iOS 10.1.1 Release Notes / Changelog And Security Content
Here are iOS 10.1.1 release notes (also known as changelog), as well as security content, as highlighted by Apple for compatible, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
Apple has today made iOS 10.1.1 available to download, with owners of iPads and iPhone able to take advantage of the update for free. The new update comes only less than a week after iOS 10.1 was made available to public, and while that update brought with it new user-facing features, this one has far less to get the pulse racing as according to the official release notes from Apple, iOS 10.1.1 includes: “This update fixes bugs including an issue where Health data could not be viewed for some users.”
Those who downloaded iOS 10.1 and owned an iPhone 7 Plus will no doubt have already taken advantage of the new Portrait mode that the update brought to the Camera app, and updates do generally bring something new that users can point to once an update has completed.
With iOS 10.1.1, however, it would appear that the only change of any significance was to fix a bug that prevented some users from accessing their Health data. If you were one of those who experienced the issue, then rest easy in the knowledge that this update has your back.
As far as security content for iOS 10.1.1 goes, there doesn’t even appear to have been any security patches that found their way into this release, with Apple itself confirming that the iOS 10.1.1 security level is the same as that of iOS 10.1. Apple doesn’t always disclose just which security holes have been plugged and which haven’t for security reasons, but it would appear that security was not one of the reasons Apple released iOS 10.1.1 today.
Weighing in at just a few megabytes, we’re not sure what else Apple could have managed to squeeze into the update beyond the Health fix anyway.
