iOS 8 hasn’t had its best start. With the whole iOS 8.0.1 debacle, and a plethora of bugs in the initial iOS 8 release, it almost seems like iOS 8 was rushed to the public.
A new report from iClarified suggests that Apple may be ready to send iOS 8.1.1 to the public. iOS 8.1.1 has only had one beta of the operating system. The site says Apple plans to release this version anywhere between November 12 to November 21.
Just got back from work and we were told in a meeting today that a public update to 8.1.1 will be distributed within this week. Just a heads up to us Apple Associates for common troubleshooting scenarios we might come across from our customers. I advise you to update to 8.1 now as the window looks to be closing very very soon.
UPDATE 8:30PM EST Nov. 11:
Updated info from large work group email, expect 8.1.1 anytime from the 12th – 21st
It’s possible that Apple may be preparing the second beta of iOS 8.1.1 to developers. This is the first time in history that Apple has released a beta to an iOS x.x.1 update. So, there’s really no indication when the company may release this software update.
This news will also be important to jailbreak users. As this software release will break the recently released jailbreak, made by the Pangu Team. If you’re looking to jailbreak, now is the right time to update to iOS 8.1 if you haven’t done so. Luckily, we have a handy tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 8-8.1 with Pangu for Mac and Windows.
