Along with launching new iPads and iMac last week, Apple also announced that it would be rolling out iOS 8.1 update on Monday. Right on cue, the update has started rolling out for iPhones, iPad and iPod touch.
The iOS 8.1 update is available for devices including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 5th generation, iPad Air, iPad with Retina display, iPad mini with Retina display, iPad mini, and the iPad 2. The recently launched iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 will come preinstalled with iOS 8.1.
To update your iOS device, head over to Settings -> General -> Software Update. Alternatively, with your iOS device plugged into your computer, go to iTunes, and on the Summary Page, click on Check for Updates. The update weighs 117MB, and requires up to 2.2GB of free storage on your iOS devices. In case you don’t have that kind of free space, you can connect your device to iTunes and update it.
iOS 8.1 is the first major update since the release of iOS 8 last month. While Apple released iOS 8.0.1 update to fix a few bugs, it ended up causing issues d like call drops and TouchID failure for many users. Apple immediately released iOS 8.0.2 to fix the botched update.
