Apple Releases the Slightest of iOS Updates With iOS 6.1.4

With WWDC ready to get underway in the near future, a lot of our iOS attention has been focused on the development of iOS 7 – what’s changing, what’s staying the same, and when will we finally be able to get our hands on it? Still, it looks like iOS 6 has some life in it yet, and today Apple keeps that ball rolling with the release of iOS 6.1.4.

The 6.1.4 update is a mere 11.5MB in size, which should clue you in that this one is seriously minor. The only change we’re aware of is an updated audio profile for speakerphone operation; what’s more, this update is only applicable to the iPhone 5.

After hearing a number of complaints about bugs present after the installation of iOS 6.1.3 we were hoping to learn that some fixes might be arriving with Apple’s follow-up release. Now, it’s entirely possible that Apple has tweaked some other phone settings that haven’t yet been disclosed, so there’s a chance that you very well might notice some smoother operation, but for now the party line is that 6.1.4 is only about that speakerphone adjustment.
