Apple has rolled out a software update to fix a number of early bugs in its latest iOS 7 mobile operating system. The fix is for the iPhone 5S and 5C, which were both released last week.
A push notification for the update appeared on V3's iPhone 5C review unit on Sunday, just days after iOS 7's 18 September release. Apple merely stated that the update, "contains bug fixes and improvements".
At the time of publishing Apple had not responded to V3's request for comment on which bugs iOS 7.0.1 fixes.
Apple released iOS 7 as a software update for the iPhone 4, 4S and 5 and iPad 2 and above, two days before the release of its latest iPhone 5S and 5C smartphones. The iPhone 5S is the latest top-end smartphone from Apple and features a number of technical and software upgrades. These include a new A7 chip and Touch ID fingerprint scanner. The iPhone 5S proved a hit with consumers, selling out hours after its launch.
Apple is currently expected to release a more robust iOS 7.1 update during an unconfirmed October event. Apple is also expected to unveil new iPads and Mac computers at the event, although none of this has been confirmed by the company.
The iPhone 5C is the first mid-range, plastic smartphone from Apple. Aside from its colourful chassis, the 5C has close to identical technical specifications to Apple's previous flagship smartphone, the iPhone 5. For more on the iPhone 5C read V3's hands-on review.
Check back with V3 later for full reviews of the iPhone 5S and 5C.
