Apple to Release iOS 8.1.3 Ahead of iOS 8.2 with Support of Apple Watch
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, the guys from Cupertino have recently begun testing iOS 8.1.3 actively, which indicates that ahead of the public release of iOS 8.2 with the support of the long-awaited Apple Watch early next year, we may actually see one more iOS version containing stability improvements and bug fixes.
The work on iOS 8.1.3 was first spotted by MacRumors reporters about a week ago. Since that time, the number of 8.1.3 users accessing this website has grown immensely. It should be noted, however, that Apple hasn’t yet seeded the latest update to developers and that the company is very unlikely to do this in the near future.
While Apple is actively beta testing iOS 8.2 with developers well in advance of its public launch in order to provide tools for building Apple Watch apps, it appears there will be at least one more minor software update before iOS 8.2 launches to the public. Over the past week, MacRumors has seen an increasing number of devices from Apple's networks and in general that are identifying themselves as running iOS 8.1.3, likely another bug fix update.
A possible date of the release of iOS 8.1.3 is the beginning of 2015. Still, since this date hasn’t yet been officially confirmed and announced, I suggest that you should take this piece of information with a few pinches of salt.
