Apple Releases iOS 7.0.6, Includes a Fix for SSL Connection Verification
Apple recently issued a minor update for its mobile operating system with iOS 7.0.6 fixing an issue with SSL connection verification. The new update is available by accessing the Software Update option in the native Settings application on a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. The security update can also be installed by connecting a device to a Mac or PC and downloading iOS 7.0.6 through iTunes.
The sixth update for iOS 7 arrives less than a month after Apple released its previous update, intended to address some network issues associated with the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C when being used in China.
As of right now, iOS 7.1 is still in beta testing, with its fourth pre-release build being supplied to developers just last week. The iOS 7.1 release is said to be more full-featured and is expected to contain numerous tweaks for the iOS 7 platform. It is being reported to arrive mid-March and include a major overhaul of Apple’s Mobile Device Management mass deployment system, while launching alongside a totally new “Volume Services” web client.
Also released today was iOS 6.1.6 for legacy devices. This update is available for the iPhone 3GS and fourth-generation iPod touch, both of which cannot run iOS 7.
