Apple appears to be internally testing an iOS 17.1.2 update for the iPhone, based on evidence of the software in our website's analytics logs within the past few days.

iOS-17.1.2-Feature.jpg

As a minor update, iOS 17.1.2 should be focused on bug fixes, but it's unclear exactly which issues might be addressed. Some users have continued to experience Wi-Fi issues on iOS 17.1.1, released earlier this month, so perhaps iOS 17.1.2 will include the same fix for Wi-Fi connectivity issues that Apple included in the iOS 17.2 beta. Some users have also experienced minor bugs related to push notifications and HomeKit.

Apple typically does not release any software updates or betas during the week of U.S. Thanksgiving, as most corporate employees in the company are given the full week off due to the holiday. This means that iOS 17.1.2 is likely to be released next week, similar to how iOS 16.1.2 was released on November 30 last year.

iOS 17.1.1 already fixed a BMW wireless charging issue affecting the iPhone 15 lineup, and an issue preventing the Weather app widget from showing a snow icon.

iOS 17.2 has been in beta testing for nearly a month now, and it is expected to be released in mid-December. The update includes many new features and changes, including Apple's new Journal app, support for spatial video recording on iPhone 15 Pro models, a Translate option for the Action button on iPhone 15 Pro models, the ability for Apple Music subscribers to collaborate on playlists, an iMessage Contact Key Verification security option for high-profile individuals, additional Weather and Clock widgets, and more.

Hopefully this will fix the issued I've been having with Safari on both of my iPads, where it freezes when waking the iPad, sometimes for over a minute on the smaller one (both are Pros with M1's).

Still hoping for that "punch-out" release where they concentrate heavily on bug fixes and shoring up features that have been promised rather than feature additions.

I'd really like to be more than just content with my purchase decision of Apple devices. All of the alternatives are worse in my opinion.

I've come across a bug in iOS 17, or when updating to 17.1.1, that users can ignore the update and "swipe" the "update now" message away.
Could be a MDM MS Intune issue but feels like its something that's changed with iOS 17. Hopefully they'll solve this (if its an Apple issue and not MS) so that users can't snooze the updates forever.

I wish! Every job I've had gives us Thursday and Friday, and Wednesday ends up being a kind of "dead day".

I'm sure you have NO idea how many were affected by this bug. And I'm also sure that if you were affected, you'd be complaining most vociferously. Are you really suggesting that if a problem only affects a few people, it shouldn't be fixed??
Whoa! Calm down there speedy. I’m not Apple so I don’t know how they prioritize bug fixes, I’m just saying, the iPhone still has a port so wireless isn’t the ONLY way to charge your device while driving a BMW (which not everyone has said model). There are far more users who don’t drive that car, and ALL of those users have a Lightning/USB-C port on their iPhones. However, maybe the bugs I’ve experienced are just local to me (even after updating/restoring) on my iPhone 15 Pro.
