There will be and 7.1.2 and 7.1.3 because still there are UI glitches and other bugs.Furthermore, till iOS 8 public release long period.
If you base the trends on last year iOS 6 updates stopped when iOS 7 was announced.

Yea, didn't we see this like two months ago on macrumors front page.

Edit: apparently it was a similar stupid bug.

Someone actually brought it up just a bit earlier at http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1722556

As far as updates, there's still plenty of time for bug-fix updates to come out even before iOS 8 is actually announced, and certainly more can come after that as well if they deal with security or something else serious.

----------

6.1.5 was for the iPod touch as was 6.1.6

The final iOS build for the iPhone itself was 6.1.4
6.1.6 was for iPhones as well (just not ones that support iOS 7 as 7.0.6 was released for those), and came out just very recently.

I have Touch ID enabled and a password with 21 letters, I'm fine!

This needs to be fixed though for other though.

the last mainstream release for iOS 6 specifically for the iPhone 4, 4S and 5 (which majority of users here have) was indeed 6.1.4.

1. 6.1.5 and 6.1.6 were specifically for the iPod touch and 1 fix for the iphone 3GS.

What I'm saying I still stand behind. Once iOS 8 is announced you will not see anymore iOS 7.1.x updates unless its some super critical security hole.

Well, 6.1.6 only applied to one of the iPhone models directly as at the time the other models could support iOS 7 that was already released, so the same fix was made in 7.0.6 for those. Had iOS 7 still been in beta stages (after it was already announced but before it was released) that kind of a release would have been for all those phones that were still on iOS 6.

So, we are basically saying the same thing, that there can very well be a release of iOS 7 even once iOS 8 is announced if there's something there to justify it (some security and/or other major issue).

However, that aside, there are still at least a couple of months before iOS 8 would likely be announced, during which there can easily be one or even more iOS 7 updates too, especially given the potential issue that got the thread going.

Well this security hole that showed up is definitely going to guarantee at least one more build of iOS 7 before they stick a fork in it.

Even if this is patched, if someone has no passcode and their email set up on the phone, all a thief would have to do is have a password reset sent down anyway.

The last version of iOS 6 for most devices was iOS 6.1.3.

6.1.4 was iPhone 5 only (it fixed an audio issue).

6.1.5 was iPod touch (4th generation) only.

6.1.6 is for iPod touch (4th generation) and iPhone 3GS.

The 4 and 4S never got 6.1.4.

So that's one prediction I got right :D
While more or less at the same time questioning if there ever would be a 7.1.1 release. ;)

I wonder if the actual issue that started this thread has actually been addressed in 7.1.1.
