Apple have released an update to iOS 7 that supports new features in OS X Mavericks, fixes some bugs and provides users with even more control over the parallax effect that is allegedly causing 'motion sickness'.

iOS 7.0.3 - iPhone 5S Gold

One of the most useful updates in iOS 7.0.3 is support for iCloud keychain, a new feature in OS X Mavericks that allows you to share your passwords between your devices. The feature can also save credit card numbers and generate random passwords with a tap.

The update fixes a few bugs, including the persistent iMessage delivery issues that arise with every new iOS update. It also addresses some issues with Siri, iWork and the accelerometer. The change log outlined that Apple have 'fixed a bug that could allow someone to bypass the Lock screen passcode' - though this was similar to a fix patched in the previous update.

iOS 7.0.3 brings updates focused on the new iPhone 5S and the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. The phone will now delay showing the "Slide to Unlock" icon on the lock screen so users don't forget that they can simply use your finger to unlock the phone.

The update adds more controls in the settings to allow users to minimise the motion and animations in iOS 7 after many users have complained about the new animations used when navigating between apps and folders.
