    Apple releases iOS 10.3.1.JPG

    9to5 Mac reports that Apple has today released iOS 10.3.1, which brings back support for 32-bit devices, as well as featuring other bug fixes.

    When iOS 10.3 was released it did not support 32-bit devices, but that has now been rectified with the latest update, which restores 32-bit device support for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. Last week Apple released the iOS 10.3.2 beta 1 for developers. At that time one might have been forgiven for thinking that Apple had missed out on iOS 10.3.1 entirely, but now the reason for the jump to iOS 10.3.2 has been made clear.

    Apple’s limited release notes state that the update also fixes a Wi-Fi vulnerability that was found by Gal Beniamini of Google Project Zero, whereby a person with malicious intent that was in range would be able to execute “arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip.” Describing how it fixed the vulnerability, Apple said that “a stack buffer overflow was addressed through improved input validation.”

    I noticed a week or two prior to the public release of 10.3 a high rate of app updates. 10.3.1 followed too close to 10.3 to judge, but I see now a high rate of updates again; several each day. Assuming that developers have access to betas of updates sometime prior to general release, in order to make sure that their apps will be compatible, I wonder if the current updates indicate yet another imminent system update? ... and hence something new on the way? Simply speculating.

    (Obviously anyone in the know cannot comment if they want to know about subsequent upates ...)

    The recent update has stabilized my iPhone more. The previous one was a bit glitchy and the apps were more often malfunctioning.

    It doesn't look like iOS 10.3.2 will come very soon.

    We're on the third beta now, but there's no way to tell in advance when the next public release will be.

    Agreed.
    As far as I've noticed, official iOS versions haven been released after making Public and Developer Beta available at the same time, more than once. That hasn't happened yet. Thus my conclusion that the next iOS update won't happen very soon (within the next week). I could be wrong, though.
