Apple to release iOS 7.1 update for iPhone and iPad in March
iPhone, iPad and iPad owners should get iOS 7.1 in March
Apple passed the iOS 7.1 beta to developers back in November for final testing and it looks as though the update could be released to consumers in March, according to sources familiar with Apple's plans.
The new update will be the major first revision to the iOS 7 platform which was introduced alongside the iPhone 5S and 5C back in September. So what improvements and new features can we expect from iOS 7.1?
Well, the new iOS 7 user-interface is going to remain largely unchanged - with small tweaks made to the design here and there. That's hardly surprising given that iOS 7 introduced the biggest design overhaul since the introduction of iOS 4 in 2010.
The focus of iOS 7.1 will be on improving performance, boosting security and resolving bugs. We're hoping that particular attention is payed towards improving the speed and stability of the platform on older Apple devices, such as the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
Apple are also expected to introduce an improved 'Calender' application, while they'll continue to improve Siri with voice-control expected to become increasingly important in the next few months. Apparently, you'll also get support for Burst-Photo Uploading, Auto HDR mode (iPhone 5S only) and a new Dark Keyboard mode.
