iOS 7.1.1 Update Officially Released

By: Sean Patterson - April 23, 2014

On the eve of its second-quarter financial results, Apple has released a new update for its latest iOS operating system.

The iOS 7.1.1 update brings minor changes and fixes to the more significant iOS 7.1 update that was released back in March. The new iOS 7.1.1 update can be downloaded through Apple devices compatible with iOS 7.1, including the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad Air, iPad Mini, and the latest iPod touch devices.

According to the update’s description, iOS 7.1.1 brings yet another fix for the iPhone 5S’ Touch ID fingerprint recognition system. The update also includes several unlisted changes such as security patches and user interface tweaks. Fixes for the Touch ID system were one of the major features of the iOS 7.1 update, which also included a fix for a home screen crash bug and better iOS 7 optimization for the iPhone 4.

Other improvements included in the iOS 7.1.1 update include a fix for a bug “that could impact keyboard responsiveness” and a fix to make Bluetooth keyboards more compatible with VoiceOver.

The 7.1.1 update comes just as Apple is preparing to release its second-quarter earnings results. The company will hold its quarterly earnings conference call at 5 pm EDT today. The call will be broadcast live through the Apple website.

In January Apple released its first quarter results, showing yet another record quarter of holiday spending on iOS devices. The company took in $57.6 billion in revenue during the holiday quarter, up 5.6% over 2012’s holiday season.

As no new Apple product revisions have been released yet in 2014, analysts are not expecting the company’s second-quarter earnings to break records. However, with the company’s new rumored iPhone 6 on the way and a the possible release of the long-rumored “iWatch” smart watch this fall, Apple is poised to see tremendous revenue growth in the coming quarters.

    i was on 100% battery charge – i left the house and only used my phone a few times to check facebook messages, Line app, and my emails – a total of about 10mins using my phone in a 4 hour period… when i got home, my phone was down to 53%… before i could go the whole day at work for 8 hours and still have above 60%

    this is draining my battery…why???
