Apple Releases iOS 7.0.3 With iCloud Keychain Support and Bug Fixes. Jailbreakers Stay Away!



Just a quick heads-up: Apple has released today iOS 7.0.3 for all supported devices ( also brings support for the two new iPads unveiled today ) which includes a lot of fixes and some new features. Jump over the break to check out whats new…

The biggest change is the addition of iCloud Keychain support, a feature that was also introduced to Macs in OS 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 . Also fixed is a sensor calibration issue in the iPhone 5S, 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. Check out a full list of changes below…

  • Adds iCloud Keychain to keep track of your account names, passwords, and credit card numbers across all your approved devices
  • Adds Password Generator so Safari can suggest unique, hard-to-guess passwords for your online accounts
  • Updates lock screen to delay display of “slide to unlock” when Touch ID is in use
  • Adds back the ability to search the web and Wikipedia from Spotlight search
  • Fixes an issue where iMessage failed to send for some users
  • Fixes a bug that could prevent iMessage from activating
  • Improves system stability when using iWork apps
  • Fixes an accelerometer calibration issue
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Siri and VoiceOver to use a lower quality voice
  • Fixes a bug that could allow someone to bypass the Lock screen passcode
  • Enhances the Reduce Motion setting to minimize both motion and animation
  • Fixes an issue that could cause VoiceOver input to be too sensitive
  • Updates the Bold Text setting to also change dial pad text
  • Fixes an issue that could cause supervised devices to become un-supervised when updating software

The update can be done straight on the device OTA ( over-the-air ) or via iTunes. However, potential iOS7 jailbreakers should stay away from today’s 7.0.3 for now. Too early to tell if it closes anything important for JB.

NOTE: iOS 7.0.3 safe for jailbreaking. Read about it here
