This week, Apple has released iOS 12.4.1 to the public. As the version number suggests, this is a minor update in the grand scheme of things. At the time of publication it’s not known what, exactly, iOS 12.4.1 brings to the table. However, the safe bet is that the new software will be improving the overall performance of the mobile operating system, while squashing any bugs behind-the-scenes.
Other general improvements will more than likely be included as well.
The update is available as an over-the-air fix. To access it, select the Settings app –> General –> Software Update. If you have Automatic Updates switched on, your device will update the next time it’s charging.
While specifics might not be known at this time, it’s likely that this software update will address a recently discovered jailbreak created by hackers for iOS 12.4. The jailbreak was made possible after Apple accidentally unpatched the vulnerability in the public update to iOS 12.4, after Apple actually patched the initial issue with iOS 12.3.
Once we know more about iOS 12.4.1, we will update this post accordingly.
Apple updated to iOS 12.4 back in July.
