Build number 11D5099e, the iOS 7.1 now is available for registered iOS developers to download from Apple's Developer Center, so that the developers can test it out with their apps before a final release.
The new iOS 7.1 is the first major update since Apple dramatically changed the look of its mobile OS. "This version of iOS in intended for installation only on devices registered with the Apple Developer Program. Attempting to install this version of iOS in an unauthorized manner could put your device in an unusable state," App warns in its release notes. The release notes tip some technical upgrades, but there are also a few tweaks to the interface.
Apple releases iOS 7.1 to mostly focus on the usual bug fixes. And it also adds some interesting UI changes as well as performance enhancements. Here are the main changes of iOS 7.1.
Beyond that and the usual improvements and bug fixes, there is not much to report yet. The iOS 7.1 beta comes after the release of iOS 7.0.4, which included "a fix for an issue that causes FaceTime calls to fail for some users".
Many people speculated that the iOS 7.1 final release date to the public will arrive in time for Christmas for iPhone and iPad. Apple hasn't yet to confirm it.comments powered by Disqus
