Apple has released iOS 17.1.2, a minor update to iOS 17 and iPadOS 17, which were first released in September.

RBC-Ukraine checked out the MacRumors website, which publishes news, rumors, and reports related to Apple.

What's new in iOS 17.1.2

It's hard to know what changes have been made in iOS 17.1.2. According to some sources, this update is intended to fix problems with wireless charging in BMW cars. Users report that even after removing the case from the iPhone 15 Pro Max, charging is not activated, and this process lasts only 5-10 seconds.

However, there is no exact data on whether the situation has improved. According to reviews on Reddit, even in iOS 17.2 beta 4, the problem with wireless charging persists.

There were also problems with Wi-Fi on some iPhones, where the message "No Internet connection" appeared when connecting to an access point. Although this bug has been fixed in iOS 17.1.1, some users continue to experience this issue.

In any case, installing iOS 17.1.2 is recommended, if only because of the security improvements. At the time of this writing, Apple clarified that the processing of web content could lead to the disclosure of confidential information and was relevant for all versions, including iOS 16.7.1.

How to update iOS on iPhone

As mentioned earlier, iOS 17.1.2 is a minor update that many users often skip without installing it. Currently, there are no problems with downloading this version: the server load is minimal, so updating iOS on iPhone is easy to do.

  • Go to iPhone Settings.
  • Select "General" and then "Updates".
  • Turn off beta updates at the top if you track them, and then search for the new version.
  • Click "Update" to download the new iOS immediately, or "Update tonight" if you want to update your iPhone later.

The size of iOS 17.1.2 is approximately 390 megabytes, so the download process will take only a few minutes. Before downloading, don't forget to turn off your VPN, make sure your iPhone is charged, and connect to a reliable Wi-Fi hotspot to avoid any problems.
