Alongside new iPads and Macs, Apple on Tuesday quietly released an iOS update that brings new features and fixes others.
iOS 7.0.3, which went out as a free update today, brings back iCloud Keychain -- a feature that was originally slated to launch with iOS 7, but did not make it into the final release.
iCloud Keychain stores information like log-ins and credit card information synced up and available between devices. That comes with a new feature in Safari for iOS that can generate complex passwords.
Alongside the new feature, Apple also beefed up an older one that disabled some of the snazzy new visual effects in iOS 7. That includes the parallax shifting that occurs while users move their device around, as well as the animations that have app icons fall down onto the screen every time the device is unlocked.
Those animations were, who found them to be dizzying. The new option ditches the zooming between apps and other system menus, in favor of a simpler cross fade effect.
Other fixes include a tweak to the lock screen that delays when it pops up the "slide to unlock" language for iPhone 5S users with the Touch ID system enabled, as well as bringing back an option to search from the Web and Wikipedia from within the built-in Spotlight search tool.
iOS was was released to users last month. Prior updates focused on ironing out some early kinks,that allowed users to unlock devices without a passcode.
