    Heard some folks on the Internet praising Apple for releasing a whopping six incremental updates to 7.0.

    I, however, am going to refrain from praising them too much, since the USA was left out in the dark for 7.0.5.

    If they were too busy worrying about China, at least they could've tossed in tiny bit of love for the USA as well, just to keep everyone on the same version number. It's not like 7.0.x can boast a severe shortage of bugs.

    Maybe 7.1 will make up for their transgressions.

    Who cares about 7.1? I'm all for iOS 8.

    You felt left out because of 7.0.5?!

    I updated the phone today. I'm just not that stoked about incremental updates. When we get to 7.1 and 7.2, that is what really matters. However, saying that I will be sure to apply any security updates because a SSL vulnerability is pretty serious.

    Just wondering. Does anyone know ANYone who was actually hacked using a SSL vulnerability? I understand the need to close holes in security but I've never heard of anyone getting their iPhone hacked.

    I certainly don't know of any cases of iPhone hacking.

    Nor have I heard stories of issues with "network provisioning for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models sold in China."

    What I am familiar with, on a first-hand basis and through the stories of others, is stock apps like Safari crashing. I've been a victim of these crashes on multiple occasions.

    I haven't heard of one either. But if the NSA took advantage of it, you'd never know. :)

    And who would be naive enough to think they actually don't anyway?

    I'm not sure if that information is available, but no one was really aware of it until now. It might be difficult to prove exactly how it happened to someone. The front door has been open for a year. No one may have waltzed in and robbed the place in that year, but it was still a major security risk. It's even more so now that it's advertised in the newspaper, all the hackers have gotten an email about it and it's written in the sky that the door is open in case they want an easy score.

    It took me five minutes to update my iPad mini. The OTA update was 15 megabytes. I'd rather not worry about it. If you're jailbroken and don't want to do the full update and rejailbreak, just install the patch in Cydia.

    Yeah. I can understand that. Too late for me though. I did the update and re-jailbroke my phone. Tedious.
    I may just do the patch for my jailbroken iPad 2 though. Thanks for your insightful insight Europa :)

    I wish I had just done the patch instead as well, but it wasn't available this morning. I decided to restore to factory settings and set up the phone and all the jailbreak tweaks from scratch. It took a couple hours. I did this in hopes that it would help my Safari crashes. I had a Safari crash about an hour later.

    Keep in mind that the patch doesn't work in safe mode or non-substrate mode (just in case anyone cares about that).

    Also, and these are early reports and could mean nothing, people are beginning to report fewer or no stock app crashes after the actual install of 7.0.6.

    You're saying you still had a safari crash? I'm wondering what's causing my settings app to crash lol.

    I hardly have any app crashes anymore, even when I was on 7.0.4. Maybe the jailbreak made things more stable. :D
