ios 7 multi-tasking

Apple’s much–trailed update to iOS, iOS 7.1, looks likely to land on iPhones and iPads in March. That’s the word from 9to5mac, which claims it has spoken to ‘reliable sources’ about the launch.

The update won’t change the operating system's interface much. So if you were among those who experienced motion sickness when Apple introduced iOS 7's whizzy animations last year, don't expect this platform bump to bring you any relief.

On the plus side, though, users will see small, but very welcome changes in the phone and calendar applications. Chatter on Apple messageboards suggests the iFaithful feel these were ripe for an overhaul.

Speed tweaks and bug fixes for an altogether smoother smartphone experience are likely to complete the picture.

Apple is said to be readying its next major update, iOS 8, for launch in the autumn.

Recent rumours have centred on a new Healthbook app, which is said to tie in with the company’s forthcoming iWatch, offering fitness and health tracking smarts.
