iOS 7.1.2 spotted in the ‘wild’

iOS 7.1

Apple have been working towards releasing iOS 8.0 at this years WWDC (Scheduled for 2nd June) however, they are far from abandoning iOS 7.1 and reports are flooding in that 7.1.2 is showing up in weblogs of popular Apple tech related sites.

It would appear 7.1.2 has been seeded to it’s employees for testing, traffic from the devices is still few and far between but it does suggest they will be releasing an update prior to WWDC. The last update (7.1.1) released on 22nd of April was packed to the rafters with bug fixes and some improvements to the way the Touch ID system worked.

There has been no news, as of yet, to what the update will contain. However it’s been strongly suggested that it will fix the encryption and iMessage issues.

Users who have previously jailbroken may want to hold off from upgrading until a new jailbreak is developed. However, this is perhaps unlikely to get much attention with iOS 8 just around the corner.

Will you be updating to 7.1.2? Or will you hold out for 8.0?
