We had been hearing that Apple was working on a new incremental software update for iOS and today it has finally landed. A few moments back Apple started rolling out iOS 8.1.1 for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. The new software brings a host of performance improvements and bug fixes which will certainly make it worth your while if you jump on iOS 8.1.1 as quickly as it drops in your region.

In the changelog for iOS 8.1.1 Apple notes that users on all supported devices who update to this latest firmware will get the usual slew of bug fixes and performance improvements. It also mentions that this update will improve performance on two old iOS devices, the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.

It is not uncommon for old hardware to have problems with new software. iOS 8.x is probably the last major update that is released for these two devices so it would only serve Apple’s interests if the latest software on those old devices performed as well as it does on newer models.

As always the update is being rolled out over the air. You will receive a prompt on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch when the iOS 8.1.1 update arrives for your particular device. Those who are jailbroken on iOS 8.x. should hold off on updating the firmware because it hasn’t been confirmed as of now whether or not iOS 8.1.1 patches the exploit used by Pangu iOS 8 jailbreak tool.
