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.

Cool downloading this on my ipad mini 3 as we speak. But will hold off on my iphone 6 Plus. Have to see if they fixed the jetsam event (low memory) issue.

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

So, how much snappier is Safari?
In all seriousness though, does it fix the bug where manage storage crashes when you try to delete all the music on the phone?

I have both a 4s and an iPad 2.

They're not kidding that these devices have been hamstrung by iOS8.

Hoping these do indeed improve performance.

It's so sad that people are hesitant to update these days before reading reviews because since iOS 7 updates tend to bring more bugs than fix them.

With a 6+, should I care for this update?

I'm wondering the same. I'm holding off because I'm absolutely loving my battery life (just plugged it in for the first time since Friday), and don't want to prematurely install this and give that up.

Can anyone report how this affects battery life, if at all?

Please let this fix Safari. Please.

*Update. Sadly safari is still a bit quirky on iPad mini 1st gen. Was hoping since the hardware is similar i would see a miraculous fix. No such luck as of yet.
