Apple has, and always, been in news for a number of reasons both in the past and present times. And one of the biggest among them is related to the potential release of the upcoming iOS 7.1 update - apart from others related to the next iPhone 6 and every other specifications the device may or may not boast.
The update, which is rumored to be released in less than a month, contrary to the popular beliefs that have been making rounds, is said to be not that special an update as several reports have claimed in the past that it won't arrive with any real special features, and will just be offering a host of user-interface tweaks, visual enhancements, and performance fixes.
However, the iOS 7.1 beta release notes have already been pushed out, and if anyone has gone through them in recent times, there might still be a few clues that could yet reveal as to what the iOS 7.1 will bring eventually. And although we don't know what will arrive eventually, there are a few things that you could still expect from the build.
So here are the top 5 things that you should keep in mind before Apple's final build of iOS 7.1 is pushed out.
Keeping Check on Gold Master
If you are a seasoned Apple user, you should know that Apple will look to release a Gold Master version of iOS 7.1 to developers just before the operating system is publicly released. And since this has always happened before the release of the public version, there's hardly any reason why this year will be any different.
If you are one of those looking ahead to jailbreak your iPhone after installing the final version of iOS 7.1, as always, you can look ahead to receiving news of the final build of the OS. And this is since a number of developers like Pod2g will be waiting to get their hands on the update and will definitely receive any related news first hand.
Keep in mind that the already released betas for the next upgrade do serve as some kind of an hint for the final build. And users can take cue from those changes and expect some chnages to the device's slide-to-unlock functions, alongside similar changes made to the phone, dialer, music, and keyboard.
Expect The iOS 7.1 to arrive with more prominent Shuffle All and Repeat buttons since a number of sites have already spoken about it. This being said, Apple had already removed the invisible backgrounds from iOS 7 when the last upgrade was released.
As we have mentioned before, this remains to be one of the biggest mysteries surrounding the next iOS 7.1 upgrade. However, since it has been rumored and written everywhere, keep in mind that the update could indeed happen in March. Keep your fingers crossed.
