Apple outs iOS 8.1.1; Makes your iPhone 4S and iPad 2 perform faster

Apple has just released an update to its iOS 8. The version 8.1.1 specifically targets the older Apple products such as the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 to make them perform faster.


After the rollout of the iOS 8, many users experienced that installing it on an older iPhone or iPad made their devices sluggish due to the software requiring faster processing speed and the like – it’s basically like putting the energy of a kid inside an old man’s body.


Apple recognized this and made them push this 8.1.1 update that includes “bug fixes, increased stability and performance improvements for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.”

It’s nice of Apple to still come out with updates for their older models and aren’t just using their resources on new phones and tablets. So if you’re using one or both these devices be sure to get the latest OS version to give that old player a bump in performance. You can do so manually by going to Settings > General > Software Update.

Hope this helps!

    This is I think one of the things I like with Apple. Care is still somehow given to its “legacy devices”.

    I’m quite surprised I’m back to the speed of 7.1.2 after the update! Pretty small too sized too!

      Maam Ailyn, kasali na po sa IOS 8.1.1 and lahat iphone above iphone 4S na ni release ( gaya ng Iphone 5 nyo po). Isaksak nyo lang po sa PC na may latest ITUNES at internet then update).Advise ko lang po na wag mag update kung naka jailbreak kayo kasi mawawala po yun.

      Hindi po katulad ng Android na specific handsets lang dahil sa maraming factors na dapat tingan katulad ng hardwares specifications, Manufacturer’s software policies at UI interfaces which is iba iba po sa mga android devices.
