Apple iOS 7.1 now seeding to iDevices, CarPlay in tow

As expected, Apple has released iOS 7.1 update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

The user interface changes are most noticeable and include tweaks to the phone dialer and the power off area, where Apple has opted for round UI elements. Additionally, the accept and decline buttons in the incoming call have also been tweaked, along with the repeat and shuffle icons in the Music player.
Under iOS 7.1 user can also disable the parallax effect when selecting a custom image for a wallpaper. There are additional minor improvements to the keyboard with the delete and shift keys coming out more prominent now.

Apple has fixed the random reboots bug, which many have been experience. Hopefully, the problem is now gone for good.
The iOS 7.1 update also includes support for the company's new CarPlay feature, which allows you to access your phone through your car via voice commands. Siri is at the core of this feature and allows drivers to dictate messages or manage their music without ever touching their iPhone.
Speaking of music, iTunes Radio is also updated in iOS 7.1. The new additions are featured station search, quickly create stations based on previous searches as well as quick iTunes Match subscription directly from the phone.
Now, head over to your iOS device and get iOS 7.1, which is already seeding.
