Fixes the lockscreen exploit and adds a greek keyboard. No other changes.

Looks like it's a tiny 20MB download (on my 4S at least).

 

Nice to see they patched the lockscreen exploit so quickly.

Agreed! Another reason I'll continue to use it over Android :)

Google fixes Android just as fast.  OEMs simply don't get it out there as fast, and carriers also cause a problem.

 

Apple has a far superior update system.

The fast updates are useless to anyone using a device that can't access the update straight away, but yes Google is fast to solve problems for Nexus / Google edition devices.

This. Carriers are the worst. Still waiting for the GDR2/Amber update for my Lumia 920. It's been what, 2, maybe 3 months now?

 

I downloaded the update for iOS 7 about 2 minutes after Apple published it.

FYI iPad still has choppy animation for five finger pinch and is slow to change wallpapers.

 

They're about the only bugs I've noticed, so not sure if others are still present. Really does seem like a super quick security patch.

Just got it. I agree, I respect the fact that Apple keeps the devices under their control and make sure all of their customers are treated equally (don't you dare argue with that).

Google and Microsoft should take core OS updates out of the hands of carriers and OEMs. Their stuff can sit on top, but the core features of the OS should be patched using an update system that bypasses the carriers and OEMs. IMO.

 

That said, Apple has a level playing field and don't have to worry about breaking stuff in an "unintended consequences" kind of way.

I understand that carriers will have to manage all those updates on Android, due to the 4000 different Android models that have been worked on over the years. Idk about you guys, but doesn't the amount of models sort of **** you off? Because the ecosystem of Android as a whole gets to me.

Good on them for getting the update out so fast, but wasn't this reported repeatedly during the beta? I'm still not sure why this had to be released before it was fixed.
