Apple releases iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5


Apple has just released iOS 6.1.4. The update seems to be available only for iPhone 5.

According to the release notes, the minor update brings an updated audio profile for speakerphone.

Here’s the release notes:

  • Updated audio profile for speakerphone.

It goes without saying, but jailbreakers should avoid upgrading your iOS device to iOS 6.1.4.

The release comes as a surprise as Apple hasn’t released a beta version after releasing iOS 6.1.3 back in March.

If you don’t care about jailbreaking then you should be able to download it via OTA (Go to Settings -> General -> Software Update).


You can also download iOS 6.1.4 firmware file (ipsw) using the direct download links from here.

We’ll let you know if we find anything interesting.

        It seems to me that they came up with a software update that improves the iPhone 5 speakers performance. I don’t work for apple, I don’t have much in common with them, but it seems pretty easy to understand for me. The other iPhones have different hardware so this update will not work for them. … This is just my uneducated opinion about the matter :)) I could be wrong.

    Just a hint of leaving iPhone 4 and 4S owners in the dust….

    The new update kills your battery very fast, and rejects 3rd-party charging cables. STAY AWAY !!

    Installed the new update. NO speaker phone now, No Bluetooth, can’t sink to On Star in my vehicle, NO music, NO sounds when text, email or alerts come through….where do I go for help? Wis I hadn’t done the speaker “upgrade”.
    Can I re-set my phone to pre- iOS 6.1.4?
