Today Apple released iOS 7.1.2, a small update that includes several bug fixes, including enhanced “iBeacon connectivity and stability.” The update is available through Software Update on iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches running iOS 7.

Here are the changes in the update, as noted by Apple:

– Improves iBeacon connectivity and stability
– Fixes a bug with data transfer for some 3rd party accessories, including bar code scanners
– Corrects an issue with data protection class of Mail attachments

iOS 7.1.1 was released on April 22nd with improvements for Touch ID and more.

iOS 8, which is currently in its second developer beta revision, will be released to the public in the fall (presumable alongside new iPhone hardware). iBeacons are given a lot of prominence in iOS 8, as shortcuts to apps related to the device’s location are displayed right on the lockscreen.
