A few weeks back Apple released iOS 7.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The software update brought a number of new features for supported devices, including CarPlay, which brings the iOS experience to cars. It appears that the company has been working on yet another software update though it just might an incremental one. Apple is expected to release iOS 7.1.1 in the near future and it might primarily bring bug fixes.
This is hardly surprising since Apple often releases bug fixes updates after a major release. iOS 7.1 was the first major update that came nearly six months after iOS 7.0 was first launched to the public late last year. Visits from devices running iOS 7.1.1 are being increasingly tracked online. This behaviour has been an indicator of an impending incremental update in the past as well.
Those who have been waiting for a major software announcement from the company don’t have to sit tight for too long now. This summer Apple is due to unveil iOS 8. There have already been a lot of rumors about what we can expect from the next iOS platform update. Rumors suggest that the company may simplify the overall user experience, shake up iTunes and perhaps even integrate Shazam’s music discovery technology within iOS itself.
