Apple releases Important iOS 17.0.1 security update

Apple provided a minor incremental iOS 17 upgrade for eligible iPhones just days after the formal iOS 17 release. This is a minor yet critical update for those who have recently updated to iOS-17. If there are major flaws with the current version, Apple has sent patch updates shortly after the official release in the past.

The first iOS-17 update arrived earlier than anticipated.iOS 17.0.1 is now available for all eligible iPhones, including the iPhone 15 series, iPhone 14 series, iPhone 13 series, iPhone 12 series, iPhone 11 series, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xs, iPhone XR, iPhone SE 2nd generation, and after.

Update: It seems for iPhone 15 models, the update available is iOS 17.0.2 (21A350).

Today Apple also released the iPadOS 17.0.1, iOS 16.7, iPadOS 16.7, watchOS 10.0.1, macOS 14 Sonoma RC2, macOS 13.6 Ventura, and macOS 12.7 Monterey. The iOS 17.0.1 update is available with build number 21A340 which is also the same for iPadOS 17.0.1. The iOS 16.7 update is available for iPhone 14 models.

This is a small update and only focused on critical bug fixes along with security and kernel improvements. In case I find any changes, I will update them below.

Note “This update provides important security fixes and is recommended for all users.”

The update is available to all eligible iPhones. You can check for the update by going to Settings > General > Software Update. If you were in beta and turned off the beta recently, then you will also receive the new iOS 17.0.1 update on your iPhone. This was a quick update from Apple as the official iOS-17 was released only three days back.
