Apple has released iOS 8.1.3 – the latest incremental update of iOS 8. In this upgrade, users will find that there has been a giant reduction in free space needed to install updates in the future.
This issue proved detrimental to the update of iOS 8 when it was released back in September, and likely contributed to a slower than expected uptake of the new operating system.
iOS 8.1.3 also fixes a handful of issues with FaceTime, Spotlight, and iMessages.
The update is available now via the Settings > Software Update on the iPhone – or if preferable, and users still don’t have enough space to upgrade, it can be updated via iTunes.
