Tech information websites, together with Macworld, have noticed proof that iOS 17.1.1 is already being examined for an imminent rollout.
MacRumors on Thursday revealed a information story stating that its analytics logs point out that “Apple seems to be internally testing an iOS 17.1.1 replace for the iPhone.” The positioning didn’t present any extra particulars from the logs, corresponding to the quantity or supply of iOS 17.1.1-based site visitors, however the implication is that they got here from Apple’s inside testing group.
Right here at Macworld we checked our personal logs, and in addition noticed a lone customer on November 2 utilizing Safari and iOS 17.1.1. My colleague and Google Analytics knowledgeable, Karen Haslam, was capable of interrogate the logs to get additional insights: particularly that the customer was utilizing a 390 x 844 machine (probably an iPhone 12/13/14 or 13 Professional), and that the customer was primarily based in Sunnyvale, the place Apple Campus 3 is positioned. Case closed!
iOS 17.1.1 will probably give attention to bug fixes and safety updates somewhat than new iPhone options. We will not make certain what bugs Apple will attempt to handle, although the random shutdown situation, which wasn’t mounted with iOS 17.1, could also be on the high of the listing. The replace might arrive as early as subsequent week alongside the brand new M3 MacBook Professionals and iMac.
In the meantime, iOS 17.2 is about to incorporate the Journal app and different vital modifications and new options. This model is already accessible in beta, however probably will not be launched till December.
