iOS 7.1 Release Coming Soon, Software Spotted in Apple Web Logs

Apple hasn't even officially rolled out iOS 7 and future iterations of the software have already been spotted in Apple's web logs.

iOS 7.0.1, 7.0.2 and iOS 7.1 have all showed up in the company's web logs with visitors running the operating system versions coming from IPs associated with Apple. Devices running iOS 8 also were spotted at the very end of Aug.

iOS 7.0.1 and iOS 7.0.2 will most likely bring minor bug fixes to the software. iOS 7.1 is a newer build that could bring some new features to the operating system.

iOS 7.0.1 started showing up in the company's logs in early August and has been increasing significantly since that time, according to MacRumors. iOS 7.0.2 began appearing more recently. iOS 7.1 has been seen the least out of the three.

However, the prevalence of all of the future operating systems among visits from Apple's networks remains very low, which shows that widespread testing has not begun within Apple.

The iOS 7 release date is set for Sept. 18, according to announcement made by Apple at its media event last week.

The software will be compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad mini, iPad 3, iPad 4, and the iPod Touch 5th-Generation.

Apple announced iOS 7 at WWDC earlier this year.

The new software will come with many new features along with a completely redesigned layout with fresh fonts and new templates. The newly designed interface will come with flat icons and a 3D effect that will make the wallpaper appear to be some distance behind the icons.

The notification menu will also be updated as users will access it by pulling it down. It can track what activity you are doing such as playing music and provides users with easy access to their settings and the new features called AirPlay and AirDrop.
