Apple Said To Be Prepping A Bug-Fixing iOS 7.1.1 Update

April 17, 2014

It looks like Apple is gearing up to launch iOS 7.1.1, a minor update for its mobile operating system.

The news reached us from 9to5mac, which explains that an increasing number of visits to its website from iOS 7.1.1-powered devices located inside and around Apple’s Cupertino HQ have been appearing in its Web analytics. In the past, such activity has served as a reliable indication that an update for iOS devices is in preparation.

As the publication rightly notes, “The uptake in views likely indicates that the bug fix update will come over-the-air to iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches in the near future.”

Not long ago, we explained how a bug in Apple’s recent iOS 7.1 software update allows users to disable Find My iPhone, remove iCloud, and subsequently restore an iPhone handset without entering its owner’s Apple ID credentials. This, along with a number of more minor bugs in the software, should be corrected in iOS 7.1.1.

We’ll let you know once iOS 7.1.1 launches as an over-the-air (OTA) update. As with iOS 7.1, jailbreakers are of course advised to avoid the update until a compatible jailbreak solution has been developed.
