iOS 17.4.1 coming soon for iPhone with bug fixes

Apple is preparing to release iOS 17.4.1 soon with build number 21E235. There's no word on what's new in iOS 17.4.1, but the update will focus on bug fixes and performance improvements rather than new features.

The information was published on social networks by a private account with a long track record. The account has previously shared details about upcoming iOS software updates on multiple occasions. 9to5Mac also noticed growing signs of iOS 17.4.1 in our analytics data, as did our friends at MacRumors.

iOS 17.4 was released on March 5 with a number of new features, including support for alternative app stores in the European Union. The update also included transcripts in Apple Podcasts, improvements to stolen device protection and Siri, new emoji, and more.

What about iOS 17.5?

Besides iOS 17.4.1, we also expect Apple to start beta testing of iOS 17.5 sooner or later. Most notably, Apple recently announced that it plans to make additional changes for iPhone users in the EU as part of its efforts to comply with the Digital Markets Act.

The big change is that developers will be able to offer their apps for download directly from their website. Apple says the feature will arrive sometime this spring, suggesting it will be included in iOS 17.5.
