Apple is preparing an update to its iOS 7 mobile operating system that will fix issues with Mail attachment encryption, iBeacon connectivity, and security problems that exist in the current version, reports MacRumors. There is also speculation that the new version could make it easier for users to disconnect their phone numbers from iMessage, but there’s no indication that this will be in the 7.1.2 update.

The update is also said to include a possible fix for a glitch that allows access to certain apps from the lockscreen when a passcode is set as we showed you earlier this month.

iOS 7.1 was released earlier this year on March 10, 2014, while iOS 7.1.1 was released on April 22, 2014.

The build is reportedly in the hands of carriers for approval now, and could be released to the public by June 27th.
