iOS 7.0.3 is released with fixes for iMessage, accelerometer bugs

Apple has pushed iOS 7.0.3 to iOS devices everywhere

If other recent Apple announcements weren't enough to get your head in a spin, Apple has pushed iOS 7.0.3 to iOS devices everywhere. The update adds support for iCloud Keychain and should provide two big fixes: both to the accelerometer calibration issue some users were seeing and recent iMessage bugs.

In addition, the update addresses several major complaints with iOS 7 and fixes bugs. For starters, the lock screen will now hold off on displaying "slide to unlock" when Touch ID is in use; Wikipedia and Web search have both been re-added to Spotlight; and the Reduce Motion option in Accessibility now minimizes both animation and motion.

On the bug side of the equation, system stability with iWork is improved; an issue with Siri and VoiceOver using lower-quality voices has been addressed; a Lock screen bypass has been patched; and several bugs with VoiceOver, Bold Text, and supervising software have been fixed.

The update is available via the Software Update screen in Settings > General on your iOS device running iOS 7 or later. You can view the update's security content via Apple's website.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
