iOS 7.1 significantly more stable than 7.0

ios-7-1-logo

The stability enhancements in iOS 7.1 are having a major effect on the number of crashes taking place on Apple’s mobile platform, according to a firm that provides analytics to developers. The firm states that the crash rate for iOS 7.1 is 1.6%, compared with roughly 2% for iOS 7, 6.1, and 6.

So perhaps iOS 7.1 took so long for a reason. Regardless, it’s good to see that Apple is making improvements in its overall platform stability.

What about you? Does Healthbook pique your interest?

utAa628

Apple is no longer signing anything below iOS 7.1 for current-generation devices, and you know what that means: You’re stuck on iOS 7.0.x if you want to keep your jailbreak. If you update to iOS 7.1, there’s no going back – at least not any time soon. But what if something happens? What if you want a fresh slate, but don’t want to lose your jailbreak? That’s why SemiRestore exists, and it’s now available for iOS 7. (more…)
