Apple releases iOS 7.0.3 with support for iCloud Keychain, Touch ID tweaks

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Following the unveiling of its latest iPads on Tuesday, Apple released iOS 7.0.3, the latest minor software update for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, bringing about iCloud Keychain password saving integration with the newly released OS X Mavericks.

iOS


With iOS 7.0.3, users' passwords and other data can be saved and synced across devices, safely and securely. iCloud Keychain will keep track of account names, passwords, and credit card numbers across all approved devices.

A new Password Generator has also been added to the Safari browser, giving unique, hard-to-guess passwords for online accounts.

iOS 7.0.3 also updates the lock screen on the iPhone 5s to delay the display of "slide to unlock" when Touch ID is in use.

In addition, the update also addresses an issue where iMessages would fail to send for some users. The update also reportedly fixes a bug that could prevent iMessage from activating.

Other changes in the update, according to Apple, include:
  • Improves system stability when using iWork apps
  • Fixes an accelerometer calibration issue
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Siri and VoiceOver to use a lower quality voice
  • Fixes a bug that could allow someone to bypass the Lock screen passcode
  • Enhances the Reduce Motion setting to minimize both motion and animation
  • Fixes an issue that could cause VoiceOver input to be too sensitive
  • Updates the Bold Text setting to also change dial pad text
  • Fixes an issue that could cause supervised devices to become un-supervized when updating software
.
The update is available for iPad generations two through four, the iPad mini, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, and the fifth-generation iPod touch.

Wow, that's a lot of bugfixes in a point release. Don't recall ever seeing such an extensive list before.

That being said, still not available from Software Update on my iPhone 5.

It was available via iTunes iOS update when I plugged in my iPhone 4, now updating my iPad mini.

Cool. I just asked about this on a different article. I knew when mavericks came out icloud keychains would come back to iOS.

I wonder how many security issues the latest point upgrade of Android addresses.

Any idea how they segment the distribution?

 

Doesn't show up for me either on my 5s.

Didn't show up on my 5s until I turned off wifi and used LTE only. But once it did appear it required wifi to download it :???: Turned wifi back on, returned to update screen, go. Weird.

If hisory is any indicator then it is certainly less as there would be less security issues to address.  Last year there were 387 documented vulnerabilities in iOS compared to 13 in Android (source: Symantec Internet Security Report 2013).

Yo, tough guy, you forgot to add some crucial data from the report.

 

Page 35 after those cool pictures you looked at also said this 

"The vast majority of vulnerabilities

on mobile systems were on the iOS

platform. However, the higher number

of vulnerabilities is not indicative of a

higher level of threat, because most

mobile threats have not used software

vulnerabilities."

And yet in attacks Android is the far and away more popular target it seems. From the same source, Symantec, one year back (what I found fast):

"Symantec Corp.’s Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR) for 2012 was released on Tuesday. Buried among the data on targeted attacks and data breaches is some very interesting data on mobile vulnerabilities and malware. Of 108 new malicious programs for mobile devices identified in 2012, Symantec found, 103 – more than 95%)- targeted Android devices. Just one mobile threat targeted Apple’s iOS operating system during the same period."

Weird. Shows up for my 5 but not my iPad 4. Going to try to. Reboot, then detect over LTE, as it seems like that has been working for some.

Quantity certainty doesn't indicate severity. I read the posters question as being one about quantity. Didn't you?

You're absolutely correct. No one was debating that one (or even asking about that).

Security was the issue: attacks are realization of the issue presented only theoretically in "vulnerabilities"..

I'm wondering if Apple is staggering update availability based on IP address ranges to avoid overloading their servers.

Hope they address some of the copy and paste issues. I've noticed when selecting near a new paragraph the cursor seems to disappear often.
post #18 of 36
This update is great! The annoying zoom feature has been altered so when you have "minimal movement" setting applied it now dissolves. So much cleaner!
post #19 of 36

I got the options to upgrade when connecting my 5s and Mini thru iTunes.

 

iPhone 5s upgraded without issue.

 

The Mini failed mid upgrade, lost everything.  It had me restore from the backup it had made at the beginning.  2 hours later it has restored all the apps but my movies, music, and some other data are gone.

 

That was easy...

 

Edit, the reduce motion is better, I do prefer the new fading but miss the parallax which was subtle and cool, wish these had separate toggles.

The instant lock any time you hit standby on the 5s with no option to extend like on the Mini is still annoying.

The lackluster look and whimpy text and overly bright screens are still here, oh well..

Quoting myself because I just downloaded and found out that yes they have infact addressed the iMessages and copy and paste issues.

This update is looking real good on my iPad 3. Well at least for the last 20 minutes it has.

That's the only thing I care about at the moment. How many new versions do you think we'll have to wait for them to backpedal silently to accommodate reality without admitting to having made these mistakes?

Never because only a small whiny minority considers these as 'mistakes'

@ StephanJobs

 

The copy paste disappearing cursor has been a real grinder.

Yeah it pissed me off for awhile. Seems to be fixed and stable now.

Looks like they also reduced the distance to swipe required to navigate back and forth between pages in Safari. Much easier now.
post #27 of 36

Siri seems to be a lot snappier now, which makes me happy.

Yay, Motion has been further reduced! I can now still look at my phone when opening apps!
post #29 of 36

Podcats got a redo, looks okay.

 

Not sure whether I like the SAFARI (desktop) Top Sites redo.

post #30 of 36

Bit white this new Podcats.  

 

I quite liked the old grey, helped visually distinguish it from Music.app.

I prefer poddogs. J/k. I'm missing the notification badge on the icon itself. I still see the badges on my podcast subscriptions.

The transition effect that they added on the reduce motion function speeds up navigation so much! Much needed and well received :)

I've have a bluetooth issue between my Iphone 4s and Toyota navigator 510, since I've updated my iphone to IOS 7.0.1.

post #34 of 36
My battery on 5S seems to drop a lot faster since the update. Anyone else out there experience similar?

Since yesterday to 7.0.3? No.

 

Might want to check what the thing turned on: some of those background app refreshes can keep the gps chip running constantly and that'd be a huge drain. Bluetooth got turned on when I upgraded my 5 to iOS 7: but IIRC the decimal upgrades to my 5s haven;t turned that back on.

post #36 of 36

I will say that 7.0.3 is an improvement, but I still think iOS7 has a long ways to go until it is useable, IMO.  

 

Less animation and movement is a fantastic step, and will help a lot of people who were having trouble.  It simply was (now that I have it turned off) too much eye candy.

 

Still needs work, though.

 

Notes, for example, is still too white.  The iPad mini also pixelates it so it is not that clear.

Photos is also too white, and the icon reminds me of NBC's symbol, or a color palette for artwork, not photos.

The super thin icons in Mail, for example, are weak in comparison to the "buttons" to the left for Mailboxes and Edit.  

Ditto for the icons in Calendar; they are almost invisible.  It is an app, for goodness sake, so it should have visible interface elements.

Ditto the icons in Pages.

The keyboard is too bright still.

 

That's a start.  There is more.  As I have said in other threads, I really do not like iOS7.  I do hope they improve it, and it looks like they may be trying to.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."
