iOS 7.1.1 released, improvements to Touch ID and keyboard performance on board
Apple took the ribbon off an update to iOS today, version 7.1.1. While it is a minor update with the standard “bug fixes” fare of goodies, a couple key features should see notable improvements.

For iPhone 5s users, Touch ID performance should be improved. There were some grumblings around the internet about the fingerprint sensor’s ability to “remember” fingerprints. Over time, the Touch ID’s sensor performance would degrade and users would have to re-scan their prints.

Another notable area of focus was for the iPhone’s keyboard. Apple squashed some bugs in an effort to improve the on-screen keyboard’s responsiveness. For those that like to connect a Bluetooth keyboard, Apple has also tweaked settings to allow better performance of the VoiceOver feature when using a Bluetooth connected keyboard.

iOS 7.1.1 should be available for the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5c, and 5s, along with the iPad 2, the newer retina iPads, iPad Air, both generations of the iPad Mini, and last but not least, the fifth generation iPod.

Grab the update on your iOS device by checking “Settings,” then “Software Update.” The file is roughly 19MB, so the update will not take too long.
