Apple released an iOS update of 10.3.2 from iOS 10.3, which saw a lack of support from the 32-bit devices. Some of the users even pointed out that Apple has skipped iOS 10.3.1 and directly jumped to iOS 10.3.2. In the latest update released by Apple today, it started rolling out iOS 10.3.1 for iPads and iPhones, which brought back all the necessary support for the 32-bit devices. Most importantly, this update will be available on Apple iPhone 5 and 5C as well!

According to Forbes, this was a significant move by Apple and was welcomed by all the users, and moreover, the update was a much-required one. The release notes for this update are extremely light where bug fixes and improvement in the security features was the salient features. The release notes did not specify that what is fixed that was not addressed in the Apple iOS 10.3 update that was released only a week before.

According to some more detailed notes on the security page of Apple, 10.3.1 addresses an overflow of the buffer which could have been exploited for the execution of code on the iPhone or the Wi-Fi chip of the tablet. The bug is credited to the "Project Zero" of Google, which discloses the bugs to the public ninety days after telling the companies about them for encouraging faster patches of security, revealed 9 To 5 Mac.

Apple had released a beta of iOS 10.3.2 in the last week very shortly after the release of 10.3. It is very likely that the Apple iOS 10.3 will go through some additional beta builds and then be released to the public in a short span of time. It is expected that nothing much will change since the public release of iOS 11 in supposed to be in June this year which is only a couple of moths away!
