Apple releases iOS 10.1 for iPhone and iPad

Apple has officially launched iOS 10.1, the first major update to its refreshed iOS 10 operating system.

The new software comes with a string of minor bug fixes and tweaks. However, the biggest feature is unquestionably the Portrait mode designed for the iPhone 7 Plus.

This camera function allows owners of Apple’s top–end smartphone to utilise the dual screen camera system to create sharp images of people and objects while blurring the background.

Apple has teased the feature, which uses the device’s wide angle lens to shoot a depth of field map while the telephoto lens captures the main subject, for months. However, it was not ready to launch as part of iOS 10 in September.

The feature is likely to boost sales of the iPhone 7 Plus, which analysts suggest are already healthy thanks to the demise of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, its main rival.

Other features include bug fixes for Messages, stopping the app opening up to a blank white screen and sorting out an error which caused contacts to be displayed incorrectly.

You can download iOS 10.1 for your iPhone or iPad now.
