iOS 8.1 launches on Monday; here is what you should expect
Apple iDevice users are looking forward to Monday,
when they can download and install iOS 8.1 on their iPhone or iPad. The
update will help correct some of the bugs that have been afflicting
users of iOS 8. The most talked about new feature coming with the new
build is Apple Pay. This is a mobile payment system that allows you to
use your NFC enabled Apple iPhone 6 or Apple iPhone 6 Plus to tap a pad near the point of sale at a participating retailer, to make a payment.

The
update will also bring back the Camera Roll, which had been removed
with the release of iOS 8. At the same time, the iCloud Photo Library
will be available so that you can save all of your pictures and video to
the cloud. The feature ties in to your iCloud account and uses your
available iCloud storage space. A smaller version of the pictures are
stored on your iOS device, in order to use up less memory.

Another
new feature, Instant Hotspot, requires a Mac with OS X Yosemite, to
turn on the hotspot feature of an in-range iPhone running iOS 8.1. With
SMS relay, iPads and Macs can receive SMS messages routed through an
iPhone. While the Mac and Apple’s tablets can receive iMessages, SMS
messages have been limited to Apple’s smartphones.

Among the bug
fixes that iOS 8.1 will fix, is one that makes it difficult for an
iPhone to pair with a Bluetooth device. While the update is expected to
be disseminated on Monday, Apple has not yet released a time when we
will start seeing notifications pop up on iOS devices.
