Apple on Wednesday issued a new build of iOS 10.1.1, the current version of the iOS 10 operating system. The update is minor enough that it did not warrant a full 10.x.x number change, but it does include an updated build number.

The new build has been labeled “14B150”, whereas the initial iOS 10.1.1 build was labeled “14B100”.

This new build is only available as a download from Apple’s servers and cannot be obtained over-the-air at this time for those who have already installed the first version of iOS 10.1.1. The new version of iOS 10.1.1 will likely be provided to those who have yet to install iOS 10.1.1, as it otherwise requires an iTunes connection to download and install.

Analystics firm SimilarTech’s platform tracks over 30 billion web pages each month with Apple Pay coming in as the fifth most popular payment platform used by the top 10,000 websites. It maintains the fifth position among the top 100k websites, too.
