With 8.1 in the works does that mean we won't see the frequent small updates anymore like 8.0.3, 8.0.4 ect, and now have to wait longer for all the bugs to be sorted?

iOS 8 is a mess for alot of people waiting ages for much needed bug fixes if this is now being the case is unacceptable I think.

No update was going to come until Mid-late October. What does it matter if it's called 8.1 or 8.0.3?

If Apple discovers a major but in 8.0.2 that needs to be fixed before 8.1 is scheduled to be released, then it's certainly possible that we might still see an 8.0.3, but I think it's pretty unlikely, especially if 8.1 really is going to be released at the end this month.

They need to bring out 8.0.3 to fix Bluetooth in the car. Quite a lot are getting it and a lot of us need it. But in reality, I think it will be a massive bug fix update which enables Apple Pay and maybe a couple of other new features, but mainly bug fixes.

Ages? Has it even been a month?

Who cares what it's called? iOS 8.1 will contain bug fixes and add new features that did not arrive in time for 8.0. At the very least, you know that an update will likely accompany the new iPad release this month.

Last year, the 4th version of iOS 7 arrived in mid-October. It was called iOS 7.0.3.

This year, the 4th version of iOS 8 will likely arrive in mid-October. It will be called iOS 8.1.

Last year, it took 2 1/2 months between iOS 7.0.4 and 7.0.5. With iOS 6, the first update didn't arrive until November. Is that what you're referring to when you talk about "frequent small updates"?
