iOS 7.1 Release Coming in Early March

Apple is believed to announce iOS 7.1 IPSW release date in March. Such rumor has been posted by different resources. A lot of rumors about Apple releases turned out to be truthful in the past thus this one might also be real. Early March could be the time when iOS 7 untethered jailbreak stops working on version 7.1.

According to reports, we will not get any more betas of firmware v.7.1. Meaning the fifth one was the last upgrade that killed all major exploits used in Evasi0n7 program for successful jailbreak. Do hackers still have time to discover new exploits using the 7.1 beta 5 release? This question is believed to stay unanswered till the official launch arrives.

We’ve heard that iH8sn0w has found one important iBoot exploit for iOS 6.1.3 that might help to develop a new jailbreak. Yet it is unclear how this hacker is planning to use his discovery. He might share it with other hackers or keep to himself. There is no information that he would make it public any time soon thus if you are using a jailbroken iOS 7 device you should avoid updating to iOS 7.1 till everything is cleared about its jailbreaking state.

The next mobile firmware for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch should give an easy menu for turning off parallax effect that drives a lot of customers crazy. It will support wallpapers through Perspective zoom option.

The Cupertino-based tech company has added some tweaks to its UI. It will become much easier to answer and make phone calls, type on the iOS keyboard which can be turned darker and enjoy icon updates. The fresh look of iOS 7.1 should make this operating system more attractive and intuitive.

The changes come to Calendar application which should get an improved event list view. These are not all the enhancements. We’ll see more once Apple officially releases iOS 7.1. Does the company have enough time to fix all the bugs that surfaced in its firmware? The latest one found makes it possible to actually bypass Find My iPhone option and disable it without a password. This should be fixed and we believe the company is working on solving all the problems now.
