iOS 7.1.2 Includes Fixes For Email Encryption iBeacon Locksreen And Others
iOS 7.1.2 completely addresses the email attachment encryption issue which cropped up a while back. Even though a jailbreak tweak solution was available for the issue, the problem has been officially patched of now. In addition to the email encryption bug, connectivity for barcode scanners that connect to the iPad or the iPhone through iBeacon has also been improved. Data transfer for third party accessories which include barcode readers has been improved in the iOS 7.1.2. In addition, there was a lock screen vulnerability in the previous version as well. This allowed the passcode screen to be bypassed by simply giving a miss call to the device. This issue has been patched up by Apple as well in the iOS 7.1.2.
