Apple has released iOS 7.1 to its iDevices

Right on schedule, Apple started seeding the iOS 7.1 update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

The most noticeable changes appear at the user interface level including certain tweaks to the phone dialer and the power off area, where Apple chose round UI elements. Furthermore, the accept and decline buttons in the incoming call have also been tweaked, as well as the repeat and shuffle icons in the Music player.

There are also some smaller but still relevant improvements to the keyboard with the delete and shift keys coming out more prominent now. Additionally, the user is now capable of disabling the parallax effect when selecting a custom image for a wallpaper.

A rather big problem was the random reboots bug, which this update is said to have fixed.

One of the reasons why iOS 7.1 was so anticipated is because it brings support for the company's new CarPlay feature, allowing users to access their phone through their car via voice commands. Obviously, Siri is at the core of this feature, which gives drivers the chance to dictate messages or manage their music without ever touching their iPhone.

Since we mentioned music, it's important to remind users that iTunes Radio is also updated in iOS 7.1, sporting new additions such as quick iTunes Match subscription directly from the phone, featured station search, as well as quickly create stations based on previous searches .

Now that you read all this, head on over to your iDevice and get iOS 7.1, which is already seeding globally.
