Apple has just seeded the latest bug-fix update for iOS 7 via iOS 7.0.3. The new update brings several feature enhancements such as support for iCloud Keychain as well as bug-fixes over its previous release (iOS 7.0.2) such as fixes for iMessage activation issues, motion sensor calibration errors, Lock Screen security bug, battery drainage and other performance issues.

The complete list of enhancements and fixes ported into the new iOS 7.0.3 firmware is given below:

- 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

“@iphonesteven If you’ve already lost the JB by upgrading to 7.x, then yep it’s fine to go from 7.0.x to 7.0.3.

“7.0.3′s lock screen fixes won’t impact the JB (unless Apple’s holding back here, hah! http://lists.apple.com/archives/security-announce/2013/Oct/msg00002.html … )”

This is contrary to earlier expectations that the new update could block the exploits unearthed in iOS 7 and render them useless for the upcoming jailbreak. In other words, the jailbreak exploits will still be functional after you have installed the new iOS 7.0.3 update.
