Apple will likely release iOS 17.1.2 this week, based on mounting evidence of the software in our website's analytics logs in recent days.


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, so perhaps iOS 17.1.2 will include the same fix for Wi-Fi connectivity issues that Apple already included in the iOS 17.2 beta. Some users have also experienced minor bugs related to push notifications, HomeKit, and more.

iOS 16.1.2 was released during the week after U.S. Thanksgiving last year, so there is precedent for a bug-fix update being released this week.

iOS 17.1.2 would be the second bug-fix update for the iPhone this month after iOS 17.1.1, which fixed a BMW wireless charging issue affecting the iPhone 15 lineup, and an issue preventing the Weather app widget from showing a snow icon.

Following iOS 17.1.2, Apple is expected to release iOS 17.2, which has been in beta testing for around a month now. The update includes many new features and changes, including Apple's 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.

I'd like to see that wi-fi connection fix in 17.1.2. I experience frequent loss of data when on wi-fi. I have to switch to cellular data to have it start working again. Once I do, I can toggle wi-fi back on and it will work. However, this cycle of events is annoying af.
I have the same issue, I thought it was hardware but I’m glad to see it is not just me and is mostly related to software.

Out of 100 people who will really be journaling? Maybe 10.
Actually seems like it’s not even a proper journaling app. Just a collection of photos and location data smacked together with a text box to put in a thought. Any developer could do better. The fact that the entire iPhone isn’t utilised to contain massive amounts of interesting data to look back on is absolutely beyond me. It’s like, who thinks of these ideas, apples bare bones as usual, cut it back till there is nothing left but a pure idea, when it comes to apps that’s not always what users want!! I’m surprised they aren’t charging for it to be honest with Tim in charge!

Yep, have the same issue! When I use TikTok 🫣 for more than 15 mins is stops loading, WiFi drops and I have no internet for 5 mins! I have a 2 band WiFi router so I move over to 5G and it works again. Infuriating…

I hope the update will fix the bug where the Watch does not necessarily play the local downloaded episode even if you are selecting from the Downloaded section on the Podcast app. Almost always the Podcast app on the Watch will not play its own local episode and instead will play the iPhone's downloaded one. The problem is when you go on a run and started the run and podcast while the phone is remotely connected, it will lose connection in about 1 block and suddenly the podcast stops playing. A very stupid bug....

Has anyone been having issues with GPS drifting by 100 yards or so? Happening on both my wife's phone and mine in all GPS apps. Started maybe a month ago for both of us (dont remember if it was after a particular update) and has made navigation unusable. Constantly redirecting as it thinks im on some nearby side road. Was hoping to see that its a known bug that will be fixed but outside of a few reddit threads, not seeing much on dedicated apple related forums.
