Apple has delivered an update for iOS 8 to developers, as the tech giant manoeuvres itself into position to fix the slew of problems that have beset iOS users of late.
iOS 8.1 is currently being put through its paces. The update is due to bring Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payment solution, to phones in the United States.
Perhaps more importantly, though, Initial reports suggest that it will also fix chronic Bluetooth connectivity issues that have stricken iOS 8, as well as a host of other failings such as dropped Wi–Fi connections and lost documents in iCloud Drive.
Just yesterday, Apple revealed that only 47% of iOS devices are using iOS 8. The same percentage are still using 2013’s iOS 7. It’s believed the slow adoption rate is due to issues with iOS 8.0.1. and iOS 8.0.2.
iOS 8.1 is expected to be available to users around October 29th, the same predicted date for the launch of Apple Pay.
