Apple releases iOS 11.2.1 for HomeKit bug, others
Another week, another bug update from Apple. Even as we’ve struggled through the wrongs of Auto-Correct and notification hell, there was still this one stupid glitch that allowed users to delete Apple Pay Cash from iMessage, but not be able to re-install it.
Is it in this iOS 11.2.1 update? We’ll have to follow up to see, but until then, we do know that this update fixes a security vulnerability for HomeKit that could allow hackers to change an application’s state — perhaps smart security systems could be tricked to say things are safe when in fact they’re not.
The update is less than 70MB on most devices.
