Apple has released iOS 7.0.3, the latest software update that brings along iCloud Keychain and several bug fixes.

The technology giant had unveiled its next-generation iPads - the iPad Air and the iPad mini 2 - on Tuesday, October 22, which will come running on the latest iOS 7.0.3.

The latest iOS 7.0.3 software update will bring along iCloud Keychain, which the company had announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June this year. The iCloud Keychain is believed to be a replacement to the MobileMe Keychain syncing function, which Apple removed from iCloud in 2011.

iCloud Keychain functions as a secure database that allows a user to store important personal details such as website login passwords, Wi-Fi passwords, credit or debit card management and other relevant account data. iCloud Keychain will allow users to access and auto-fill on webpages when required.

Moreover, iCloud Keychain also suggests the users with new longer and more secure passwords. iCloud Keychain is only available on Apple platforms and can only be used when a user is inside a browser. iCloud Keychain will work only with Safari browser on iOS 7.0.3 and with OS X Mavericks or later.

iOS 7.0.3 software update also brings along several bug fixes to iDevices. The update fixes some iMessage bugs that barred messages from being sent and received. The update also excludes a VoiceOver problem that affected Siri.

The latest update also fixes an accelerometer calibration issue and also repairs a lock screen bug.

The change log also says that iOS 7.0.3 software update "fixes an issue that could cause supervised devices to become un-supervised when updating software."

The iOS 7.0.3 software update also adds Password Generator so that Safari can suggest "unique" and "hard-to-guess" passwords to a user. The new software patch also updates lock screen to delay display of "slide to unlock" when TouchID is in use.

The software update also brings back the ability to search Wikipedia and the web from the Spotlight search.
