Apple releases iOS 7.1

Michael Robert

Apple has released iOS 7.1 to the public marking the first major update to iOS 7 since its September release.

Apple has launched a new website page that shows off some of the additions to iOS 7.1.

The update makes the phone slightly fast and is really noticeable on the iPhone 4s. The update includes visual tweaks which are most noticeable in the Phone app. The slide to unlock button has a slight colour change, the slide to power off has a new look and the screen dims until off when sliding.
