Apple Releases iOS 8.1.1; Better Performance On Older Devices

The release comes almost a month after the release of iOS 8.1. As per the release notes, the focus is on bug fixes and performance improvements for older devices such as the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.

The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 can technically run iOS 8, but the performance isn’t what you would call spectacular. Most noticeable, animations, some load times and overall responsiveness on the latest OS fall behind where those devices were on iOS 7.

In addition to updating iOS 8, Apple also released an small update for OS X Yosemite, dubbed OS X 10.10.1, which supposedly fixes Wi-Fi performance and a few other issues.
