  • These special features will be available in Apple's latest updates

9to5Mac had reported zero-day HomeKit vulnerability earlier this month, which allowed unauthorised access to smart home accessories. The latest software update addresses the issue that was unearthed since the release of iOS 11.2. Apple then made some changes server-side that temporarily patched the vulnerability while a proper fix was expected to arrive at a later date.

When using third-party apps on the iPhone and iPad, some bugs related to reboot have been fixed by Apple in their latest update. Still it is best to keep the iOS updated with the latest software for security reasons.

The HomeKit vulnerability appears to be the only major issue iOS 11.2.1 resolves, other than the regular dosage of bug fixes. The update is available for iPhone 5s and later, iPad Air and later and iPod touch 6th generation.

Apple iPhone, iPad users can go to Settings app General Software Update and check for the update. After installing the latest iOS update, the device displays the "Face ID is not available" prompt upon accessing the face unlock feature. Users will need a live internet connection to download and install the update, which is around 69.1 MB in size on iOS.

Apple has rolled out iOS 11.2.1.

But by rushing out the new update, it just exposed more problems and led to a security glitch that potentially left users vulnerable to hacking in their homes. Apple has now reportedly fixed the issue with iOS 11.2.1, although the fix has not been mentioned it explicitly in its update log. Apple iOS users who have not installed updates from the last few pushed out by the company might find the size of this current update to be slightly larger.
