Within three months of its previous iOS 7.1.1 update Apple plans to release new update, iOS 7.1.2, which it has distributed to carrier partners for testing. According to a report by MacRumors, the update has a number of bug fixes, security patches and a resolution to an email encryption issue which was discovered in April. The issue prevents email attachments to be saved with proper encryption protection. Besides addressing the email encryption issue, the new update iOS 7.1.2 will also resolve the bug due to which the Mail app fails to download email messages.
iOS 7.1.2 update will also fix Lock Screen vulnerability that allows access to “limited apps” during the lock mode, which is probably through the missed call notification. Another bug fix is related to the data transfer with third-party accessories. iOS 7.1.2 update will include improvements to iBeacon connectivity. The long standing problem with iMessage that arises when a user switches from an iOS to a non-iOS device may also be fixed.
