Downloading and installing now. I'm all for anything that will improve stability.

So, no new features, just stuff that should have been ironed out in betas and "just worked" from the beginning. :D

Edit: Except that new configuration thing, but that doesn't count. ;)

It was a 2.05 GB update for an iPhone 6 Plus (via iTunes). The update proceeded normally. Still have cell signal after the update!

The update to 8.1.3 was immediately recognized by iTunes. My last update from 8.1.1 to 8.1.2 resulted in iTunes telling me that an update to 8.1.2 was available immediately after 8.1.2 had finished installing on my iPhone.

I would like to know how much less storage space is required to perform an OTA update (the first bullet point on Chris's list). The previous requirement was "up to 5.7 GB of storage space, depending on iPhone model."

Anyone get an insufficient space to perform OTA update error message displaying the exact amount of space required?

I thought the 5.7 gb was needed for a major update like 8.0. Do they tell how much one needs per update?

You may be right—I may be crazy. That particular figure came from an article on updating to iOS 8.0.

No problems with the OTA update. I don't see much different but then this is a minor update. Took about ten minutes and I was back in business.


If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!

Maybe my memory is really slipping, but the text of the notes list in the Notes app seems to be larger than before the update. I checked it in Accessibility, but it's set the same. Nothing else looks larger. I use my Notes app quite a bit. Does anyone else notice any difference at all with the Notes app list? I'm on the iP 5.

My battery was down to 25% last night, after installing day before, I usually only get near 50% after a full day. I hope the software's just settling in.

Got a new 6 plus yesterday. Came with 8.1.2. After the OTA update, it was stuck in Headphone mode. There was never any headphones plugged in to the iPhone every. Could not get it out that mode. Returned it for a replacement.

This is a common problem you can typically fix yourself. Usually, plugging in and removing headphones several times in a row will fix it. If not, a restore should. Did you or Apple try this?

I tried all the above myself. I did the compressed air, plug and unplug headphones, hard reset and full wipe; nothing worked. This thing was brand new and never had headphones plugged in. Not was it in a pocket to get dirt or lint. Had to be hardware because after a restore to factory settings, it didn't work.

It's fine to delete it once you've installed it. They used to auto-delete after the install. I would try rebooting first and see if that cleans it up.
