  • Minor delay when opening apps on iPhone 7
  • 3D Touch cursor works intermittently on keyboard
  • (Recurring) Calculator operator buttons lag. e.g. quickly tap 1 + 2 + 3. It will come out as 1 + 23 because the + is still disabled after its first tap.

Other

It had been released at least four minutes earlier than usual, that was the time when I checked for an update.

App store icon is correct in Settings now too. And Done/back and forward icons are no longer overlapping into the status bar when editing a screen shot taken in an app (aka not the homescreen).
