Content of v7.1.1 update unknown
Apple is preparing an immediate follow-up to iOS 7.1 in the form of v7.1.1, according to web traffic data from 9to5Mac. The site says that it has received "numerous" hits from v7.1.1 devices operating in areas around Apple's Cupertino campus. It's not clear when the update will go live, or what it will contain, but the version number suggests that it should arrive relatively soon and mostly contain bugfixes.
Hits are meanwhile said to be increasing from devices running iOS 8 or OS X 10.10, indicating more intense development. One or both should be revealed at this June's WWDC in San Francisco. iOS 8 is expected to include a new health-tracking app, Healthbook, as well as major improvements to Maps, above all the return of public transit directions. Less is known about OS X 10.10 -- codenamed Syrah -- but it may switch to a new aesthetic.
