Apple just released iOS 7.1.1 and, just like it did with part of iOS 7.1, Apple made some changes that should help continue to improve the performance of Touch ID.

It’s unclear what specifically changed in this launch — we’re sure some digging will reveal that later — but the company said it did make “further improvements to Touch ID fingerprint recognition.” Hopefully that means it fails less.

Other fixes in iOS 7.1.1 include a bug that “could impact keyboard responsiveness” and an “issue when using Bluetooth keyboards with VoiceOver enabled.” You should see the over-the-air update inside settings now.
