    For the first time you can go from the beta to final release OTA (iirc you couldn't before) but requires the full 1.4GB download (5s).

    Try software update on your device.

    Yeah, I could only see it as an OTA. Still not seeing it in iTunes.

    Mmm.. I don't like updating over the air ... prefer hard wired in case of wifi outages, errors etc.

    Apple are coming pretty thick and fast with the updates in the past couple months. All these little incremental amendments.

    7.0.5 & 7.0.6 were very specific fixes. 7.1 was a long time coming, since the November beta testing.

    Why does it have this cheap grey/dark grey shading now or was that always there?

    EDIT: For some reason the increase contrast was switched on.

    Hmmmm ....

    Gah! It's looking for 2.5GB of free space on my 5s to update OTA. As if there'd ever be 2.5GB of free space on my phone...! Will have to wait to do it on iTunes tomorrow.

    What are the initial reactions from people? Really hoping Touch ID is dramatically improved...

    Why ? Everyone I know using it says it is fabulous.

    Got a 5s today and downloaded it. Dunno if there's any noticeable difference tbh. I hadn't used it that much before updating.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,741 ✭✭✭Piliger


    7.1 just arrived on iTunes.

    It's never worked particularly well for me, even though Apple replaced my original phone:

    Upgrade asks for access to iPhone near the end while iPhone is still restarting ... disconcerting ... just wait and wait until the iPhone fully restarts and say ok.

    Siri's voice was supposed to be improved (not that it sounded bad for me) but now it sounds worse. Far more robotic. Both on iPhone 5s and iPad 3.

    Oh and this new look keyboard… oy vey :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,147 ✭✭✭Passenger


    Update only required around 700MB. It went smooth and operates nicely.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,741 ✭✭✭Piliger


    Can't find setting to change keyboard to dark ... anyone ?

    They've obviously never had fingers that were either too warm/cold/damp or had a bit of sweat on them

    That was only in the early betas and was subsequently dropped.

    For me, it's fabulous for about 24 hours, then it starts to fade and by about 36 hours it stops working altogether, regardless of the state if my fingers. It's been very disappointing, I must say.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,495 ✭✭✭✭guil


    I like the colours in the facetime app. Oity you cant choose to have the same in the phone app.

    Out of curiosity, anyone noticing to auto-correction crap since the update?
