Apple appears to be internally testing an iOS 17.1.1 update for the iPhone, based on evidence of the software in our website’s analytics logs this week.
iOS 17.1.1 will almost certainly be focused on bug fixes, but it’s unclear exactly which issues the update will address. The update could include the same fix for Wi-Fi connectivity issues that Apple rolled out in the first iOS 17.2 beta, and it could resolve an issue where some iPhones temporarily shut off overnight for users still experiencing that. Apple also promised to fix a BMW wireless charging issue affecting the iPhone 15 lineup in an update later this year, but it remains to be seen if that fix will be included in iOS 17.1.1.
It’s unclear when iOS 17.1.1 will be released to the public, but our best guess is that the update will be available within the next week or two.
iOS 17.2 remains in beta testing, and is expected to be released in December, so iOS 17.1.1 will be a stopgap update. iOS 17.2 includes many new features and changes, including the promised Journal app, the ability for Apple Music subscribers to collaborate on playlists, a Translate option for the Action button on iPhone 15 Pro models, an iMessage Contact Key Verification security option, additional Weather and Clock widgets, and more.Related Roundups: iOS 17, iPadOS 17Related Forums: iOS 17, iPadOS 17
