Apple preps iOS 7.1.1 bug fix update; iOS 8, OS X 10.10 testing increases

“Unsurprisingly, Apple appears to be readying a bug fix update to iOS 7.1 called iOS 7.1.1,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“Numerous visits to 9to5Mac from areas surrounding Apple’s campus on devices running iOS 7.1.1 have appeared in our analytics,” Gurman reports. “The increase in views likely indicates that the bug fix update will come over-the-air to iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches in the near future.”

“iOS 7.1 was released in March with user-interface tweaks, a new calendar view, and CarPlay support,” Gurman reports. “In similar news, it appears, based on our analytics, that iOS 8 testing inside Apple has increased.”

    1. I just upgraded my 4S to a 5S after the exact same time period – 22 months. I would get a full day’s charge out of it and had to recharge it each night, which doesn’t bother me at all. What was her battery life like?

  1. Hey, MDN… speaking of hits, where have all the comments gone? The scarcity of commenters, I believe, is a direct reflection of the reality that Apple isn’t doing much of anything worth commenting on these days. Right? Except for rumors and rumors of rumors, there’s just not much there there. = post Jobs darkness.

    1. As apposed to the pre-Jobs darkness periods between Apple II and Mac, Mac and MacBook, MacBook and iMac, iMac and iPod, iPod and iPhone, iPhone and iPad?

      There is not enough time for anyone to know how Apple has changed “post Jobs”. One thing that hasn’t changed pre/post Jobs is people complaining Apple has not done anything for them lately.

    2. Hey, JAY… You’re making the traditional mistake of looking for quantity! Since you are reading MDN, you must have realized that APPLE is all about quality of products and users experiences. Right? Except for trolling and trolling there’s nothing for you here. = 0 interest.

  2. Google Analytics graphs, huh? Very interesting!

    So not only does MacDailyNews run Google software, it uses it literally to spy and collect data on everyone who visits this site. I wonder how all the anti-Google privacy-advocates who frequent this site feel about that.

      1. I was curious if there was any merit to your advice. So I made a webpage, added Google Analytics, visited in a Epic Browser, then again in Safari as a test control.

        Epic blocked basically nothing – Google Analytics detected the visit from Epic, where I was located (down to the city), what operating system (and version) I was using, what version of Flash and Java I had installed, screen resolution, and my network provider.

        The only stealthy maneuver Epic did was lie about its browser name – according to Google Analytics, it was Chrome. Because Epic is a fork of Chrome, this “stealthy maneuver” could actually be the result of Epic forgetting to change the browser name in one place.

  3. Then again, a lot of people get turned off by unnecessary pictures of a blonde woman sitting on a ball, which I’ll admit, is much preferable to seeing obviously paid advertisements for a fat, hateful bigot with a drug problem.
