On Monday Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) released an update to its iOS 7 that adds new features, such as CarPlay and fixes bugs. The new update is compatible with iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, and iPod (5th generation devices). The update includes 41 bug fixes along with user device tweaks, such as visual changes to the phone dialer and power-off features.

Apple iOS 7.1 for iPhone and iPad                                                     

Apple initially unveiled iOS 7 six months ago at its developer conference in June last year and launched the OS in September. The design was a complete overhaul with everything from typography and color schemes being updated. Other useful updates included AirDrop and iTunes Radio and a control center that gave quick access to most used features. So far five beta updates of iOS 7.1 have been sent to developers.

About 83% of Apple device users have downloaded iOS 7, Apple said. The upgrade to iOS 7.1 was mainly to make the usage faster for iPhone4 users who had a slow performing chip than Apple’s newest phones and tablets.


Here is the video, showing what’s new in iOS 7.1:

Below are several features that have been added and modified:

Apple CarPlay in iOS 7.1


An iOS designed for the car; it supports iPhone calling, music, maps, messaging. It also allows users to control functions through Siri. Several car manufacturers such as Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo have announced that it will be introduced to their new cars in Geneva during the Auto show.

Calendar Changes

The list includes country specific holidays for many locations and allows users to toggle over days to see their appointments

Camera settings

iPhone 5s users can automatically enable camera in HDR mode.

Touch id

The Fingerprint recognition software, one of the key features of iPhone 5S has been improved.

With its user interface and bug improvements, the update is designed to fix the issues users had with the initial software. Some insiders reported that it was rushed in order to be timed with the release of iPhone 5s and 5c last September.

This will most likely be the final update the iPhone 4 will receive. No iOS release has progressed beyond version X.1. While minor features and tweaks are common the next launch will most likely be iOS 8 in June along with the launch of iPhone 6. The size of the upgrade is a staggering 1.95 GB so it’s best done over Wi-Fi.

Happy downloading, iOS users.
