Apple releases iOS 7.1.1 with improvements to Touch ID, keyboard - Page 2

Hmm, 1.26GB for my iPhone. Are delta's only available over cellular? Not that it matters to me, but sometimes I read people complaining about size...

 

Same problem here. And WHY are iTunes-based updates so slow to download when compared to direct iPhone OTA downloads? Incredible.

Touch ID improvement already? Has it been just a month?
Doesn't anyone over there know what they're doing?

Funny, because they didn't issue any updates you'd also claim Apple didn't know what they were doing.

Well, the more improvement, the better.

After so many decades, we are still finding improvements in video playback. Doesn't mean the industry are ignorant in this area. It just means they are working actively in said area.

It can be speed, space, feature, security, and other enhancements.

Wake me when they get Swiftkey. Instead of spending more on dividends and buybacks, why not go out and just buy Swiftkey and give us a real keyboard...? The iOS keyboard is a total relic.

Oooo... snappier!

It hasn't done it to me before!

Also, Touch ID is blazing fast with this update. It was fast with 7.1, though

But, there is one thing that annoys me with it, but it's not actually its fault.

I almost never used passwords before. On my Nexus S I didn't even use a lock screen : a press on the wake button would show me the home screen directly. With touch ID when I receive notifications I can't just swipe the notification and get to it, I need to authenticate first. Same thing goes when I ask some things to Siri and it tells me that I need to unlock first.
Real first world problems!
Yeah that's true

Touch ID is by far the best implementation of a fingerprint sensor on any consumer device (look at the fail that is the S5 implementation as an example), and for most people Touch ID works perfectly (at least everyone I know)- and Apple is doing it's best to continuously and actively improve it for the small percentage that are having issues- but no you're right, nobody there has any clue what they're doing. You should go over there and show them how it's done. 

 

I've stopped being stunned by the self-entitled, ignorant, unappreciative, perspective-lacking, knee-jerk reactive armchair critics that post on the internet. It takes a special kind of person to claim Apple "doesn't know what it's doing" with Touch ID, when in the real world all evidence points towards the fact that its the ONLY company that knows what its doing in the consumer fingerprint biometrics field.

Sometimes can't answer phone calls from Lock screen. Not sure if it's the OS where Slide to Unlock doesn't.

Dog forbid they make improvements.

I get the long wait before it loads too. It only sends a few megabytes over the network though, and the progress "pie" is only about 1/3 the way through by the time the network has quietened. As previously mentioned, the library loads almost instantly on the AppleTV - which in my case has a slower connection to iTunes (N WiFi vs 100mbps Ethernet).

That annoys me too. For some simple things such as a Siri web search, a simple sandboxed version of Safari with no personal info in would be good. What annoys me more though, is when you use your iPhone and think of something else you needed to use it for a couple of seconds later; it asks for your fingerprint again. It needs a 10 second or so grace period before requiring your print. Or better still, the ability to change the idle interval for requiring your fingerprint, in the same fashion that you can set 1/5/10/30 mins before you're asked for your passcode again.

26.0 MB on my Aus 5S but why do I need to have Wi-Fi to download 26.0 MB? :(

Ethernet? Certainly not to your iPhone; for that device I would presume WiFi...

My iPhone now simply times out when loading the Shared iTunes from my Mac. Then the phone falls asleep and when I wake it it doesn't even display the Mac anymore. Not that it matters (to me), but it certainly isn't working. And a setup like this I can understand it being used by some: you get to control your Mac's iTunes from your phone. Though you can already do that from the Remote app. And that one loads the library with all playlists instantly. Weird.

Normally we get the a few "zzzz" posts on updates like these, so I like the "snappier" from Macky the Macky.

But maybe you'd prefer a:

I'm sorry but THIS TIME, touch ID is indeed snappier, and I'm sure I'm not dreaming it. It was super fast before, but now I don't even need to leave my finger on it for a quarter second. I should make a video to show how fast it is!

I have had this happen so many times over the years and it never gets fixed. Unbelievable.

I know, but that was not my point:

 

1 - why are iTunes-based updates always full downloads?

 

2 - why are transfer rates so slow on iTunes compared to OTA?

Because iTunes can’t delta update.

Haven’t been in my experience.

did the above  reset thing 3 times, restore from backup 2  times,  turned off everything as per several "genius" blogs, two apple reps instructions, was told to turn off "find my iPhone" which i didn't like to do--but did anyway.  3 calls and all this my wife wanted a functioning phone.   third call to apple they pulled the trigger

NOW

works like a charm my wife can actually use it

 

but thanks for the insight

I had the problem of a broken Touch ID after upgrading to iOS 7.1. I could only hope that Apple soon fixes it through a software update. And they did. iOS 7.1.1 update has made the Touch ID work as a charm again! So thanks Apple! And, though early to say, battery life seems to be longer than before.
