    iOS 7.1.1 has been released for public download/update. For the iPhone 5S, users will have a more responsive experience with their keyboard, minor tweaking/improving of TouchID as well as Bluetooth Keyboard with VoiceOver enabled. Additionally, 7.1.1 also addresses the following security issues:

    CFNetwork HTTPProtocol
    Available for: iPhone 4 and later,
    iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
    Impact: An attacker in a privileged network position can obtain web
    site credentials
    Description: Set-Cookie HTTP headers would be processed even if the
    connection closed before the header line was complete. An attacker
    could strip security settings from the cookie by forcing the
    connection to close before the security settings were sent, and then
    obtain the value of the unprotected cookie. This issue was addressed
    by ignoring incomplete HTTP header lines.

    IOKit Kernel
    Available for: iPhone 4 and later,
    iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
    Impact: A local user can read kernel pointers, which can be used to
    bypass kernel address space layout randomization
    Description: A set of kernel pointers stored in an IOKit object
    could be retrieved from userland. This issue was addressed through
    removing the pointers from the object.


    Security - Secure Transport
    Available for: iPhone 4 and later,
    iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
    Impact: An attacker with a privileged network position may capture
    data or change the operations performed in sessions protected by SSL
    Description: In a 'triple handshake' attack, it was possible for an
    attacker to establish two connections which had the same encryption
    keys and handshake, insert the attacker's data in one connection, and
    renegotiate so that the connections may be forwarded to each other.
    To prevent attacks based on this scenario, Secure Transport was
    changed so that, by default, a renegotiation must present the same
    server certificate as was presented in the original connection.


    WebKit
    Available for: iPhone 4 and later,
    iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
    Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an
    unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution
    Description: Multiple memory corruption issues existed in WebKit.
    These issues were addressed through improved memory handling.

    In short, Apple continues on the road to resolving their previous SSL issue (which was patched in 7.0.6 but remnant vulnerabilities still exists) and boosting security over protected and unprotected networks, continues to go down the road of WebKit tweaking, which is somewhat supplementary to a bug in the language pack where a specific string of Arabic characters when scrolled or loaded on your browser or app, will cause your device to crash. The kernel fix patches the KASLR exploit/vulnerability, one of the remaining Evasi0n7 exploits that was not patched on 7.1.

    So no bug fixes at all for other connectivity issues and battery life issues for other devices? Only SSL patches and exploit patches? Wow. I expect everyone to be mad.

    What devices are you referring to? I have the latest IOS on iPhone 4, iPad mini, and iPad 2 (before I sold it for Air). All worked well. I admit though the iPhone 4 was miserable until 7.1 but now is stable. Are you sure their isn't another issue causing battery drain and the connectivity issues?

    I'm not having this problem but I am referring to all the devices that has problems, not a specific model of an device because there are iPad 2's that have problems, some do not have problems, there are some iPad Airs that have problems, there are some that dies not have problems.

    I can't install the update and says "Software update not available". Apple severs must be bombarded. I may have to wait.

    I updated my iPad 4 to 7.1.1 last night. Frankly, couldn't notice any difference. I had hoped that it would solve the rotation lag issue with onscreen keyboard on, but not to be.

    I agree. These updates are boring. Never notice any real differences.

    I am not sure to do the update in my iPhone 5s... I'm afraid about the battery life. Well, I updated my iPad 3 and I only see there's a bug when you use four fingers for the multitask manager, move the miniatures and choose one, if you reduce the motion thing in accessibility....

    Well the IDAPT desk charger I've been using for my iPhone 5, iPad 2 and the wife's iPhone 4 for more than 6 months is now throwing "Accessory may not be supported" messages for the iPhone 5.

    Still seems to be charging but....
