    iOS 7.1.2 has caused some problems for some iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. Here's how you can avoid ruining your day
    Last week Apple released iOS 7.1.2, a maintenance update to iOS with some iBeacon, data transfer and Mail improvements. Most iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owners have been able to update with no issues. Some, however, have run into big problems with the update *enough to brick their device. If you haven't upgraded yet, follow these instructions before you do to help avoid problems.

    (laughing)....but in case you're serious, there is no rule that states that you are "supposed to create a backup before updating", however, it is highly recommended that you do because updates don't always go seamlessly as planned...

    LOL! No I wasn't serious. I updated a week ago ota and haven't had any problems. I think my battery is better on my iPhone 5.

    I never backup my iPhone before an update and there was no change in my approach this time(7.1.2) as well.
    Be it a major/minor upgrade, I have been pretty lucky however once iOS 8 is released, I might fire a full back of my device, format it and then download/install iOS 8(like installing OS on a bare metal device)
