Apple Preparing to Release iOS 17.1.2 Update for iPhone

Apple appears to be internally testing an iOS 17.1.2 update for the iPhone, based on evidence of the software in our website's analytics logs within the past few days.

iOS 17
As a minor update, iOS 17.1.2 should be focused on bug fixes, but it's unclear exactly which issues might be addressed. Some users have continued to experience Wi-Fi issues on iOS 17.1.1, released earlier this month, so perhaps iOS 17.1.2 will include the same fix for Wi-Fi connectivity issues that Apple included in the iOS 17.2 beta. Some users have also experienced minor bugs related to push notifications and HomeKit.

Apple typically does not release any software updates or betas during the week of U.S. Thanksgiving, as most corporate employees in the company are given the full week off due to the holiday. This means that iOS 17.1.2 is likely to be released next week, similar to how iOS 16.1.2 was released on November 30 last year.

iOS 17.1.1 already fixed a BMW wireless charging issue affecting the iPhone 15 lineup, and an issue preventing the Weather app widget from showing a snow icon.

iOS 17.2 has been in beta testing for nearly a month now, and it is expected to be released in mid-December. The update includes many new features and changes, including Apple's new Journal app, support for spatial video recording on iPhone 15 Pro models, a Translate option for the Action button on iPhone 15 Pro models, the ability for Apple Music subscribers to collaborate on playlists, an iMessage Contact Key Verification security option for high-profile individuals, additional Weather and Clock widgets, and more.

If only Jobs was still around…
He'd tell us all the problems we're experiencing with iOS 17 is due to us holding the iPhone wrong ?

Whew! Sure glad that BMW bug was fixed. I’m sure that affected a LOT of users ?
I'm sure you have NO idea how many were affected by this bug. And I'm also sure that if you were affected, you'd be complaining most vociferously. Are you really suggesting that if a problem only affects a few people, it shouldn't be fixed??

They should fix the battery life on my 15 Pro Max.
4-5 hours of screen on time is not good.

It's mind blowing how many people don't seem to want frequent bugfix updates.

Would you prefer your phones be buggy for longer so you don't have to update as often? Jeez just tell it to update overnight, go to sleep and wake up to updated phone. It's not a big deal.

I would prefer they actually used the Beta program the way it was meant to be used. You have all these betas and the final product is still buggy.
