Apple Releases iOS 8.1.1 With Bug Fixes, Performance Improvements for iPad 2 and iPhone 4s

After two weeks of testing, Apple has released iOS 8.1.1, a minor update that includes several bug fixes. Apple first seeded the iOS 8.1.1 beta to developers on November 3.

iOS 8.1.1 is available immediately as an over-the-air download. Apple has also released new Apple TV software and an update to OS X Yosemite, OS X 10.10.1.

According to Apple's release notes, iOS 8.1.1 includes bug fixes and increased stability and performance improvements for both the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4s, two of the older devices that support the operating system.

iOS 8.1.1 may offer several bug fixes, but as a minor update, it does not bundle in any of the major new features that are rumored for iOS 8, like improvements to Maps and split-screen multitasking for the iPad. These updates may come in iOS 8.2 or iOS 8.3, both of which Apple is rumored to be working on.

Fantastic that Apple still cares about people who bought the 4S in 2011. Android OEMs would have abandoned such users years ago.

Don't know why everyone's complaining... iOS 8.1 has been pretty darn smooth for me.

I hesitated to download it right away. You took my trust away Apple, after 8.0.1. :p

Performance Improvements for iPad 2 and iPhone 4s

So I guess 8.1.1 downloads and installs iOS 6?

Updated. It's currently crashing every 10 secs, Siri is cursing at me, and iMessage is sending porn to my family. I should have known! Apple has really had trouble with their bug fix releases lately.
