In December, a rumor surfaced that Apple was working on iOS 7.1 with a expected release date in March. Since then, the company has seeded the third, fourth, and fifth betas of the update to developers, and is likely putting the finishing touches on the public release version. According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple will be releasing iOS 7.1 next month, as previously expected.
The report notes there may not be any surprises in this update, and users will be receiving the features we’ve seen since the third beta. iOS 7.1 contains several UI enhancements, including a lightened Phone icon as well as circular designs for the Slide to Power Off feature and the call, accept, and decline buttons in the Phone application.
The report notes that Apple may be releasing iOS 7.1 during a rumored Apple TV event in March, which is very likely when looking at events in previous years. It is also possible Apple will release a few more betas before releasing the update to the public.
