Apple today announced iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 both CDMA and GSM. iOS 6.1.4 known as Build 10B329 on Apple’s latest version code is released worldwide and available for download via iTunes or direct over wifi for Over-The-Air (OTA Update)
As per technical reviews, iOS 6.1.4 is a minor update and does not contain any updates on GUI (Graphical User Interface) so don’t expect your iPhone to be a super smart awesome iPhone once again. Also, this happened just before a month before launching iPhone 5s or iPhone 6 (Upcoming iPhone version). So obvious reason is Apple will not allow users to test iOS 7 features yet to keep their boat floating.
What is new on iOS 6.1.4?
- Audio Profile Updated for Speaker Phone
- Over The Air (WiFi) update on iPhone is only 11.5 MB
- Apple haven’t announced any other feature than Audio Profile update
- Only available for iPhone 5 for both GSM and CDMA models.
This is not a jailbreak supported version at the moment nor previous firmware 6.1.3 was able to jailbreak. So those who are willing to continue their 6.1.2 or earlier jailbreak legacy, Should strictly avoid any update on this firmware. Guys! There isn’t much troubles but I’ve seen a person here who go it replaced for speaker issue. needless to say, he is lucky enough to get replacement before 2 days of latest iOS release.
In the meantime,if you are not willing to jailbreak or already have iOS 6.1.3 on iPhone 5 should update to 6.1.4 without any second thought, as if jailbreak in future is available, then will be available for both.
