The last update for Apple's mobile operating system which is iOS 6.1.3 was released back at the end of March. As far as features and changes go, iOS 6.1.3 didn't really have anything much to offer, although it did provide improvements to Maps and fixed a major security flaw. Today, Apple just released iOS 6.1.4 and again, it is a very minor release and a fairly strange one at that.
That's right folks, iOS 6.1.4 is now available for download and what made this release an odd one is that it is only available for the iPhone 5. As for the change log, iOS 6.1.3 doesn't offer much as it contains only one entry. This minor firmware update provides an updated audio profile for speakerphone and it's unclear if it includes any performance improvements or bug fixes.
The iOS 6.1.4 change log goes like this:
- Updated audio profile for speakerphone.
This is a pretty surprising release considering that Apple hasn't released any beta version after iOS 6.1.3. And considering how unexciting the change log is, one has to wonder if this one feature for the speakerphone audio profile warrants a firmware release, even if it's a minor one.
Needless to say, jailbreakers should avoid iOS 6.1.4 as it will surely kill the jailbreak. If you are not jailbroken, you can now download iOS 6.1.4 via OTA update. Just navigate to Settings > General > Software Update. Alternatively, you may download the iOS 6.1.4 IPSW file using the links below
