iPhone and iPad owners are now able to download iOS 11.4.1 final version IPSW (manual) and OTA update as the Cupertino-based company has pushed the latest iOS platform into the public domain.
This release is nothing for those who are already focused on iOS 12 and its pre-releases. But the release of iOS 11.4.1 means that hardware owners are not only going to get the latest update on their device but to also ascertain exactly what has changed and what areas of the platform they should be testing to experience these new features.
Thankfully, we are in front of a full public release of a new version of iOS, and where it is concerned more, Apple does a fairly good job of communicating the changes, improvements, additions, and security enhancements through the release of accompanying release notes. Many won’t even touch a new version of iOS until they had read, understood, and genuinely accepted the accompanying release notes and then proceed with. Other, however, will simply press install, read the documentation later, and accept terms and conditions, etc.
Form a feature and new additions perspective, iOS 11.4.1 final isn’t going to stop here, rather ready to set your excitement levels to all-time highs. Because it doesn’t actually carry any real new features or functionality. Instead, as the naming convention suggests, it contains bug fixes, improvements, and under-the-hood enhancements.
With iOS 12 out for testing, and with public testers and developers alike getting involved in that rodeo, most individuals have already moved on to the next segment. However, it is still clear that there is some life left in iOS 11.
Here’s the official Apple release notes for iOS 11.4.1:
iOS 11.4.1 includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad. This update:
– Fixes an issue that prevented some users from viewing the last known location of their AirPods in Find My iPhone.
– Improves reliability of syncing mail, contacts and notes with Exchange accounts.
One thing to note about releases of this nature is that Apple has typically given developers and the passionate public access to the software for at least few weeks prior to the public release. So that testers have had an opportunity to put the software through its paces and now they have another opportunity to see it in action in the real-world, pushed out over-the-air to real devices, in use of a daily basis by real individuals.
