Apple releases enigmatic "updated" version of iOS 10.1.1

Apple has today released a new version of iOS 10.1.1. Details are scant—or rather, nonexistent—as of the time of this writing. There is no new information in the changelog for the updated build. The new build number is 14B150.

Luckily, various tech sites have have been kind enough to inform their readers how to update to the “new” version of iOS 10.1.1 (spoiler alert: OTA won’t work). You’ll have to use iTunes or use the IPSW files (links can be found here).

My own iTunes application has this to say:

So, my iPhone is running iOS 10.1.1, and a newer version of the iPhone software is available, also named 10.1.1. That makes total sense, Apple! :D

Apple has been uncharacteristically silent about this update; ergo, I’m not about to update to a version of iOS the purpose of which can currently only be speculated about.

I’ll update this post if Apple decides a little more transparency with regards to this iOS update is in order.
