Apple mobile device owners may be pleased to see a new update rolling out to their devices sometime soon starting today. Apple just started pushing out a new OTA update of iOS which is version 8.1.3. The update is relatively minor, but for those affected by the minor bugs, it should be appreciated.
Here's a quick breakdown of what is fixed or added:
This update was small enough from Apple's perspective that it was not seeded to developers before being released to the public. The only thing which is obviously missing from this update is that it does not address the recently discovered "GMT bug." This problem causes calendar syncing issues and time zone confusion for some iOS users.
- Fixed an issue which prevented some users from entering their Apple ID passwords for Messages and FaceTime
- Fixed a bug that caused Spotlight to stop displaying app results
- Fixed a problem that prevented multitasking gestures from working on the iPad
- Reduces the amount of storage space required to perform an iOS update
- Adds new configuration options for education standardized testing.
Of course, Apple is currently working on a fix for that issue and it should show up in the next update. We will keep you posted, so stay tuned!
