Lovely iPad Rumor of the Day: iOS 7.1 Out Any Day Now, to Support iTunes Festival App

iTunes Festival SXSW

Well here’s a lovely little iPad rumor to consider this week – iOS 7.1 is said to be set for release any day now. Here’s the reason given by John Gruber at Daring Fireball:

Apple’s first iTunes Festival in the U.S. starts a week from today at SXSW in Austin. Apple is going to stream the performances to iOS devices using an app, but I’ve heard from a little birdie that the app requires iOS 7.1 (which explains why the app isn’t out yet). That means iOS 7.1 should ship any day now.

These shows start next Tuesday, March 11, right here in Austin. So perhaps a iOS 7.1 release on Friday?

iOS 7.1 is rumored to bring fixes for some of the crashing bugs and frequent Springboard resets that have plagued iOS 7 since its release.

I don’t fully understand why the iTunes Festival app requires an iOS update, as it has always offered a live stream plus highlights videos in the past as far as I can recall – but I’ll be quite happy if this rumor proves true and the app helps to push out the iOS 7.1 release.
