Apple iOS 8.1 now official, will be seeded on Monday
Apple kicked off their event by officially announcing the latest iteration of its mobile platform, iOS 8.1, which features a few new improvements over its predecessor.
In addition to bug fixes and optimizations that are usually associated with these updates, Apple adds a few new software add-ons in the mix which include Continuity (an app that allows users to respond to messages on their Mac running on OS X Yosemite), Apple Pay and Secure Elements which is primarily designed for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The new software build will also include the return of “Camera Roll” which was axed during the iOS 8 update. But not only did Apple re-introduced Camera Roll, the company also revamped by adding a new app called iCloud Photo Library (Beta) which serves as backup or main storage option for pictures.
The new iOS 8.1 will be available for download to all supported Apple devices (see list below) through iTunes or via Over-The-Air update starting on Monday (or Tuesday in our local time).
All iPhones starting from iPhone 4S
All iPads besides the first gen
5th-Gen iPod Touch and later
