iOS 7.1.2 update now released, possible problem fixes


There seems to be a huge amount of news in the mobile world at the moment and that’s why we hadn’t quite got round to giving you news about the latest iOS update that released yesterday. Apple’s iOS 7.1.2 is now available for owners of many iOS devices bringing various improvements and changes, and hopefully it could fix some problems.

We first heard that this update was in testing back in May and then in June we reported that it would be arriving soon and would include fixes, hopefully for various problems that emerged with the iOS 7.1.1 update. We often hear from readers after OS updates about various issues and iOS 7.1.1 was no exception, with complaints about battery life and more.

Now iOS 7.1.2 has finally arrived as an over-the-air update and brings several changes, although this is not a major update. Those changes include connectivity and stability improvements for iBeacon, a fix for an acknowledged issue concerning data protection of Mail attachments, and also a fix for a data transfer bug that was affecting some 3rd party accessories such as bar code scanners.

The size of the OTA update is around 30MB for the iPad or 32MB for the iPhone and it has build number 11D257. Users of compatible iOS devices should receive notification of the update soon if they haven’t already. For a download via iTunes the update is about 1.4GB. You can find also find download links at the source below.

Apple’s iOS 8 is scheduled to release to the public in fall but for now we’re really interested to hear from readers about Apple iOS 7.1.2. We always welcome iOS updates and although this 7.1.2 includes fixes it’s not clear yet whether this will solve the issues affecting battery life that many readers had reported to us.

We’d like to know if everything went smoothly with your device update to iOS 7.1.2? In particular we’d like to find out whether any problems you had from iOS 7.1.1 have been resolved with this latest update? Please do send us your comments to let us know.

    I have an iPhone 4 and just attempted to update to iOS 7.1.2. It has killed my iPhone!! What a disaster! I have tried a hard re-boot. Several times. It doesn’t work! All I get is an occasional Apple with the screen completely screwed up, fuzzy halo like the Moon with high humidity atmosphere. I am NOT happy!!! I can’t sync because I have to put in my lock screen code . . . which, of course I can’t put in.

      Connect your phone to PC and press and hold both home and sleep button for about 10 seconds. iTunes should detect your phone in recovery mode. Now restore your phone. You can later on restore a backup existing in your record.

    The battery drain on my iPhone is ridiculous. I just turned off all the features possible and am watching the battery continue to drain on at a steady rate. It’s not a workable situation

    I just updated to 7.1.2 and it fixed the battery problem I was having with my iPhone 5. It’s been about 3 hours now from a 100% charge its down to 96% which is pretty good

    What a mess – just updated my iphone 5 and I have nothing but the BSOD. Put the iPhone in recovery mode and tried restoring through iTunes but continual error 9 – tried on two different macs one with no security software (the potential issue for error 9) and still got the BSOD. Not quite sure where to go from here. Apple support useless as they want to send stuff to the device which is useless at the moment.
    This is the second time this has happened to me with an iOS update.

    Apple again has their head up their arnse as the people having problems with the new 7.1.2 update causing problems for everyone from i4 to the i5s. Apple sent me the update for my new i5s and It shut down and will not turn back on In anyway. I guess I will wait till morning, to see If It will reboot. As many updates as Apple has had to do In the past several years you would think they could get It right. Nadda, maybe possible they will get It by upgrade 17.1.2, again apple drops Its opportunity to impress or should I say get It right for a change,

    Since update 7.1.2 my phone continually flashes the sign in page on screen but won,t let me sign in, changed the password and still nothing. Can,t even get to restore it because of the continual flashing of the sign in box which won,t allow any other actions. Now have to resort to my pay as you go stand by phone !! Not impressed
