Rumour has it that the eagerly awaited iOS 8.1 will be with us in precisely 17 miniutes! The upgrade from a disappointing and rather underwhelming 8.02 (but not, at least, a disaster like 8.01 - which was pulled just an hour after its release!), iOS 8.1 contains further bug fixes and additional features that will work together with Mac’s new version of OS X (Yosemite) to make working between your Mac and your iOS devices a much more integrated experience, termed ‘Continuity’.
Start working on a document or email on your iMac and carry on where you left off on your iPhone or iPad… Answer your iPhone on your Mac or iPad… Automatically use your iPhone as a Personal Hotspot if you find yourself outside of a Wi-Fi area with your Mac Book Pro… Now having multiple Apple products really comes into its own and the way we work with them will be much more efficient and much more fun. Well, that’s if there aren’t any teething troubles!
Over the next few days I’ll be checking out all the new features and writing about the best ones on Master Your Mac.
Well, my screen is telling me I was right! So I’m off to grab the upgrade (along with, I imagine, rather a lot of other people). It might take some time. ;-)
