Apple releases iOS 8.1.3 update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

iOS 8.1.3 fixes bugs and reduces the storage space requirement for installing updates.


Apple is currently rolling out iOS 8.1.3 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The update isn’t a big one – the most notable change it brings is a reduction in the storage space required to install a software update, a move made by the Cupertino giant in order to address the recent fiasco where many users were forced to make space on their devices to upgrade to the latest version of the OS.

iOS 8.1.3 also fixes a couple of bugs. These include an issue that was preventing some users from entering their Apple ID passwords for Messages and FaceTime, a bug that made the multitasking gestures on an iPad to stop working, and one that caused Spotlight to stop displaying app results. The update no doubt fixes a few other things and improves performance, but none of it was major enough to make it to the changelog.

As usual, the latest version of iOS can be downloaded from the Settings » Software update menu. iOS 8.1.3 is supported on the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini, iPad Air, iPad mini 2, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, and the fifth-generation iPod touch.
