The public release of Apple’s iOS 7.1 could just just a few weeks away, with reports claiming the company has no plans to release more beta versions of the software to developers.
BGR reports the company’s beta testing of the first major update to the revamped OS is complete after five beta versions, with only a Gold Master version to arrive before it becomes available to consumers.
According to the site’s source, Apple plans to drop iOS 7.1 in early March, which ties into previous speculation.
Months in the making
iOS 7.1 has been almost five months in the making and will offer some visual refinements and potentially introduce a few new features, such as iOS in the Car.
The company also hopes the update will fix the random reboots, app crashes, and general sluggishness experienced by some users since the iOS 7 update fell in September 2013.
It has not yet been suggested that the Apple plans to address the startling drop-off in battery life experienced by older iPhone owners since upgrading from iOS 6.
