Included in 7.0.3 are a host of bug fixes, including one for a nasty glitch that was causing many iMessage users to pull their hair out. iCloud Keychain has also been added back to iOS 7 after its sudden removal during the beta process. Today’s update also fixes a software bug involving the iPhone’s accelerometer that got a lot of attention for causing incorrect measurements with the iPhone 5s.
