Apple has today released iOS 17.3.1, iPadOS 17.3.1, macOS Sonoma 14.3.1, and watchOS 10.3.1 to the public.
The release notes for iOS 17.3.1, iPadOS 17.3.1, and macOS Sonoma 14.3.1 mention a fix for a bug that could cause text to unexpectedly duplicate or overlap while typing, while the release notes for watchOS 10.3.1 simply state that it includes "Improvements and bug fixes."
As these updates appear to have been released to address a small set of specific issues, our expectation is that they do not contain any accessibility changes for blind and low vision users; however, if you notice any changes, improvements or regressions in your own use of these releases, please post a comment below with your findings.
