iOS 17.1.2 Update for iPhone Likely to Be Released This Week

Apple will likely release iOS 17.1.2 this week, based on mounting evidence of the software in our website's analytics logs in recent 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, so perhaps iOS 17.1.2 will include the same fix for Wi-Fi connectivity issues that Apple already included in the iOS 17.2 beta. Some users have also experienced minor bugs related to push notifications, HomeKit, and more.

iOS 16.1.2 was released during the week after U.S. Thanksgiving last year, so there is precedent for a bug-fix update being released this week.

iOS 17.1.2 would be the second bug-fix update for the iPhone this month after iOS 17.1.1, which fixed a BMW wireless charging issue affecting the iPhone 15 lineup, and an issue preventing the Weather app widget from showing a snow icon.

Following iOS 17.1.2, Apple is expected to release iOS 17.2, which has been in beta testing for around a month now. The update includes many new features and changes, including Apple's 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.

No more new stuff until we get an IOS that just works. A big bunch of bloated software that may be nice to have for some. I would love to see the usage numbers on all these new features. Most of them are just plain annoying.

I'd like to see that wi-fi connection fix in 17.1.2. I experience frequent loss of data when on wi-fi. I have to switch to cellular data to have it start working again. Once I do, I can toggle wi-fi back on and it will work. However, this cycle of events is annoying af.

Hope they fix the consistent bug in Music that causes the music to stop after 2 songs for some people.
