Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has reportedly recognized a bug in its calendar due to which the list of holidays showing is wrong, in some countries, according to a report from Times Of India. The problem caught the eyes after the launch of iOS 7.1.2 update for the mobile devices. One of the Apple users told that the iPad shows the list of holidays relevant to Mexico, Hong Kong and Canada instead of Lithuania, his home place. Also, the country based list of holidays alters over time.
Apple vows to fix the issue
The user came across the problem after setting his native country as Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. There is no issue for the users in UK, US and Russia as it gives the correct list of the holidays. The user wrote an email to the Apple telling them the issue he is facing and the company accepted and as assured to rectify the problem as soon as possible. There is no word over the date of the next update release.
Last week, Apple launched the iOS 7.1.2 update for the iDevices, but it seems like the update is already infected by the app bugs. There was no alteration done to the user interface design and the background because the whole agenda behind launching the update was to contain the bugs and other security issues rather than overhauling display and UI features.
iOS 7.1.2 update
The Cupertino, California-based company has released an update for the iPhone 4 and above, iPod Touch 5th generation and above and iPad 2 and above. Upon downloading, the iOS 7.1.2 user will get device’s certificate trust policy updated automatically. The updated iOS will bolster the iBeacon connectivity and solve bug issues by on involving data transfer from third party accessories.
Apple has attempted to make improvements by offering additional client-side verification of the data received from activation servers, which will protect the phones from the hackers.
The minor update has been eclipsed by the Apple’s news on the upcoming iPhone 6 and iOS8, the latter of which was announced at the WWDC 2014 while former still remains a mystery.
The iOS 7.1.2 update comes less than four months after the iOS 7.1 update was released in March of this year.
