Apple launches iOS11.2.1, its eighth update

Apple today released iOS 11.2.1, the eighth official update of the iOS 11 operating system . iOS 11.2.1 comes a week and a half after the release of iOS 11.2, the second major update of the iOS 11 operating system, which brought Apple Pay Cash, a faster wireless load of 7.5W and a long list of bug fixes.

What's new?

The update of iOS 11.2.1 resolves errors and problems that have been discovered since the release of iOS 11.2.
According to Apple's release notes, the update re-enables remote access for shared users of the Home application . Apple disabled remote access for shared users by deploying a solution for a major HomeKit vulnerability last week.
The HomeKit error allowed unauthorized access to HomeKit accessories that included smart locks, and Apple fixed it after it was made public. To address the problem immediately, Apple had to disable remote access for shared users , which the company said it would re-enable through an iOS update this week.
After today's update, the HomeKit vulnerability is completely fixed and remote access for shared users has been restored.
We remember that iOS 11 is also the biggest update for the iPad, with a new Dock that introduces improvements in multitasking , a file application for better management of them, better support for Apple Pencil, an improved application changer and a Drag and drop function for the whole system.
