Apple releases iOS 7.0.1 for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c

ios 7 0 1 release

Along with the iOS 7 update for older iPhones, iPads and iPod touch, Apple also released iOS 7.0.1 for the newly released iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.

While the update hasn’t been formally announced by Apple, its servers leaked references to iOS 7.0.1 with build number 11A470a for “iPhone5,3”, “iPhone5,4”, “iPhone6,1” and “iPhone6,2.”

The release is likely to contain bug fixes for the issues reviewers mentioned in the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c reviews published yesterday. Here’s one bug WSJ’s Walt Mossberg pointed out in his review:

There is one bug in the system: Sometimes, while trying to use a finger to authenticate an online purchase, the phone asks for a password. Apple says it expects to fix this bug very quickly.

We’re not sure if Apple’s going to ship new iPhones with iOS 7.0 or iOS 7.0.1, but we’ll know soon, as the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c start selling in stores on September 20th.
