Apple has just released a new iOS update out of the blue. Here’s how you can download iOS 11.2.1 on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. As it builds suggests, iOS 11.2.1 doesn’t bring anything new to the table. It is a minor update and fixes a remote access bug in the stock Home app.
This bug resulted in disabled access to shared users of the app. Although this looks like a non-issue at the very outset, it could result in someone gaining unauthorized access to your Homekit devices.
Once you update, this issue will no longer persist and your Homekit devices will once again become completely secure. If you want to upgrade to this version, you can do so via the OTA. Just go to Settings > General > Software Update and download this version.
