Apple Releases iOS 8.1.1 Beta to Developers for Testing
Apart from seeding the new beta of OS X Yosemite 10.10.1, the guys from Cupertino on Monday released iOS 8.1.1 to developers for testing. The update comes two weeks after the official release of iOS 8.1, which contained the support of the recently-launched mobile payments service called Apple Pay as well as some bug fixes and stability improvements.
Yesterday's beta has a build number 12B432. According to release notes provided by Apple, iOS 8.1.1 can boast of a wide number of performance improvements and bug fixes for the older devices, namely, iPhone 4s and iPad 2.
Earlier, many users and software experts hoped that this update will include some notable improvements, for example, split-screen multitasking mode for the iPad or tweaks for Maps app. Looks like Apple plans to add such serious changes to major iOS 8 updates, not to minor ones.
If you have a developer account, you can download the latest iOS beta from Apple's Dev portal right now. However, I don't recommend to install the new version on the iPhone or iPad you use every day as it may turn out to be quite unstable and glitchy.
