iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 Released
Apple has Thursday afternoon released a software update for iPhone 5, bringing the current firmware version for iPhone 5 to iOS 6.1.4. Notably, the update doesn't appear to be for any other iOS devices. The update is showing up via Over the Air (OTA) and in iTunes for many iPhone 5 users... for those that it hasn't shown up for yet, it should show up soon.
iOS 6.1.4 appears to only update the audio profile for the iPhone's speakerphone. The update doesn’t appear to be significant for any other reasons.
For obvious reasons, jailbreakers should stay away from this update. The evad3rs have openly stated that they have no plans to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3
, and therefore a minor update like iOS 6.1.4 wouldn’t be significant enough to change their minds. It would be more time-worthy to save exploits for major future firmwares, like iOS 7. iOS hacker p0sixninja has also openly stated
that he would rather wait for iOS 7 to use his own exploits as well.
There is no way to downgrade the firmware of an iPhone 5 at this point in time, so if you're happily jailbroken, stay at the firmware you are at
. If not, feel free to update.
