Is the following iPhone software program replace on its means prior to many had anticipated?
November 7 replace beneath. This submit was first revealed on November 5, 2023.
Though Apple has solely launched iOS 17.1, its newest iPhone software program, just lately, and expectations are already increase for iOS 17.2, anticipated in December, it now appears there could also be one other replace earlier than then.
In keeping with MacRumors, there's proof that iOS 17.1.1 may very well be with us in a matter of days.
The web site's analytics log has proven proof of this new software program, the publication claims, and it may very well be launched "throughout the subsequent week or two".
You may learn my verdict on whether or not to improve your iPhone to iOS 17.1 right here, however the assumed existence of iOS 17.1.1 suggests there are gadgets that want fixing, and iOS 17.2 is likely to be too lengthy to attend. So, what does this imply?

Smaller updates are nearly at all times geared toward squishing bugs and fixing issues fairly than introducing new options, so it seems to be like that is likely to be the case right here.
Some customers identified that their battery life was diminished after they'd put in iOS 17.1, although in my analysis this didn't appear very widespread. Even so, it's doable this may very well be one focus of the replace.
Should you've been one of many iPhone customers whose handset has turned itself off in a single day (the telltale clue is you must enter your passcode within the morning, fairly than simply utilizing Face ID, as an illustration), you then'll know that this was one thing that iOS 17.1 didn't profess to type. So, that may very well be coming within the subsequent software program.
There are different excellent points, reminiscent of a wi-fi charging concern for some BMW autos. Or perhaps it would carry ahead the wi-fi connectivity repair seen within the earliest beta for iOS 17.2, if Apple deems that is too pressing.
Simply as possible, it's one thing we all know nothing about, reminiscent of a safety concern. Apple by no means reveals there's been any safety drawback till it's been fastened, so it may very well be one thing as easy—and essential—as that.
What we all know for positive is the putative iOS 17.1.1 can't be a Speedy Safety Response replace, one thing Apple launched again in May 2023. Quickly after, it was defined that RSRs have been solely relevant to minor OS variations, which iOS 17.1 shouldn't be. However iOS 17.1.1 could be, because it has that additional dot in its model title. So, it's simply doable that iOS 17.1.1 may very well be adopted by an RSR which might be known as iOS 17.1.1 (a), as an illustration. I'm not saying that may occur, merely that iOS 17.1.1 can be an replace, not an RSR.
Apple likes to launch updates on a Tuesday, making November 7 or November 14 doable dates to verify your iPhone for an replace.
I'll be protecting it as quickly as it's launched, in fact.

November 7 replace. As you'll see above, the primary date I believed this replace would possibly land was right this moment, November 7. Subsequent Tuesday appears possible however I wouldn't hand over hope on this week simply but—Tuesday could also be Apple's favourite launch date for iOS updates, however different days have been used up to now. I'd strongly counsel checking tomorrow's information (or, even higher, verify again proper right here the place I'll let you understand).
There's been a improvement that signifies it's coming sooner fairly than later: based on 9to5Mac, an account on X, previously generally known as Twitter, known as @Fame_G_Monster has shared particulars in regards to the anticipated replace. I haven't linked to it as a result of their tweets are protected. Apparently, they're saying that the replace may have a construct variety of 21B91. The quantity itself doesn't inform us a lot, besides that the replace actually could also be on its means. And since this info is often revealed by this explicit X account simply earlier than the replace lands, it's additional indication that the replace is nearly upon us. In truth, it means that that is the week for iOS 17.1.1 to land fairly than subsequent week. So, tune in tomorrow for the most recent replace – both some additional particulars on this submit or a brand new one welcoming the replace itself.
Till then, we will solely guess that are Apple's priorities for iOS 17.1.1, as explored above.
