iOS 7 updates seem to be moving along quicker compared to iOS 6 updates last year, this is because at this time last year we had 7 updates, compared to 8 so far for iOS 7. However, looking at the frequency of these releases we wonder if we can build up a picture as to what Apple will do next.
In all Apple released 7 updates to iOS 6 for the iPhone 5 and iPad, although a couple of minor updates were released for the iPod touch and iPhone 3GS after iOS 8 was released.
iOS 7.1.2 could very well be the final update for the iPhone 5, 5S and iPad Air and mini ahead of iOS 8, as the last iOS 6 update for last years newest iPhone and iPad was 6.1.4 in May.
We had expected to see iOS 7.1.2 released to the public by now because if we were to look last year there was an update in March, then May, and so the iOS 7.1.2 release date should be in June.
iOS users have already vented their frustration because of the long wait, but there is still just under a week left in this month and so Apple could surprise us. Who knows, maybe we could see iOS 7.1.2 released today to take some of the focus away from Google I/O 2014, which is set to begin in just over 3 hours time.
A day does not go by that we do not click the update button to see if iOS 7.1.2 has been released, just like we have a couple of times today. Do you think iOS 7.1.2 will be the final update for this version before iOS 8 is released possibly in September?
