Apple has reportedly launched iOS 7.1 update that includes some bug fixes, an improved user interface and overhauled Notification Center.

The long-awaited update shows some of the main visual changes in the phone dialer and power off features, which now have more rounded UI elements, like a separate decline and accept button below floating circular icons for the Remind Me and Message options.

According to The Verge, the update has brought in tweaks to the music app showing prominent repeat and shuffle icons, and the option to disable wallpaper motion when selecting an image.

Improvements have also been made to the keyboard interface, making the shift and delete keys easier to see.

However, the best visual tweak is that of the Notification Center, which now allows users to clear notifications more accurately.

The tech giant has also fixed the 'random reboots' bug that iPhone 5S, iPad mini with Retina display, and iPad Air users had been experiencing, apart from fixing the TouchID issues, making recognition faster and more accurate.

The report said that Apple has also added a new CarPlay feature, which aims to provide 'eyes-free' experience with the use of Siri voice commands to respond to incoming calls, dictate text messages, or access music library from a vehicle.

Other changes include an adjustment to how Siri is triggered and if the home button is held down for longer, Siri would listen for longer, which is particularly useful while dictating calendar events.
