ios7Apple is just about to release the latest version of the iPhone, which will come with the latest operating system software and a new report is suggesting that the company is already testing iOS 7.1.  Smaller iOS updates are also reportedly being tested at the same time, suggesting that consumers could see an update shortly after the release of the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.  The smaller updates or iOS 7.0.1 and iOS 7.0.2, which are typically much smaller of an update and might just be a couple of minor bug fixes or security updates for the handsets.

The 18th is when Apple users saw the official version of the iOS 7 software, which will change the overall look of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users are used to from the iOS 6 software.  Apple is reportedly testing the iOS 7 updates and following reports that iOS 7 GM is crashing more than expected could be prompting the testing of the smaller updates ahead of the official release.  Apple has been working on the iOS7 software since June of this year and releasing small beta portions for testing since that time.

Developers have been getting online and showing the public what is about to come and what issues the company might be having at the same time and since the last iOS 7 release a month or so ago, some have taken to Twitter to announce that the software was crashing on the iPhone and iPad more than one would expect it to.  One online source has noticed that updates for iOS 7.1, iOS 7.0.1 and iOS 7.0.2 have appeared in the website’s analytics tools suggesting that Apple is getting around to making sure the bug fixes are going as planned.  The hits with the new software are coming from cities around the Cupertino headquarters.

Those with iOS powered devices got updated to iOS 6.0.1 last November and that was just six weeks after the initial iOS 6.0 was released to the public.  Like many  major updates, smaller bug fixes and security updates are sent out shortly after the masses get a good look at the software and find the issues and report them to Apple.  Those looking to jailbreak their iPhone would have to wait until the iOS 7.1 arrives as developers announced they will wait to release it to the public.
