iOS 6.1.4 Update For iPhone 5 Released, Tweaks Speakerphone Profile
Apple on Thursday released iOS 6.1.4, an iPhone 5 only update, which delivers an “updated audio profile for speakerphone”.
Normally Apple incorporates security fixes into iOS updates, but at present there’s no word as to whether this update patches any vulnerabilities.
According to the change log, the 6.1.4 update brings ‘updated audio profile for loudspeaker’. The update is just 11.5MB in size, should only take a few minutes for the download process to fully complete, and currently available for download on the iPhone 5. If you have any other iOS device, don’t bother checking as it’s not available for them.
To update your iPhone 5 to the latest and greatest software, open Settings -> General -> Software Update and tap Download and Install when the update appears. You can also connect your phone to your computer and apply the update from iTunes, or download it manually from Apple’s support site.
The last update, 6.1.3, was released in March and fixed six flaws, four of which were found by the jailbreaking hacking crew evad3rs who used the flaws in a popular jailbreak for iOS 6.0 to 6.2.
Apple engineers are racing to finish iOS 7 to preview it the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference this June, according to Bloomberg.
iOS 7 should hit devices around October.
