.1.2 file for 5s? Please advise, thanks.

  8. Salut,
    J’ai possède un iPhone 4S turbo SIM, après la mise à jour pour IOS 8, pour configuration le server dit que mon identifiant Apple ne peut pas activer ledit téléphone.
    NB: je ne suis le premier propriétaire du dudit téléphone et je l’ignore, mais avant la mise à jour de l’IOS 8 je n’avait pas ce problème.
    Que peux-je faire pour activer le téléphone?
    Je compte beaucoup sur vous!

  9. Hey someone tell me why my app icon went away how do I get it back it’s my App Store I can’t dl new apps with out it

  10. i was updating the 7.1.2, and after clicking the firmware i downloaded from here it says The iphone could not be restored because the firmware files is not compatible, i’m using iphone 5s and upon downloading the files name shows iphone6, 1_7.1.2_11 did i had the wrong link?

  11. Every time I try to download IOS 7.1 it says there are no updates and my phone is not compatible what does it do? So far NOTHING.

  12. I have this doubt, actually i have ios 8 on a iPad mini wi fi, all i have to do is download the correspondient file from the list and use it like the new update in itunes?, then update and restore my device, it´s all right?, sorry about all, I know the instrutions are pretty clear but this is my first time and I´m so much nervious. I just want to jailbreak my device but, does it means that i can´t turn it off?, I read on internet tan if I jailbreak my iPad everytime i want to turn it on I must do it while it is connected to my pc or mcac in itunes. Also, Should I change the actual date in orden to jailbreak my device?, and if I shoul, that´s means that I can´t put the real date?
