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!

I got it yesterday around 11am lol. I always also see articles of things on this site hours and days after I see the same thing on other sites. No wonder they are looking for more writers lol.

Still waiting for camera comparisons and sh*t. Nothing but boring news about BBM the past 24 hours.

Apple gets two thumbs up from me in the camera department. I want to see how it matches against the Z1 and the 1020. As far as BBM, well let's just say... they're officially dying.

"Still waiting for camera comparisons..." Maybe PA is still waiting for the FedEx truck to bring them their 5S? That they had to purchase (as opposed to being provided a reviewer unit by Apple).

Maybe!. Lol. If Apple were to give all tech sites a phone, my name would be Barack Obama. Oh well, I'll just keep playing Nimble Quest until they release one.

iphone 5s kills most of the android flagship smartphones! this is insane! haha! now im sure for the gen it will be much more faster, just give us 4.5" display with the same dimensions, large phones seems to be ugly for me, larger screens is kinda cool, just trim the upper vessel and put a 4.5" display...

Kills??? How so? I will admitt the 5S is the fastest smartphone on the market, but that's about all there is. It still doesn't do much of anything.

The biggest thing for me has always been the applications. For some reason developers just don't care for Android and that's clear with the quality of some Android applications and the time it takes for popular iOS apps to arrive on Android...if ever

Can't agree with you there, but I will be honest. There are some apps that run smoother and look beget on the iPhone. It's true. But there are developers who put just as much effort into Android as they do ios, if not more. I use them both and rarely do I find myself saying, "This is better on ios." And when I do, the difference is negligible. But I always find myself saying "I wish I could do this or that on my iPad".

Apple confirm 4" screen is the best. Why buy iPhone and yet complain about the screen size. I am buying a note 3 you don't see me complain about 5" screen is too big.

I hope they fix the lag of the iPad Mini running iOS7, and the battery drain.

3. Sauce unregistered

I see no signs of lag on my girls iPad Mini. I do see battery drain though. Hopefully they fix it [soon].

Battery drain happens on the iPhone 5 as well. As far as the lag on the Mini, it's horrendous.

Isn't the mini running the A4 chipset? Hamsters are working overtime in the A4 trying to keep up with iOS 7 resource demands.

35. PapaSmurf

Mini is running a A5 chip.

Dual Core A5 chip to be exact.

But a A5 chip nonetheless correct? Don't try to be a smartass. ;)

I noticed some lag on my parent's ipad 4 after iOS7. hope that gets fixed for them.

By demoing the iPhone 5C today at T-Mobile, the iPhone 5S, 5th gen iPod Touch, iPad 4 and the iPad Mini at Best Buy, iOS 7 is completely unstable... Lag is noticeable even on the 5S, which is something that shouldn't be happening at all. The lag on the Mini happens just by switching the orientation. My cousin's iPhone 5 gets half the battery life from before. I'm not hating on Apple, as I love them, but they rushed the hell out of iOS 7 and it still feels like it's in beta.

You think because it's rushed or more feature filled than the previous 6 versions? iOS has always been one or two steps ahead of the hardware but 7 has a lot more than they've ever put into an update before, can't help to think that's part of it.

11. PapaSmurf

No. It's rushed because the fluidity and user experience it's supposed to offer isn't there. If the 5S lags, that's saying a lot. Apple needs to hurry and push updates to their devices.

Allowing true multitasking will create lag and battery drain hope it's improve through time. Same problem with Android, Google have to go thru a few generations of software development to curb the lags and battery drain. Apple might learn a few things by studying android source code.
