Yes, you’ve read that headline right. Apple just released another version of iOS 12. This is the fourth release of an iOS 12 version since Apple first released iOS 12 back in September. It is an urgent release for all iOS compatible devices which are iPhone 5s or later, iPad mini 2?or later, 6th generation iPod touch or later. Compatible devices should be automatically prompted to upgrade. This upgrade is assumingely designed to fix problems with FaceTime and emojis. The size of 12.1.4 is 500MB which is surprising huge for a big fix. It had been reported by numerous sources that this fix does fix certain problems but also introduces new problems as well.
In all of the years of Apple iOS, never have I’ve seen so many version of iOS introduced in a such a short amount of time. But never had iOS had so many features either. Windows for instance gets updated with patches at least once every month because features and attacks it gets. I think it is safe to assume that the bigger iOS gets and the more features get added to it, the more security updates it will need going forward.
