Apple Inc Seeds iOS8.1.1 Beta for Developers

Apple Inc Seeds iOS8.1.1 Beta for DevelopersIt seems that Apple Inc is not yet done with releasing updates for its iOS 8. The giant technology firm has rolled out its first iOS 8.1.1 beta aimed at developers. There is no word yet as to when a version of it would be released to consumers in general.

It can be recalled that the company already rolled out two updates to iOS 8 in the past months—iOS 8.0.1 and iOS 8.0.2. Those were aimed at providing quick fixes as well as improvements. Apple even released iOS 8.1, which was a major update to iOS 8. It also brought about bug fixes and new features, which include Apple Pay capability for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and support for SMS Continuity.

What to expect from iOS 8.1.1

According to sources, iOS 8.1.1 should not be considered as a major update for iOS 8. That is because Apple is reportedly working on major updates like iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.3. So what would that update be? According to reliable sources, iOS 8.1.1 would bring about performance improvements specifically to older iOS 8 devices.

This would particularly cater to the many users of iPhone 4S as well as iPad 2, who have been complaining lately about setbacks to their devices’ performance following their upgrade to iOS 8. The release would come with bug fixes and would bolster performance and stability for such identified devices so that users would not anymore feel being left out.

What more to expect

From here, what should be expected in general? Sources claim that with the release of the first beta version of iOS 8.1.1 especially to developers, we may expect a general roll out of the program to more supported devices on iOS 8 in the foreseeable future.

By the way, Apple has also seeded other operating system updates. There is also an Apple TV beta update that targets developers as well. Never to be missed out is the beta version of the OSX Yosemite 10.10.1 update. All these could now be accessed on the developers’ level.
