iOS 7.1.3 Release Date Set On August 2014: Battery Drain Issues, Calendar Glitches And Other Major Bug Fixes And Speed Boost Promised By Apple

With the Apple iOS 8 just around the corner, it’s time to bid farewell to the iOS 7. However, before we do so, Apple has another surprise for us – the iOS 7.1.3. This is most likely to be Apple iOS 7’s last version and is rumored to be unveiled sometime in August this year.

The iOS 7.1.3 release date has been confirmed and it would arrive sometime this August 2014! What can you expect on this latest update?

iOS 7.1.3 update

The iOS 8 software is preparing for release for mobile devices and so apple is gearing to introduce the last updates to the market for iOS 7. First off, people do not seem too happy with the iOS 7.1.2 update which was thought to be the latest and final version, however, there are still bugs disturbing the update. These would be for devices like iPhone and iPad. According to various reports on Reddit, it seems that people are installing the iOS 7.1.2 and the device freezes midway. Some of the devices are shutting down altogether during the process which causes them to reboot and begin the process all over again. There were other reports of issues with the camera apps, iMessages and VPN’s.

The iOS 7.1.2 causes greater battery consumption, another glitch that the iOS 7.1.3 is expected to address. “We are currently waiting to check-on Apple’s initiative to cater to the deficiencies presented by the iOS 7.1.2. Some of our readers had complained about this updated draining up the batteries while our review team faced similar problems too” a reputed online magazine published.

The iOS 8 Beta is currently available, even though it cannot be compared to the full version, when it comes to general specifications. You need a little more patience in order to avail the full version.

The release date for the final update has been slated for sometime this August, but no exact date has been given. Of course, it remains to be seen whether the iOS 7.1.3 update will solve the issues of battery drain and booting which are the most pressing at the moment for Apple clientele but at least, they do not have the problem of getting delayed updates to the market the same way that Android has had for the KitKat updates as they are seriously behind schedule.

Exit the iTunes App

By exiting iTunes, you’ll ensure that your jailbreaking job is easy, dependable and pleasant. Since the iTunes application has the ability to interfere with a software tool’s capacity to get the job done right, it’s vital to quit iTunes. 

 Run the Installer

You’ll need to visit the directory where you stashed your evasi0n7  file. You may find this installer via your personal computer’s administrative settings.

 Connect your iPhone to your Computer

Link your smart phone to your personal computer. You may do this easily by using a USB cable. To make this step happen, attach one end of the cable to your cell phone, and then attach the other end to the USB port of your PC.

 Let your PC Detect your Device

Your home computer should detect your iPhone without any prompting from you. Once your PC detects the Apple smart phone, click the button that initiates the jailbreak procedure.

 Wait While the Software Tool Initializes

It’s time to sit back and relax, as your chosen software tool initializes. You will not need to do anything while this is happening. Your software program will also reboot your iPhone. So, wait until you receive a message that confirms that action. Once you get this message, confirm the action and then tap the command3. This will trigger the unlocking process.

Complete the Process

During the final step, the jailbreaking process will be completed. The entire process should happen automatically. When you receive a “done” message, you will probably also spot a logo for Evasi0n. In addition, you may view a Cydia option.
