Apple Releases iOS 7.0.6 With Fix for SSL Connection Verification

Apple today released iOS 7.0.6 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, a minor update that includes a fix for SSL connection verification. iOS 7.0.6, which carries a build number of 11b651, is available as an over-the-air-update and weighs in at 35.4MB on an iPhone 5s.

According to an Apple Support Knowledge Base article, the SSL vulnerability allowed a hacker to capture or modify data in supposedly secure sessions.
iOS 7.0.6

Data Security

Available for: iPhone 4 and later, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad 2 and later

Impact: An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS

Description: Secure Transport failed to validate the authenticity of the connection. This issue was addressed by restoring missing validation steps.
iOS 7.0.6 comes three weeks after the release of iOS 7.0.5, which was available only for a limited number of devices and more than three months after the release of iOS 7.0.4, a minor bug-fix update.

Apple has also released iOS 6.1.6 (build 10b500) for the iPhone 3GS and fourth-generation iPod touch.

Ha! The iPhone 3GS (JUNE 2009) is STILL getting updates, when Android devices from 2012 are already abandoned.

Sarcastic. The update has been out for 5 whole minutes. It would be impossible to judge that battery life is doubled in 5 minutes, unless of course said battery life is normally only 2.5 minutes.

Since 7.0.5 was denied to the USA :mad:, I ain't really giving Apple credit for that one.

It wasn't denied, there was just nothing to update for US models in relation to that update.

Said it was 35 MB, required 1.2GB, cleared 1.5GB to free, updated, blue screen popped up, phone is bricked and restoring through iTunes now.

(iPhone 5s)

So...the phone is not bricked.

Not only has there never been a x.x.6 update, but I've never seen them support previous iOS versions like this before. (iOS 6.1.5 and 6.1.6.)

Nice, Apple! :apple:

What do Android updates have anything to do with this article?


Uh... did you read what he posted when you quoted and replied?
Because if you had read and actually understood what you read, it would be obvious.
