Snippet: Apple Releases iOS 8.1.3 ☇

Shared on January 27, 2015

Available via the Software Update feature on iOS, this update seems to vary in size (weighing in at 247MB on my iPhone 6, 136MB on an iPad 2), and includes the following:

  • Reduces the amount of storage required to perform a software update.
  • Fixes an issue that prevent some users from entering their Apple ID password for Messages and FaceTime.
  • Addresses an issue that caused Spotlight to stop displaying app results.
  • Fixes an issue which prevented multitasking gestures from working on iPad.
  • Adds new configuration options for education standardized testing.
