Apple has just launched the iOS 7.0.3 update for all supported iDevices. The release is rather rich in bug fixes but it also brings a few new features.

As for the bugfixes, the most important ones include fixing some iMessage activation problems, and also resolving the notorious accelerometer issue and putting to sleep the recently discovered ways to bypass the Lock screen passcode (a previous bug of this kind was fixed with iOS 7.0.2, too).

Here is the full changelog, in case that image up there is hard to read.

iOS 7.0.3 changelog

  • Adds iCloud Keychain to keep track of your account names, passwords, and credit card numbers across all your approved devices
  • Adds Password Generator so Safari can suggest unique, hard-to-guess passwords for your online accounts
  • Updates lock screen to delay display of "slide to unlock" when Touch ID is in use
  • Adds back the ability to search the web and Wikipedia from Spotlight search
  • Fixes an issue where iMessage failed to send for some users
  • Fixes a bug that could prevent iMessage from activating
  • Improves system stability when using iWork apps
  • Fixes an accelerometer calibration issue
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Siri and VoiceOver to use a lower quality voice
  • Fixes a bug that could allow someone to bypass the Lock screen passcode
  • Enhances the Reduce Motion setting to minimize both motion and animation
  • Fixes an issue that could cause VoiceOver input to be too sensitive
  • Updates the Bold Text setting to also change dial pad text
  • Fixes an issue that could cause supervised devices to become un-supervised when updating software

Upgraded to iOS 7.0.3 but iTunes 11.1.x still cannot complete the last step of the Sync process, "Waiting for changes to be applied". It just spins until it times out. 95% of my music and books are gone or don't work from my iPhone 5 ...
