Hot on the heels of its big hardware and software announcements today, Apple has just issued iOS version 7.0.3 to all devices supported by iOS 7. In addition to adding support for the new iPads (all the demo units at Apple’s event today were running 7.0.3), the update includes a list of fixes longer than its small version number increase would imply.
The biggest change is the addition of iCloud Keychain support, a feature that was also introduced to Macs inOS X Mavericks today. The feature promises to sync your passwords and some other information between Macs and iOS devices, and we’ll be giving it a more thorough look in the coming days.
The “reduce motion” setting in the accessibility options has also been tweaked to shorten the overlong animation durations we complained about in our re-review of iOS 7 on the iPhone 4 (previously, it was used only to disable the parallax motion on the home screen). Also fixed is a sensor calibration issue in the iPhone 5S that we reported earlier this month, a problem that was preventing some iMessages from being sent, yet another lock screen bug, and a problem affecting the operating system’s stability when using iWork apps. The full list of fixes can be found on Apple’s support site.
