iOS 7.1 features detailed ahead of consumer release

iOS 7.1 features detailed ahead of consumer releaseiOS 7 celebrates its two-month anniversary this week, and in its relatively short existence we’ve had a handful of minor updates in the form of iOS 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, and most recently 7.0.4.

The next “major” version (if we can call it that) is iOS 7.1, and with the beta version now being served to developers, it’s probably safe to say it’ll hit compatible iPhones, iPads and iPod touches everywhere pretty soon.

In the meantime, an unnamed developer has passed a copy of the iOS 7.1 release notes to Pocket-lint.

iOS 7.1 features include the fairly standard fixes for "network connection issues" and "performance bugs", alongside – wait for it – an upgraded Flickr logo, Photo Stream compatibility for pictures taken in burst mode, and a spanking new “auto HDR mode” option in the Camera app.

“How did we ever live without iOS 7.1?” is what no one will say.

If you haven’t installed last week's iOS 7.0.4 update already, you should see a little '1' next to Settings. Tap it, followed by General and Software Update, and a whole new world awaits; a world in which FaceTime calls no longer fail for some users. Exciting stuff.

There are no less than 12 iDevices compatible with iOS 7, namely the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini Retina, and the fifth-generation iPod touch. Phew.

Well, I'm sure there are some under the hood improvements, also.
Been using an iPhone 5c over the weekend (by the way: oddly, a nice device. In many subtle ways it is different to the iPhone 5, and get over the looks: it feels nice in the hand. Who cares what it looks like?) and, ahem... oh, yes - though it is a good product on its own merits (disregarding what people expected, or how similar it is to the 5 etc), it does have a few bugs on iOS 7.04 - deleting tracks from the music app can close the player now and again etc...
