iOS 11.2.5

Version iOS 11.2.5 was released just two weeks after iOS 11.2.2 was released with a patch for the Specter vulnerability. As with the beta versions, the update is aimed at fixing bugs and improving system performance. It fixed a bug in the Messages application, and added support for HomePod and news Siri – a function that allows the virtual assistant to read the current news aloud.

Below is the complete postscript to the update:
