Washington: Apple Inc has rolled out the much-anticipated iOS7.1 update that includes some bug fixes, an improved user interface and overhauled Notification Center, as per news reports.

It is now available as a free download over-the-air on iOS 7 devices or via iTunes.

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.

Users can now clear notifications more accurately, thanks to the changes in the Notification Center.

Bug fixes related to 'random reboots' that iPhone 5S, iPad mini with Retina display, and iPad Air users had been experiencing, have been made. Improvisation in the TouchID issues has also been done, enabling faster and more accurate recognition.

Another major change is the manual setting for Siri. If the home button is held down for longer, Siri would listen for longer, which is particularly useful while dictating calendar events. Users can also subscribe to iTunes Match directly from the phone for ad-free listening to iTunes Radio.

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