    POOF It's gone! I just looked at my require passcode also and it said Immediately and I didn't update yet.

    So, I guess this was changed either with the last update or some time ago.

    I'm mid-install right now. :D

    I don't see the lack of screen lock options as a big deal as long as we have Touch ID. And as a former BlackBerry user I've learned the importance of securing your phone. The setting for 7.1 is pretty much how I have mine set now with 7.0.6 anyway.

    Took forever for my download, but installing now. Not sure why, but I didn't jump in on the previous beta. Hoping this is significantly more stable than iOS 7.0.4. Safari gave me a send-off crash right before upgrading.

    I see your point. I just figured out how to make the timed options come back: you have to remove all of your stored fingerprints (i.e. you disable Touch ID altogether). I guess Apple feels that the swiftness of Touch ID makes the "convenience" of leaving your phone unlocked, even for one minute, obsolete. I can't say I disagree.

    About time. I wouldn't consider a Safari crash every day since September 2013 occasional.

    I feel sorry for all of you experiencing all these Safari crashes. I don't know why I seem to be one of the few lucky ones in this regard. Clean living, I guess.

    You used to have Safari crashes almost daily in every version of 7.x prior to 7.0.6, and you still have one weekly on 7.0.6, right?

    As someone with major stability/stock app crashing problems and fade issues on the fingerprint scanner on every stock version of 7.x up to this point, I'm going to give up my jailbreak and update my 5s. I have a jailbroken iPhone 5 on 7.0.6 to fall back to if I miss the jailbreak too much. Looking forward to the fix for stock apps crashing (specifically Safari), improved Touch ID reliability, the toned down the green call bar with a more mature shade of green, manual Siri, 3D keyboard and list view in the Calendar app.

    Not even that often, by my count. In any case, I could live with an average of one Safari crash per week if it meant keeping my jailbreak.

    I was having more crashes before I jailbroke (which is probably a coincidence), but now they're few and far between.

    iOS 7.1 must be special... Apple has given it its own official website. I think this is a first for a non-major (x.0) version of iOS.

    What do you mean by "manual Safari"?

    Oops, that was a typo. I meant manual Siri.

    I like the "reduce white point". It's a little easier on my eyes.

    I have to say, my phone is much snappier then it's ever been with this update. I went ahead and updated because my jailbreak just was so laggy and unpredictable. Everything I do now all the way down to typing seems much more responsive. Plus not a single crash yet! (Knock on wood it's only been a few hours).

    There's one bug that hasn't been fixed yet... the saving of images with a transparent background. It's still doing exactly what it was doing before, as pointed out by @Europa ...

    Whew,
    Almost locked myself into non JB-ability.

    Was working on an iPad restore last night, hard connected to Mac Mini, and had inadvertently put my 7.0.6 iPhone 5 into recovery mode w/Tinyumbrella via WiFi. Did not even know that was possible.

    MrsSnowtrooper is downloading 7.1 for her device now.....
