Roughly two weeks after releasing the iOS 8.1 update, the Cupertino-based company has seeded iOS 8.1.1 to developers, 9To5Macreports. The build number of the beta is 12B432, and the rollout comes hours after the company released the first beta of OS X Yosemite 10.10.1.
Among improvements that are still being evaluated, the iOS 8.1.1 improves the stability and performance for iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S, two of the older devices that support the operating system. It is also expected to remove the blood glucose tracking feature from the Health app, as is was recently discovered incompatible with standard measurement units in many countries.
Since iOS 8 release in September, the company has rolled out several patch updates. The first patch update, iOS 8.0.1 which arrived days after the iOS 8 release botched the cellular connectivity and disabled the Touch ID sensor. The company rectified the bugs with iOS 8.0.2 update.
The iOS 8.1 update, which arrived last month brought many new features including network selection option that lets users choose between 2G, 3G and 4G LTE data connections. The update also brought support for mobile payment option Apple Pay, Continuity, iCloud Photo Library, and marked the return of the Camera Roll.
