Apple seeds iOS 7.0.3 to employees and partners as more bugs are found

Apple seeds iOS 7.0.3 to employees and partners as more bugs are found
Earlier Wednesday, we told you that Apple would be sending out a software update to fix some problems that iMessage users were having getting their messages sent out in a timely fashion. Some messages were being received hours late, in a batch with other tardy posts. The buzz on the street is that iOS 7.0.3 has been seeded to employees and partners for final testing. We're not sure what the changelist will read for the update, but we would expect it to fix the iMessage problem and possibly some other glitches that one of our loyal readers has discovered.

One problem involves the word iCloud showing up randomly on the screen of an Apple iPhone 5 running iOS 7. The second glitch involved the status bar on top of the screen disappearing. A quick reset of the phone solved the problem. Anyone else getting these weird glitches on their iPhone?

We expect iOS 7.0.3 to be pushed out next week. The build number is 11B491. As soon as we hear more about it, we will pass the news on to you.


Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

"One problem involves the word iCloud showing up randomly on the screen of an Apple iPhone 5 running iOS 7. The second glitch involved the status bar on top of the screen disappearing." LOL. Just LOL. Another glitch - iOS users randomly throwing their phones to the sea and buying an android phone. Apple is yet to come to a solution for this glitch, but Phil Schiller was quoted in saying "even in the depths of the sea iOS causes fish to vomit because of the parallax effect". :D

Sorry, that survey doesn't represent the worldwide smartphone switch. Probably just one country.

Moreover iOS 7 is rushed, every time they are releasing new update in smaller versions for bugs found, this is so iStupid. They need to fix all bugs and release a higher version update or more stable build.

IOS 7 has so many bugs it's not even funny. Overlapped PNGs are rife in this OS. IOS now feels like a nightly version of a custom Android rom.

Anyone have an issue with search? If you search in your calendar, it only lists events for the past year. It used to list everything. Also, searching in your text messages doesn't bring up the correct results. Hope they found and fixed these bugs too.
