Apple releases iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 with updated audio profile

By , May 2, 2013

iOS 6.1.4 software update

Apple has, unexpectedly, released a new version of iOS this morning. The update brings the firmware to 6.1.4, and doesn’t appear to include any new features or changes other than an ‘updated audio profile.’

The new software is currently only available via OTA (over the air update), but it should be posted online shortly. As usual, jailbreakers will want to stay away from the update, as it will not work with evasi0n

Apparently, the update is specifically for iPhone 5 users. But with just the single, seemingly minor, public-facing change, we don’t see any reason why you would want to install it on your handset.

Of course, Apple could have made some behind-the-scene changes as well. So if you’d like to check it out, you can find iOS 6.1.4 on our Downloads page. Once downloaded, you can install the update through iTunes.

This is the first update since Apple killed the evasi0n jailbreak in iOS 6.1.3, and presumably the last one until we see iOS 7. Apple will be previewing the next version of its mobile OS at its WWDC event next month.

    weird? Wonder why it was released in that case?

    • http://twitter.com/Lagax_ Lagax

      They may found a big security hole or something. 11.5 MB seems a lot for just that.

      • Dmaez

        That would make the most sense.

      • http://twitter.com/erny_c Erny Carrillo

        Yea but for Apple to admit that, they’d have to kill us lol.
        Hopefully ios 7 doesnt go back n forth so much like all these small updates ios 6 have done here in a small time period.

      • Dmaez

        Eh I am no rush I will hold onto my jb phone as long as I can.

  • http://twitter.com/monster_hazardo Roger Riekki

    That’s such a small update, why did Apple even bother?

    • http://twitter.com/dallasgroot Dallas Groot

      A small update can mean allot to other users. This could be for t-mobile audio hd support? Who knows

      • guito mendez

        then wouldn’t they just push to tmobile users only, and not the other carriers.

      • http://twitter.com/burlow burlow

        I don’t think they would first check to see if you’re on t-mobile. if the handset can do “hd” voice, apple will want it supported in the event the phone later makes it onto the network.

      • disqus_5Dp6NQJMbZ

        No actually the audio hd is already supported.

    • felixtaf

      @Lagax’s comment sounds reasonable…

  • Mohammad Ridwan

    Is Apple trolling us ?

    • Gorgonphone

      llololololol

  • King

    Still on jailbroken 6.1.2 ;)

    • http://www.facebook.com/usermoraes Rodrigo Moraes

      hah right? 6.1 jb here

      • Ian

        I lost it 2 days ago. AGH.

  • Ignacio Irigoyen

    Trying to trap more jailbreakers into updating?

  • http://kcain.com/ KC

    Ridiculous. So many people have reported ongoing wifi issues with 6.1.3, and this update includes no mention of them even caring apparently. My wife’s 4S wouldn’t even hold connectivity to our home wifi for more than 3 secs, and after taking it to the Apple Store, they gave her a new phone. Something’s wrong but they don’t seem to be acknowledging it.

    • Gorgonphone

      restore

    • Michelle

      I am having the same issues with some additional ones. My Verison, Iphone will not connect to the net, it will not find any network including my home network, it will not stay connected to phone calls and if it does the calls break up so badly one could not make out what the other is saying. All of this happened after the latest update. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Verison is sending me a third replacement phone and SIM card. which probably won’t help either! Pissed!

  • Chuck Norris

    My mom thinks jailbreak is illegal… It annoys me.

      If you’re really Chuck Norris, then you should be able to roundhouse kick anything or anyone that annoys you…

    • felixtaf

      She must have read some news somewhere… :-)

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alexander-Novarro/1499444086 Alexander Novarro

        well just show her the news proving it’s not!

      • felixtaf

        We all know how Chuck Norris operates… Lets talk to Chuck and see wat happens… lol

      • Gorgonphone

        isnt he gay?

    • deepdvd

      Breaking out of jail is illegal. What should be illegal is Apple putting our phones in “jail” Just tell her there are quotes around the “jail” part. Then she’ll feel much better. Or not.

    • Gorgonphone

      she is right… if you break out or jail early you need to be sent back ASAP

    • YoMAMAneedHELP

      Show her your phone is jailbroken right on her face and tell her you are waiting for the cops to find you.
      Also, tell her that jail is much better place to live in rather in a house with annoying woman like her.

  • Justine Tobi Dayao

    Fix the WIFI connectivity issues we are having. My push notifs are delayed because of it.

  • koonlay

    I will never download any update until another jailbreak is available- even if Apple says its update can mint money!

    • Kaptivator

      I’ll take minting money for 1000 Alex.

      • Gorgonphone

        can i buy a vowel please.???

      • genXhippie

        Wrong game show, bud. ;) You’re thinking Wheel of Fortune,while Kaptivator referring to Jeopardy.

      • Gorgonphone

        okay umm am guessing its costs $34.23

  • http://www.facebook.com/barry.peeters.9 Barry Peeters

    What if this isn’t the last update? Those who updated from 6.1.2 would be screwed.

  • http://twitter.com/jordibull24 Jordi

    Does this come with iPod touch 5 as well ?

    • Bill Gates

      *specifically for iPhone 5 users

        Im pretty sure based on its name, that he doesn’t know how to express sarcasm with grammar or he finds it amusing. Probably its his first day on the Internet.

      • Mohammed Sahib

        Judging people with prejudice, aren’t we?

      • iDon’tWantToShareMyDetails

        Most definitely Its not a racism its just well placed bet. Like saying Iranian people call everyone brother and unlock phones. Its not a racial thing, its just how things are. If you want to take it as racism, i can’t change your mind.

    • Gorgonphone

      you are not lucky.. folks on 6.1.2 are lucky its damn perfect and has all the latest features and works with all the coolest JB tweaks

  • http://www.facebook.com/sriram.varadarajulu Sriram Harvind Varadarajulu

    iOS 7 beta!! Y u no arrived yet!!!

  • Andrew

    I believe this is related to the sound issue when using Siri on the ip5. If you try to use Siri, all sounds across the ui become so low in volume that u can barely hear anything. This has happened to me before jailbreaking and after so I don’t think it has anything to do with the evasi0n jb. However it is much easier to fix this issue when your jailbroken because a simple respring clears it up. However if your not jailbroken then you have to reset the device. Anyone else have these symptoms.

    • http://twitter.com/FreddyPancakes Brian Coates

      Actually, I updated midday yesterday to 6.1.4. Later on, in the evening, I was listening to music, using Google Maps, and brought up Siri to send a text while I was driving. When I closed Siri, my volumes were lowered. Additionally, I had an option to play through my headphone cable, or through the phone speakers. Maybe a coincidence that I’d never had this happen before the update?

      • Andrew

        Weird.

  • http://twitter.com/shay6695 Shay Shtern

    I remember that Pod2g said that if Apple will realse a new version – Above iOS 6.1.3 – Like 6.1.4 or iOS 7, THEY WILL JailBREAK it. am I right?

    • Gorgonphone

      yeah but that won’t happen.. i dont even care any more..
