Apple Releases iOS 11.2.1 Update With HomeKit Remote Access for Shared Users Fix

Apple today released iOS 11.2.1, the eighth official update to the iOS 11 operating system. iOS 11.2.1 comes a week and a half after the release of iOS 11.2, the second major update to the iOS 11 operating system, which brought Apple Pay Cash, faster 7.5W wireless charging, and a long list of bug fixes.

The iOS 11.2.1 update can be downloaded for free on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the update, go to Settings –> General –> Software Update.

The iOS 11.2.1 update addresses bugs and issues that have been discovered since the release of iOS 11.2.

According to Apple’s release notes, the update addresses an issue that could disable remote access to shared users of the Home app. Apple broke remote access for shared users when implementing a fix for a major HomeKit vulnerability.

The HomeKit bug allowed unauthorized access to HomeKit accessories that included smart locks, and it was fixed server-side by Apple last week. To address the issue immediately, Apple had to disable remote access for shared users, which Apple said it would re-enable through an iOS update this week.

Following today’s update, the HomeKit vulnerability is fully patched and remote access for shared users has been reinstated.
