iOS 7.1

A couple days ago iOS 7.1 was released, and it seems to have been a long time coming. Normally the jailbreakers wait to release until at least the .1 version comes out so that the jailbreak won't be immeadiatly broken, but 7.1 has taken so long that the jailbreak has actually been out for quite a while now.

There is nothing to throw a party about in iOS 7, but it is a nice update for some. Most of the updates had no direct effect on me as they tendend to be for features I don't have (like Car Play) or don't use (like Siri's Mandarain voice). Things are suppose to run faster now, but I can't really say that I noticed, but of course I did not notice things running slow prior to the update so some of these will be bigger for those who were experiencing problems before.

Anyway, here is a list, tell me your thoughts in the comments below.

  • CarPlay

    • Simply connect your iPhone to a CarPlay enabled vehicle
