Apple Preparing iOS 17.4.1 Update for iPhone

Apple appears to be internally testing iOS 17.4.1 for the iPhone, based on evidence of the software update in our website's logs this week.

iOS 17
Our logs have revealed the existence of several iOS 17 versions before Apple released them, ranging from iOS 17.0.3 to iOS 17.3.1.

iOS 17.4.1 should be a minor update that addresses software bugs and/or security vulnerabilities.

It is unclear when iOS 17.4.1 will be released, but the update's appearance in our logs suggests it will likely be available this week or next week.

Apple is also internally testing iOS 17.5, which should be available for beta testing soon.

I’ve not updated to 17.4 due to the EU’s interference with the software. I was hoping to see a post here about its functionality but alas no info makes me even more nervous.
Believe it or not. EU citizens can still use their iPhones as always. But Apples brainwashing is also working outside the EU.

Unsurprising given how huge the 17.4 update was and how much it changed behind the scenes.

Ha I’ll be that guy this time. I hope it fixes the battery drain. Noticed a lot of fast discharge on both watch and phone since 17.4. Was a lot better on .3
