Apple Releases iOS 11.4.1 with Improvements to Find my AirPods; HomePod Also Gets an Update

iPhone X

Apple today released iOS 11.4.1, a minor bugfix release aimed at squashing some lingering bugs in the OS. The official change-log from Apple also points to improvements in the reliability of Find My AirPods and syncing of mail, contacts, and notes with Exchange accounts.

The latest point update of iOS comes almost a month after Apple had released iOS 11.4 with some major audio focused improvements. The OTA update is already rolling out to all compatible iPhones and iPads, and it can be downloaded by going to Settings -> General -> Software Update.

Since there’s only a couple of months left for iOS 12 to drop, it is possible that iOS 11.4.1 is the last release from Apple for iOS 11 as the company switches its focus on finalising iOS 12 for release.

Alongside iPhones and iPads, Apple also released an update to bump the HomePod software version to 11.4.1. The official change-log from Apple points to the release including “general improvements for stability and quality.” If you own a HomePod, it will automatically update itself to the latest software release without any user intervention. However, if you want the update right away, you can use the Home app on your iPhone to do so.
