iOS 7.0.1 for iPhone 5S and 5C lands hot on the heels of iOS 7

ios-7-logo.pngiOS 7 finally finished downloading to your Apple device of choice? Great, then you’ll be delighted to hear that Apple already have iOS 7.0.1 ready to download and update your device too!

The update’s a fair bit smaller than the sizeable iOS 7 overhaul that launched this week and was masterminded by Apple’s Jony Ive, weighing in at just 13.8MB. Hopefully that’ll go some way towards easing the server strain that saw many iOS users wait hours to complete their initial iOS 7 upgrades.

Seemingly only rolling out to iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C owners initially (our iPad Mini still hasn’t got the iOS 7.0.1 download prompt), the upgrade promises a number of “bug fixes and improvements”, top of the list of which is better support for the Touch ID fingerprint scanner in the App Store.

We’ll keep you posted as to any new findings the update brings, and when to expect to see it roll out to older devices.
