Important Update :

iOS 7.1.1 IPSW Download Now Available for all iOS 7 supported devices with critical bug fix with immediate download recommendation from Apple .

The full change log for iOS 7.1 can be seen below but included are changes to Siri, iTunes Radio, changes to Reduce Motion, keyboard enhancements and improvements to Touch ID’s recognition process.

You can download iOS 7.1 in one of 3 ways although, if you have a jailbroken device, the advice is to hold off on updating. iOS 7.1 patches the exploits used in Evasi0n 7, thus rendering the jailbreak useless until Evad3rs come up with a new utility.
