Apple iOS 7.0.3 update could land next week, report claims

Apple is seemingly wasting no time in wiping out the bugs associated with its new, revamped iOS 7 operating system, according to reports on Tuesday.

Less than a week after pushing out iOS 7.0.2 to users, Boy Genius Report believes that iOS 7.0.3 is already set for a public appearance.

The report claims this minor update has already been pushed to Apple employees and its partners, meaning a general release is likely to arrive after the weekend.

If BGR’s source proves reliable, the update would probably take care of some of the issues being experienced by iPhone and iPad users since the September 18 roll out.

iOS 7.0.2 fixed a bug that allowed the lock screen passcode to be by-passed by a complex series of button pushes, but other problems endure.

Just yesterday reports outlined an issue with sending SMS messages via the company’s in-house iMessage platform, while the have been multiple complaints about diminished battery life since upgrading to iOS 7.

Regardless of what iOS 7.0.3 brings to the table, there are unlikely to be any new features of note. Apple is widely expected to release iOS 7.1 in October when it rolls out a new range of iPad and iPad mini tablets.

We’ll let you know as soon as the update, which will be available to download over the air or by tethering an iOS device to a computer rocking the iTunes software, arrives.
