Apple releases iOS 7.1 with CarPlay support, Siri and Touch ID improvements - Page 2

You can now change the gender of UK English Siri....liking the less robotic female approach! I haven't had time to check, but I think changing the Siri voice still changes the spelling.

Installed a few hours ago. My iPhone 5 now sure feel snappier. UI enhancements here and there looks great. Good stuff.

One of the things that really pisses me off is the today view that shows you the weather but does not show you the current temperature all the time. It shows you the high for the day and it shows you the low for the day sometimes but doesn't show you the current temperature all the time. That really pisses me off that you cannot control that.

Miniscule rant over.

ufff ok.  these file is heavy. let me se if there some issues or advantages installing the full image instead of having the patch.

Hooray - I can finally read the time and see the battery status on my home screen now.  Previously the brightness of my home screen photo made it very difficult to see then clearly.  Glad they addressed this.

We tested it using our web app, it used to crash on iPad 2/iPad mini, now runs fine without problems.

I, too, am hoping the crashes during app switching/springboard ops are resolved. They certainly are annoying for such an expensive device.

If iPhone crashes are the worst thing in your life then you are a very lucky person - count your blessings.

Seriously, even though it was probably a simple quick fix, this is sooo trivial and much more a personal organizational problem than a technical one. I guess some business users could possibly carry 10,000 emails for business or legal issues, but unread ?

There's still a few glaring bugs like the notes-date-to-first-line-gap that shirnks and grows depending on what it wants and the duplicate alarms that get created in Calendar. Both bugs which have been around for months now.

That's the same as Ars Technica, when an article about Microsoft is being posted on. We get all of those anti Apple people posting something pretty quickly. Strange to see it there though. But then, we get a lot of anti Apple posting in Apple articles too.

Let's face it, there's a rivalry between all of the various OSs and manufacturers. It will never stop anywhere, and you just have to get used to it, and stop letting it bother you.

Calendar Month View

Calendar Month View

March 2014 to Present

 

Guess Apple can chock that one up to, "Oops."

 Didn't hear about other changes to the calendar except for what's listed, but any chance the ability to duplicate events with a swipe on the device has been added?

 

Thanks.

Agreed! The springboard/multitasking crash was my entire eagerness for this update! At LAST!!

So far, on my iPad Air, I couldn't get it to crash! My iPhone 5S is still installing. So, I'll see when it's done. But, so far, everything is MUCH snappier and (appears to be) more stable! Transitions are very noticeably more snappy.

I also agree with the earlier post: It'd been nice to just rest my thumb on the TouchID sensor for Siri to know when I'm still dictating.

Maybe next time.

I wish Siri would get the option to process the voice to text on the phone instead of on Apple servers. I'm so tiered of waiting and waiting and waiting for Sire to come back only to have it get what I said wrong. Then I try again with same results and then try again and finally after a minute and a half too two minutes it gets it right. On the Mac you can enable this feature and it's amazing. As you speak the words just fly onto the screen. If it gets a word wrong you can change it before continuing. This would be the single most productivity enhancement the iPhone could get!

I thought I heard they were changing the volume button when playing a YouTube video so it didn't block the screen. That seems like such a glaring oversight design wise.

Did you update OTA? The natural response is to say it's my fault I didn't do a full update thru iTunes, but then I wonder why Apple would allow such a buggy update process with the OTA deltas.

Also, I updated an iPad mini OTA, but the download was 2.5 GB, which seems more than a delta update, and it too has the black search field bug.

Ota for my phone. I'm updating my iPad right now as I'm typing this. I always update iOS devices ota. Do t know why the mini update would be that big. Did you update all in between updates before this one? If not, that could be the reason. If you did, then I'm at a loss. I'll see what happens on my iPad once it's through.

What, on YouTube.com in Safari? That wouldn’t be different from the standard QuickTime control block.

Videos is still a world of pain. The UI fixes are over due, I don't notice any increase in speed on the 4s. Bit meh.

Yup.  Fixed.

 

Now, if Apple would just allow OTA updates over the LTE service I pay so much money for...

Yep all the intermediate updates were applied.

Hopefully the performance improvements on iPhone 4 are significant.  It can't possibly get much worse without rendering the phone entirely inoperative.  

 

Disappointed to see there is still no fix for the "Messages (Saved)" bug that takes up 3.6GB on my phone.  Deleting iMessage threads don't remove these "saved" messages for some reason.  Maybe iOS 7.2...

Apologies where apologies are due. Lambasting competitors' products is the wrong approach to preach for my preference, which are Apple products. It not only shows my true colours for not fully knowing how a competitors product works, but also shows my lame attempt at humour. Lame humour, which I must stop doing, as it derails a thread which could remain a civilised one and I simply should keep to the topic at hand.
I’d rather have a better product than a better price.
