Apple starts updating devices to iOS 8.1.3
Going back several weeks now, we’ve been eagerly awaiting Apple to deliver iOS 8.1.3. Rumors suggested that the update might start heading out as early as two weeks ago, following word that Apple retail employees were helping out with some late-stage testing. But after the public release failed to materialize, we heard about an additional round of 8.1.3 betas, as Apple worked out the remaining kinks. Hopefully that fine-tuning has paid off, because it’s finally time to flip the switch on iOS 8.1.3, with Apple getting mass distribution underway this afternoon.
The download notification informs us that the release includes the standard bug fixes, performance tweaks, and stability improvements, but doesn’t go into detail – for a more complete list of 8.1.3 changes, we’re probably going to have to wait just a little longer – and we’ll update this post as we get word of specific enhancements.
But until then, you can get started with installing iOS 8.1.3 for yourself – just check for updates in your phone settings. And if you do happen to spot any interesting new features, or fixes for particularly annoying glitches, post them here in the comments to share.
Update: Important changes in 8.1.3 include a reduced dependency on available free space to install system updates, Apple ID login fixes, correcting a Spotlight bug, an iPad multi-touch fix, and the arrival of new configuration options.
