Along with the release of iOS 7.1, Apple on Monday issued updates for a number of its iOS applications, with Remote, GarageBand, Logic Remote, and Podcasts all receiving attention:

  • Remote version 4.2 allows users to control iTunes Radio on their Apple TV. It also lets users browse purchased movies and TV shows in the app and play them on their Apple TV.
  • Logic Remote version 1.0.4 is also available, and fixes an issue that prevented Scale Modes and Chord Strips from updating to the current project key.
  • Podcasts version 2.0.2 resolves an issue where the 15-second skip buttons may not appear on the lock screen when used with iOS 7.1.
  • GarageBand version 2.0.1 is also available on the App Store, improving stability and addressing bugs that Apple characterized as minor.

Apple’s iOS 7.1 update seems killed the most useful bug ever to grace a mobile operating system. If you choose to update your device to 7.1 you’ll no longer be able to use nested folders. Nested folders (folders-within-folders) were a long-standing bug that Apple conveniently ignored for some time.

Following a lengthy beta testing period, Apple today released iOS 7.1 to the public, marking the first major update to iOS 7 since its September release. The update includes much-needed improvements to the Touch ID fingerprint recognition system built-in to the iPhone 5s, an update for a home screen crashing issue, and it brings CarPlay support, which was first unveiled by Apple last week.

A multitude of minor improvements to enhance the performance of the operating system have also been bundled into the update, such as new bounce animations in Control Center, more prominent buttons in the Music app, and a new event list view within the Calendar app. Full release notes are as follows:
