Apple iOS 8.1.3 Update



Sit down, connect to Wi-Fi and back up your phone: it’s time to update. Apple on Tuesday released iOS 8.1.3, introducing a slew of new big fixes, enhancements and other new updates.
This is very incremental in nature, which means you shouldn’t expect a completely new experience. What you can expect, however, is a much smoother, stable experience—and hopefully one that doesn’t crash and break every few minutes.
Today’s update to iOS 8.1.3 is available for all devices running iOS 8, including the iPhone 4s and up, iPad 2 and up and the fifth generation iPod touch.
According to the “Learn More” tab of the update, iOS 8.1.3 includes:

  • Reduces the amount of storage required to perform a software update
  • Fixes an issue that prevented some users from entering their Apple ID password for Messages and FaceTime
  • Addresses an issue that caused Spotlight to stop displaying app results
  • Fixes an issue which prevented multitasking gestures from working on iPad
  • Adds new configuration options for education standardized testing.


With iOS 8.1.3 out, Apple is likely moving its attention to iOS 8.2, which we’re expecting to include support for the Apple Watch.
The iOS 8.1.3 update contains bug fixes, stability enhancements and performance improvements. Among the new features, it reduces the amount of storage space required to perform a software update.

The update can be downloaded by going to Settings > General > Software Update. The download size of iOS 8.1.3 is 246MB.
Apple users with 8GB and 16GB devices will definitely appreciate the reduced storage requirements for updating to iOS 8.


In addition to bug fixes, iOS 8.1.3 also includes a number of security improvements which can be viewed in detail on Apple's security page for the update.

Apple is also preparing to release OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 beta update, which contains a patch for the Thunderstrike vulnerability that allows malware to be injected into Macs via the Thunderbolt port.
