It’s a minor update, but it might make a difference.

Per MacRumors, Apple has released iOS 8.1.1, a minor update that includes several bug fixes. Apple first seeded the iOS 8.1.1 beta to developers on November 3.

iOS 8.1.1 is available immediately as an over-the-air download or through iTunes and includes bug fixes and increased stability and performance improvements for both the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4s, two of the older devices that support the operating system.

iOS 8.1.1 may offer several bug fixes, but as a minor update, it does not bundle in any of the major new features that are rumored for iOS 8, like improvements to Maps and split-screen multitasking for the iPad. These updates may come in iOS 8.2 or iOS 8.3, both of which Apple is rumored to be working on.

Over on MacRumors, user “Cardsnk” reported the following issues with the update:

“This is truly incredible. The issues of WIFI and Network have not been fixed at all.

1) Console filling up with the same errors.
2) Network Connection STILL drops MORE than it did before
3) Right After update – I had NO internet connection at all…

Had to run the exact SAME routine Fixes I had been running since the early developer previews….”

If you’ve installed the update and have any feedback to offer, positive or negative, please let us know what you think the comments.
