Apple released iOS 7.1 on Monday with a number of new features, improvements, refinements and bug fixes.

Yesterday, Apple acknowledged that a manufacturing issue is affecting some iPhone 5s units that causes shortened battery life and longer charging times. The company said that it will be reaching out to customers with these defective units and issuing replacements.
A few weeks after the iPhone 5s went on sale, people started noticing that its motion sensors on the device are significantly miscalibrated, and report erroneous motion related data to apps.

iPhone 5s users are reporting that they’re getting the “Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)” error, a problem that ironically plagued older Windows PCs.
According to the discussion threads on Apple support forums, iPhone 5s users are reporting random reboots following a BSOD when they use Apple’s iWorks apps.
Apple doesn’t seem to be having a good time with their online services lately.
MacRumors reports that Apple’s activation servers are down again, which means that users who have just bought or restored their iPhone or any other iOS device with cellular service may face problems activating their device.
