Apple will roll out iOS 8.1 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch on Monday, October 20. The timing fits with the launch of Apple Pay, which needs the update so iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users can make mobile payments at participating retailers.
iOS 8.1 available for free on Monday
Along with Apple Pay, iOS 8.1 will include other compatibility improvements for iCloud Drive and OS X Yosemite.
iOS 8.1 will be a free update and will require an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch capable of running iOS 8.0.
