ios7 beta5There have been several issues with regards to iOS 7 that needs fixing. For starters there is the issue with iMessage that doesn’t seem to be able to remove users’ phone numbers from Apple’s servers, thus causing text messages to not deliver when the user switches to a different platform like Android. Apple promised it would be fixed in a future update. There is also an issue with the Mail app where email attachments were found to be not encrypted properly.

The good news is that if this sounds pretty frustrating to you, you might be in luck because according to a report from MacRumors, Apple is expected to issue an update to iOS 7 in the form of iOS 7.1.2 in the coming weeks. The update is expected to address the issues mentioned above, as well as some other issues that might have gone unnoticed.

Other potential fixes includes iBeacon connectivity and some other security problems. The update to iOS 7.1.2 is also said to fix a glitch in the lock screen where certain apps could be accessed, even if there is a passcode that has been set. Supposedly the update is now pending carrier approval and could be released by the 27th of June.

So if you’re particularly bothered by these glitches and bugs, then you might want to keep your eye out for next week which is when the update is expected to be released.
