iOS 7.0.3 Launched After iPad Air Announcement

/ 3 years ago


Apple is once again fixing its new iOS 7 bugs with today’s iOS 7.0.3 update, whether or not you’re ordering that newly announced iPad Air or the high-resolution iPad mini 2 with Retina display. The company didn’t actually mention iOS 7.0.3 during the unveiling of its new, slimmer tablet, but it and all iOS 7 compatible devices can download the 92.8MB update over a WiFi network.

At the top of the iOS 7.0.3 features list is support for iCloud Keychain, which is able to store usernames, passwords and credit card numbers that web users always forget. There’s also a password generator so Safari can suggest unique, hard-to-guess passwords for the  unimaginative out there. iCloud Keychain can now be used across multiple Apple devices, including machines running OS X Mavericks, which was announced as a free download today.

The full iOS 7.0.3 release notes are listed below:

  • Adds iCloud Keychain to keep track of your account names, passwords, and credit card numbers across all your approved devices
