At the beginning of this week Apple released iOS 7.1.2 – the latest version of the iPad and iPhone operating system.
iOS 7.1.2 brings a fix to a well-known security vulnerability related to attachments and the iOS Mail app. Here’s the brief description text for this latest iOS update:
• Improves iBeacon connectivity and stability
• Fixes a bug with data transfer for some 3rd party accessories, including bar code scanners
• Corrects an issue with data protection class of Mail attachments
The update is available to install over the air via the Software Update section in Settings – it’s only about a 28.8 download – and well worth installing just for the security fix.
