The Easiest Way to Install iOS 11.2.1

Jason Kirk,

What is the most important you need to know about the latest iOS version 11.2.1: it restores a remote access for HomeKit shared users. The reason why Apple decided to disable it was a small vulnerability, which allowed unauthorized parties to have an access to various HomeKit accessories. Let’s not forget to mention the application that came with the same operating system – Apple Pay Cash. This smart and simple app allows you to send/receive money via your Apple devices.
