MacRumors Eric Slivka reports:
MacRumors has now learned that Apple is indeed nearing a public release of iOS 7.1.2 and has begun seeding carrier partners with a version of it, termed build 11D257.
According to sources, the build of iOS 7.1.2 does indeed address the email attachment encryption issue, as well as a bug in downloading emails. Also included in the update is a fix for a lock screen vulnerability that could allow access to “limited apps”. While we can’t say for certain, Apple may be referring to the ”missed call” lock screen bug publicized earlier this month.
There’s no word on when iOS 7.1.2 will be released, but Apple has apparently asked carriers to sign off on the update by Friday, June 27, suggesting that a public release could come the following week. Obviously, jailbreakers will want to stay away.
