The day Apple released its two new iPhones, it also rolled out a firmware update developed just for them. iOS 7.0.1 is now available for the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C.
On September 18, Apple finally released iOS 7 to the public. Millions of users around the world have, by now, updated their compatible devices to the latest iteration of iOS which brings more than 200 new features. It also comes with an entirely new user interface, which is without a doubt of the main selling points of the update. Despite the fact that it has already been rumored that Apple is testing iOS 7.0.1 and future firmware updates, a minor update has been rolled out for the new iPhones today.
Apple doesn’t go into detail about the changes that this minor update brings, it simply says that “bug fixes and improvements” are included in iOS 7.0.1. Apparently the update was released to address a bug which affects the Touch ID sensor of the iPhone 5S. The bug is said cause issues when Touch ID is used to make purchases on iTunes.
Users who have been able to get their hands on an iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C can now download and install iOS 7.0.1 either over-the-air or through their Windows or Mac computer by plugging in their device and launching the new iTunes.
