For those iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users who were facing software related issues on their device running iOS 7.1, Apple Inc has finally released the iOS 7.1.1.
The new iteration of the Cupertino company’s iOS 7 mobile operating system comes with some bug fixes and performance improvements, but expecting something major from this particular update will be a bit too much.
The company has not listed all the changes the new update brings, but key features like improvements to Touch ID on the iPhone 5S have not gone unnoticed.
With the iOS 7.1.1, Apple also fixes the bug affecting the keyboard responsiveness and VoiceOver when using a Bluetooth keyboard.
The iOS 7.1.1 is available both by plugging your iOS device into your computer and downloading the update through iTunes or over the air, by visiting Settings > General > Software Update.
Talking about the iOS 7.1.1 on its website, Apple states: “This update contains improvements, bug fixes and security updates, including:
Further improvements to Touch ID fingerprint recognition
Fixes a bug that could impact keyboard responsiveness
Fixes an issue when using Bluetooth keyboards with VoiceOver enabled”
With only six weeks remaining for Apple’s next World Wide Developers Conference where the company is expected to show off its iOS 8, it is highly unlikely that there will be another version of the iOS 7.1.
When we compare the iOS 7 with its predecessor — iOS 6 – the iOS 7 has worked pretty well on Apple devices.
Apple had releases nine versions of iOS 6 that went up to iOS 6.1.6 in a period of about 15 months.
As this update has come when the major iOS release is very near, the chances of getting an exact jailbreak are also very thin. However, people who prefer jailbreak over bugs can stay with their earlier version of iOS.
