Apple already testing major iOS 8.1, 8.2, 8.3 updates

Here is a slight secret : no company releases software that's bug free. It is almost an impossible task. The very best you could hope is the company should have identified many of the bigger bugs, and gets working over a fix as fast as they possibly can. It's like Apple is requried to be made by that track, because evidence is showing major iOS 8. x updates already in testing.

Apple already testing major iOS 8.1, 8.2, 8.3 updates

We already knew that there could be an iOS 8. 1, because each version of iOS has gotten some major update. The interesting part of the news is Apple is reportedly also testing iOS 8. 2 and 8. 3. Previously, only iOS 4 received two major updates after its initial release (ending on 4. 2. 1). These version numbers are actually confirmed through the visitor log from 9to5Mac, which shows devices running iOS 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3 visiting the web page recently.

You will find a couple possibilities when interpreting these details. First, the evidence of iOS 8. 2 and 8. 3 could be meaningless. Second, 9to5Mac posits that Apple could be moving towards a far more continuous update cycle, much like OS X which usually gets about 8 updates within the year between version changes. This would allow Apple to repair and add features more quickly, however it sounds to a small degree out of every character for iOS. Not even Google does that with Android.

Our theory is really a twist on the very first idea. We wonder if maybe iOS 8. 2 and 8. 3 won't actually exist, but those numbers are increasingly being used at the moment as Apple works out fixes for giant issues with iOS 8. For instance, maybe the devices running " iOS 8. 1 " are focused read more about improving the performance, devices with " iOS 8. 2 " are focusing on Wi-Fi and security issues, and " iOS 8. 3 " is targeting Apple Watch features. But, once all the problems are sorted out, maybe the very first two be packaged together as iOS 8. 1 as the main bug fix update, and when there is an iOS 8. 2, it is really a feature release to compliment the Apple Watch.

Whatever is going on, it might be a few months before there are any major update to iOS, so we will just have to stay an eye out.
