It was back in September when Apple finally released iOS 7 to the public. Apple’s latest and greatest iOS update, which totally changes the look and feel of the OS, has been very well received. Since the release, Apple has rolled out a few incremental updates to fix some bugs but it hasn’t made any drastic changes. That would come in a major update like iOS 7.1. Today, iOS 7.1 beta download became available for registered developers, which confirms that Apple has already started working on the next big update.
As of now, it can’t be said for sure exactly what new features Apple is going to add into iOS 7.1. Its possible that some user interface changes might be made as well. This is just the first beta version, we can expect the company to seed a few more before the update is ready for public release. It is obviously too soon to say right now when Apple intends to release iOS 7.1 to the public. Registered developers can now head over to the developers’ portal and download iOS 7.1 for supported devices, which include all smartphones from iPhone 4 up to iPhone 5s, the third and fourth generation iPads as well as the iPad Air, the original and the Retina iPad mini and the fourth and fifth generation iPod touch.
