Apple Pushes Out iOS 7.0.5 For Select iPhones in Few Regions

Written By:

Apple is pushing out a brand new update for its users on iOS - iOS 7.0.5 - which is meant to arrive on devices such as iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. And while that sounds pretty exciting, there's a catch - Apparently, the update is meant only for select iPhones in few regions.

The Cupertino-based company released the latest update iOS 7.0.5 for the iPhone. The update comes with a minor maintenance update that looks to correct network provisioning in China for select iPhone 5s and 5c models that are retailed in China, Europe and Asia Pacific.

However, if anyone who received the update, arriving as Build 11B601, in these regions is looking to get major changes via it, the user is set for major disappointment since the update is designed to correct network provisioning within the country.

The update also comes more than two months after the release of iOS 7.0.4, which introduced additional bug fixes, alongside a repair for an issue that caused FaceTime calls to fail for some users.

However, for all the jailbreak fans, on a similar note, if anybody is thinking about getting the iOS 7.0.5 update on their already jailbroken devices, it's not a good idea since the process hasn't been finalized as of now and users are instead advised to avoid iOS 7.0.5 for now.

As Gotta Be Mobile perfectly puts it, "Jailbreak developer MuscleNerd is telling folks to wait on updating to iOS 7.0.5 for the time being."

"This doesn't necessarily mean that Apple has patched up the exploit used to gain jailbreak access, so MuscleNerd's words are merely just a tale of caution while the Evad3rs dev team comb through the change logs to see if the exploit has been patched."

While we don't know when the update will reach the global audience, rumors say that the update won't arrive until March.
