Leave it to Apple to allow you to go through some news of the iOS 7.1 update we’re expecting in the next couple of days, for them to officially release it just hours later. iOS 7.1 has been in the works for a couple of months now, and after five beta releases, we were expecting a Gold Master Candidate this week, and it turns out that Apple has preferred to make it official.
iOS 7.1 is now available for download through iTunes or the Software Update feature of your device. The changes are considered minor by many, but given the buggy nature of iOS 7, many of these changes are very important. These changes include better TouchID fingerprint recognition, bug fixes to the home screen crash that many were affected by, improved performance for the old iPhone 4, new UI refinements, iCloud Keychain support for more countries, automatic HDR in photos returns with this update, we get more Accessibility features, new Calendar settings, and support for Apple’s new CarPlay feature.
The update is compatible with the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display, iPad mini, iPad (third and fourth generations), iPad 2, and iPod touch (fifth generation). Just make sure you rush to update as soon as you can, as those servers will be jammed very soon.
