Apple on Tuesday released iOS 11.2.5, which is rolling out over the air right now. The latest update includes a number of bug fixes and enhancements, along with some new features designed to improve the overall experience.

One of the major improvements squashes a malicious link that would freeze the iPhone when clicked on. It’s unclear what else is new in Apple’s latest update, so we’ll be sure to update this post if anything significant pops up.

It doesn’t appear that iOS 11.2.5 includes iCloud Messages, which was delayed from iOS 11’s launch back in September of last year. Apple has yet to indicate when the feature will be available.

Here are the full release notes:

HomePod support

– Setup and automatically transfer your Apple ID, Apple Music, Siri and Wi-Fi settings to HomePod.

Siri News

– Siri can now read the news, just ask, “Hey Siri, play the news”. You can also ask for specific news categories including Sports, Business or Music.

Other improvements and fixes

– Addresses an issue that could cause the Phone app to display incomplete information in the call list – Fixes an issue that caused Mail notifications from some Exchange accounts to disappear from the Lock screen when unlocking iPhone X with Face ID – Addresses an issue that could cause Messages conversations to temporarily be listed out of order – Fixes an issue in CarPlay where Now Playing controls become unresponsive after multiple track changes – Adds ability for VoiceOver to announce playback destinations and AirPod battery level
