Apple Releases iOS 7.1.1 update To Fix Touch ID, Keyboard Issues


Apple released a new iOS update on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch on Tuesday. The iOS 7.1.1 software update is meant to focus on bringing further improvements to Touch ID fingerprint recognition (iPhone 5S) and fix a bug that could impact keyboard responsiveness.

The new software update, which is now available for download, will also solve an issue using Bluetooth keyboards with VoiceOver enabled. The iOS 7.1.1 update is mandatory to download, so we would recommend you to update the software immediately.


The update is available for all devices that run iOS 7 and varies between 15 and 30MB in size depending on which device you are using, notes AnandTech.

Those who own the iPhone 5S will be benefitted the most, as the update brings noteworthy improvements for TouchID recognition on the device.

On the security front, the update includes a number of fixes for issues that could allow an attacker to obtain your website credentials, change operations performed in SSL-protected sessions, or install malware on a vulnerable device.

Apple last month released a major update for Apple's iOS 7 mobile OS. The update improved things like the TouchID sensor on the iPhone 5S and modifying user interface of the OS. That update also brought some changes to the calendar and camera.

Apple is expected to preview the next-gen version of iOS during its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), in June 2014.
