    Doesn't it feel weird to have a x.1 release 1 month after release of the device?

    I'm optimistically hoping it brings some x.1 fixes we've come to love and need from past iOS versions. Not just the numeric boost because of apple pay..

    Not when they have major core features that aren't available yet. I believe this has happened in the past to were a .1 update was released shortly after major release to add some minor features that were promised in the keynote.

    I can't remember the exact release, but I remember a few where the update was a week or less due to severe bugs. So this quick update doesn't surprise me in the least since 8.1 will enable SMS with Yosemite and ApplePay.

    good points!

    forgot about Continuity, too afraid to update my 2011 mba to yosemite. Haven't tried since DP2 though.

    still on 10.9.2 :D

    There's not gonna be a GM, and the public release will probably be out today.

    I've been thinking that also, maybe there wont be a GM due to the fact that Apple doesn't want to give away the new features to developers and also this being a X.1 probably no need for a GM.

    I think it has a better chance to be out today than Monday or over the weekend.

    I know this question has probably been asked but I searched the forums and am having trouble finding it so if someone can answer this, thank you in advance. If I have 8.1 beta 2 installed, can I update OTA to the GM or public release depending on which one gets released?

    I did read some chatter on this forums that the 7.1 Beta last year was presented with an OTA to the final version.

    I hope it comes out today! I had iOS 8.1 beta on my iPhone 5. I now have the iPhone 6, and can't recover from backup because it says I have an older iOS version. I registered my UDID yesterday, and it's still processing! :(

    Yep guess that gives them some time to rework the health app from the blood glucose issue that came out yesterday.

    Wonderful. I leave for a week on Monday, I'm running 8.1 Beta 2 and will want to update to the public release, which means I have to take my MacBook AND my work laptop. :(
