iOS 7 was released almost two weeks ago and in that time there have been several problems. There have been two updates since, one that was specific to Apple’s newest iOS devices, and the second, which is iOS 7.0.2 just recently. This was to resolve an issue with the lockscreen, as some people were able to bypass the passcode.
Now this security issue has been fixed we now look to iOS 7.1, and the update should coincide with the iPad 5 release, which will be next month. It makes perfect sense for Apple to include the latest version of their mobile OS, and we do hope to see it made available at the same time to all users.

We do know there will be another update before then, which will be iOS 7.0.3, but this will be just another minor update to resolve some other issues. There are already several bugs that still need to be resolved, such as dropped calls, keypad being dialed with people’s ears and so much more.
iOS 7.1 should bring with it several new features, some of which will be to benefit the new iPad 5, although we do not know what these new features will be. It has been rumored that the iPad 5 will be unveiled during an event on October 15th, with an expected release date a week or so later.
It was the assumption the iPad mini 2 would be unveiled and released alongside the iPad 5, but with reports of constrained production, we cannot be certain of this now. There have been rumors the iPad mini 2 price will be a little higher, but we could only accept this if the features warrant an increase in price.
