Apple starts to release iOS 7.0.1

Apple starts to release iOS 7.0.1
Apple just released iOS7 last Wednesday. Now, iOS 7.0.1 has been released. One of our loyal readers popped into an AT&T store and started playing around with an Apple iPhone 5c that was on display. After taking a photo of the mid-range Apple device, our tipster noted that there was a software update on the unit. Looking closely, he saw that it was iOS 7.0.1.

Last week, we told you that both iOS 7.0.1 and iOS 7.0.2 have appeared in some analytics reports. There is some speculation that the iOS 7.0.1 update repairs a bug with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and fixes a problem with the iTunes App Store purchasing system. If you look at the picture of the update notification that our source snapped, it does mention that the update offers bug fixes and improvements.

While Apple has said that it will work to repair the current lockscreen security breach that allows the bad guys to go through your pictures and social networks, and make an international or premium call on your locked down iPhone, that will have to wait for iOS 7.0.2 at the earliest.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!
