If you’ve been having trouble syncing Microsoft Exchange accounts on your iPhone, the latest iOS update is bringing you good news.
Apple is rolling out iOS 11.4.1 for iPhones and iPads everywhere. There isn’t anything in the way of new features, instead delivering on some bug fixes and stability improvements. On the iPhone X, it’s a relatively small file at just 252.2 MB.
iOS 11.4.1 arrives 41 days after Apple released iOS 11.4 to all users. That update brought Messages in the Cloud, after a long delay and stereo pairing for the HomePod. By contrast, today’s update has just two bullet points in the official notes, but improved syncing of Exchange accounts is a highlight.
Here’s how to get the update right now:
Open Settings on your iOS device.
Tap on General and then Software Update.
iOS 11.4.1 should appear, and you can click “Download and Install” to get the update.
iOS will prompt you when the update is ready to install.
Besides the improvements to Exchange syncing, Apple notes that the update fixes an issue of not being able to locate AirPods in Find My iPhone. As with most incremental updates, you can expect that other bugs have been squashed and that the overall stability of iOS has improved.
In addition to releasing iOS 11.4.1, Apple is also pushing out watchOS 4.3.2 for the Apple Watch and tvOS 11.4.1 for the Apple TV. Like the iOS update, they both cite fixing bugs and improving stability. The HomePod also gets a “stability” update.
The next big update, iOS 12, is slated to arrive in the fall.
