New MDM features coming with mid-March release of iOS 7.1?
The latest news about iOS 7.1 is that the new iOS build will be released mid-way through next month. And while there will be new features and bug fixes, one of the most important changes will be in the field of MDM, or Mobile Device Management. MDM is used by corporations and government agencies to control and have oversight over a fleet of mobile devices. It also allows the administrator to disable the camera on applicable devices.
Apple has just gone live with a website called Volume Services. The speculation is that this site will be available for MDM use once iOS 7.1 is released. It is expected to allow for automatic MDM enrollment and the volume purchase of apps and books.

When  iOS 7.1 does launch, it will met by a large number of iOS 7 users waiting to update. Consider that 82% of iOS users are running iOS 7 while 15% are using iOS 6. iOS 7.1 beta 2 was released in December and included a fix for TouchID and a small repair for iTunes Match. Beta numbers 3 through 5 were sent out in January and included a fix for iCloud account setups, audiobook improvements and a fix to end problems sending messages on iMessage. It also included more natural sounding voices for Siri in Australian and British English, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese. Also rumored to be coming with iOS 7.1 is the iOS in the Car application, a version of iOS made for automobiles.

We could be less than a month away until the official release of iOS 7.1. Getting excited yet?
