iOS 7.0.3 is released with fixes for iMessage, accelerometer bugs

Apple has pushed iOS 7.0.3 to iOS devices everywhere

If other recent Apple announcements weren't enough to get your head in a spin, Apple has pushed iOS 7.0.3 to iOS devices everywhere. The update adds support for iCloud Keychain and should provide two big fixes: both to the accelerometer calibration issue some users were seeing and recent iMessage bugs.

In addition, the update addresses several major complaints with iOS 7 and fixes bugs. For starters, the lock screen will now hold off on displaying "slide to unlock" when Touch ID is in use; Wikipedia and Web search have both been re-added to Spotlight; and the Reduce Motion option in Accessibility now minimizes both animation and motion.

On the bug side of the equation, system stability with iWork is improved; an issue with Siri and VoiceOver using lower-quality voices has been addressed; a Lock screen bypass has been patched; and several bugs with VoiceOver, Bold Text, and supervising software have been fixed.

The update is available via the Software Update screen in Settings > General on your iOS device running iOS 7 or later. You can view the update's security content via Apple's website.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
