iOS 17.3.1 Is Released With A Patch For Additional Problems Including Duplicate And Overlapping Text
iOS 17.3.1, a point release upgrade for iOS 17.3, was made available by Apple on Thursday. The update contains bug fixes, one of which addresses the situation where “text may unexpectedly duplicate or overlap while typing,” according to the release notes. Earlier this week, Macworld observed the upgrade being tested.
“This update has no published CVE entries,” which indicates that it does not include security fixes for vulnerabilities reported in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database, according to the Apple security releases website. Following a report earlier this week indicating that Apple was working on the upgrade, iOS 17.3.1 was released.
Additionally, Apple is developing iOS 17.4, which will include significant updates to the App Store for users in the European Union in addition to new emoji and other features. We anticipate receiving the update in late February or early March. Apple also published watchOS 10.3.1 with unidentified “improvements and bug fixes” and macOS Sonoma 14.3.1 with the same update.
