Apple Just Released A New iPhone Update That May Solve One Of The Frustrations With iOS 8

Blog Post

Apple's iOS 8.1.3 update is now available for the iPhone, and it fixes one of the issues many iPhone owners protested about when iOS 8 was initially released. 

The new update reduces the amount of storage required to install software updates on  iPhone. Apple previously required that users have at least 5GB of free storage on their iPhone or iPad to successfully download and install iOS 8.

It seems that Apple has addressed that issue shortly after it was with cited with a class-action lawsuit for not properly informing users how much space its software requires on devices.

The rest of the updates and patches are fairly small, as you can see in the full list of bug fixes below. To update your device, click on the Settings menu, select General, and choose Software Update.

This release includes bug fixes, increased stability and performance improvements, including:

  • 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 which prevented multitasking gestures from working on iPad
  • Adds new configuration options for education standardized testing.
