Apple Preparing Minor iOS 17.5.2 Update for iPhone [Updated]

Apple is preparing to release a minor iOS 17.5.2 update for the iPhone, according to a post shared today by an anonymous leaker on X, formerly known as Twitter. The leaker has a private account, so we are not identifying it or linking to it, but they have proven to be a consistently accurate source for upcoming iOS updates.

General iOS 17 Feature Orange Purple
Nothing is known about iOS 17.5.2, beyond the leaker claiming that the update will have a build number of 21F101. However, the update will almost certainly be a minor one, especially given that Apple is now focused on iOS 18 beta testing. iPhone users still running iOS 17 can expect the update to include bug fixes and/or security patches.

It is unclear when iOS 17.5.2 will be released to the public, but updates revealed by this leaker typically become available within a few weeks after they post on social media, so it will likely be released at some point in July.

iOS 17.5.2 will come out ahead of iOS 17.6 and iOS 18, which both remain in beta testing. The second beta of iOS 17.6 was released to developers and public beta testers last week, while the third beta of iOS 18 was seeded to developers earlier today. So far, no major changes have been discovered in iOS 17.6.

Update July 13: The leaker now says that this update has been "scrapped."

Hope they finally fix the overheating issue because my 15 Pro is running hot.
The easiest way to overheat your iPhone is to accidentally trip the camera app while it is in your pocket.

It never fails to amuse me that every time Apple comes up with a new iOS update, they seemingly make Siri even worse. ?‍♂️

I skipped iOS 17 entirely. Overall… were people generally happy with it? It seemed to have started off to a rocky start
Quite honestly, I feel that anything after IOS15 has been "problematic". In the sense, IOS 15 and older I would rarely reboot my phone because it was acting up. Now I seem to reboot at least once a week on IOS 17 and when I was on 16.

For what it is---17.5.1 and been the "best of the worst" so far. I have a 15 PM for work and 15 Plus personal and both run good with the occasional hiccup or scroll stutter from time to time.
