Apple releases iOS 7.1 – New Features

iOS 7.1 is out. Apple has released its first significant update for the iPhone 5S and iPad Air OS since iOS 7 in Sept 2013. This update does not include any big changes which may disrupt user experience. The biggest beneficiaries of this update will be the users with older generations or iPhone, starting from iPhone 4.


New features in iOS 7.1

  • CarPlay integration – It’s an in-car system that allows you to control your in-car entertainment and GPS with Siri
  • Parallax wallpapers switch – A minor tweak that adds a switch to turn off the parallax effect completely
  • Male and female Siri voices for the UK
  • Auto HDR on iPhone 5S
  • Better Siri interface – Siri listens upon pressing down the Home button, which makes the response time slightly quicker than before
  • Increased performance for older devices, specifically iPhone 4
  • Redesigned dialer – A visual refresh that places separate green and red circular blobs to take or reject calls rather than swipe
  • New unlock, power off animations – Minor visual tweaks to make them appear more prominent
