Apple releases iOS 7.0.5 to tackle network provisioning error

iOS 7.0.5 China

Apple is reportedly pushing a new update, iOS 7.0.5, that will fix persistent software issues with the iPhone 5s and 5c being sold in China. There have been reports of problems around network provisioning for units of the iPhone 5s and 5c being sold in China and the update is expected to be a fix for that. The popular phones launched on the biggest operator in China, China Mobile, to much success and the numbers reflected in Apple’s sales figures. Apple managed to push a record 51 million units of the iPhone in Q1 2014. 

The iPhone 5s and 5c brought with them a major change to the interface and underlying capabilities via iOS 7. While the exact nature of the error is unknown, it is possible that the tweaks made to iOS 7 are partly responsible for the network provisioning error. The iOS 7.0.5 update weighs in at 35.4 megabytes and is available only for non-US models of the iPhone 5c and 5s. The update is available to all non-US devices including and is not restricted to devices in China.
