Apple is now started rolling out iOS 11.2.1 update for eligible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, as well as tvOS 11.2.1 update for the Apple TV. Apple’s iOS 11.2.1 update comes with bug fixes, including for an issue where remote access for the Home app was disabled by Apple to shared users earlier this month as a vulnerability fix. With the new updates, Apple has promptly restored access for all users. In its release notes, Apple says, “iOS 11.2.1 fixes bugs including an issue that could disable remote access to shared users of the Home app.”
The bug in iOS 11 was giving unauthorised access to the Home app, and according to Apple’s Security update page, it could allow a “remote attacker” to unexpectedly alter the application state. Apple’s simultaneous update for iOS 11 and tvOS will fix this issue.
iOS 11.2.1 is now available to download for iPhone 5s and later, iPad Air and later, and iPod touch 6th generation. tvOS 11.2.1 is available for Apple TV 4 and 4k variants. The update is roughly 60MB to 70MB in size depending on your device. It also fixes an autofocus issue that some iPhone and iPad users reportedly faced after updating to iOS 11.2.
iOS users can download this update by going into Settings > General > Software Update and checking for the update. Once it appears, click on Download and Install; the update will automatically get installed on the device. Users are advised to charge over 50 percent or connect it to a power source and back up your data before proceeds also use a Wi-Fi connection to download the over-the-air update.
