Apple releases iOS 7.0.3 with support for iCloud Keychain, Touch ID tweaks


With iOS 7.0.3, users’ passwords and other data can be saved and synced across devices, safely and securely. iCloud Keychain will keep track of account names, passwords, and credit card numbers across all approved devices.

A new Password Generator has also been added to the Safari browser, giving unique, hard-to-guess passwords for online accounts.

iOS 7.0.3 also updates the lock screen on the iPhone 5s to delay the display of “slide to unlock” when Touch ID is in use.

In addition, the update also addresses an issue where iMessages would fail to send for some users. The update also reportedly fixes a bug that could prevent iMessage from activating.

Other changes in the update, according to Apple, include:

  • Improves system stability when using iWork apps
  • Fixes an accelerometer calibration issue
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Siri and VoiceOver to use a lower quality voice
  • Fixes a bug that could allow someone to bypass the Lock screen passcode
  • Enhances the Reduce Motion setting to minimize both motion and animation
  • Fixes an issue that could cause VoiceOver input to be too sensitive
  • Updates the Bold Text setting to also change dial pad text
  • Fixes an issue that could cause supervised devices to become un-supervized when updating software

The update is available for iPad generations two through four, the iPad mini, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, and the fifth-generation iPod touch.
