Apple releases iOS 7.1 – Carplay support, new Siri options and bug fixes


Apple on Monday released iOS 7.1, its first major update to the software that powers the iPhone and iPad since it released iOS 7 last year.

The new update, a free 280-megabyte download, adds some new options for Siri, improved fingerprint sensing with Touch ID and aims to fix an irksome bug that caused some users to have their iPhones spontaneously reboot during use.

As always, make sure you have a recent backup before applying the update.
