|Apple Rolls Out iOS 10.3.1 Update with Bug Fixes and Security Improvements|
Apple has started rolling out the latest iOS 10.3.1 update to its iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, exactly a week after it released the iOS 10.3 system update.
The latest iOS update follows Apple's release of the iOS 10.3.2 beta 1 for developers, which reportedly some readers pointed out before to have skipped 10.3.1 and went straight to 10.3.2.
As the first patch to iOS 10.3, the release notes for this particular update are light. It only notes bug fixes and security improvements, including a Wi-Fi security fix that prevents an attacker within range to execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip.

According to Apple, the update addresses a stack buffer overflow through improved input validation.
Another fix is with regards to the lack of support for the older 32-bit devices that are still compatible with iOS 10. With the latest 10.3.1 update, devices such as the iPhone 5 and later, iPad (4th generation) and later, as well as the iPod touch and later versions will be able to receive over the air update again without having to use iTunes.
