Talking tech since 2003

A new version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, has been released to users in an effort to fix a few bugs that have popped up since the launch of Apple Pay on iPhones and iPads. Similarly, a new version of OS X for Mac computers has gone out with similar intentions to fix problems – though it seems that while the mobile update is going okay, OS X users are still having issues.

TechCrunch today reports that iOS 8.1.1 will improve “overall stability” in the wake of the Apple Pay launch. Additionally, older iOS devices like the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 – which are both capable of running iOS 8 but have had trouble with the new operating system – should start to work better. So far, it seems that iPhone users haven’t had a repeat of the issues that plagued them when the first update to iOS 8 rolled out a few weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Apple also released OS X 10.10.1, which, according to a post on 9to5Mac, has “seemingly failed to address the WiFi problems some users have been experiencing since upgrading to Yosemite.” One user quoted in the post said that his Mac running Yosemite is “still randomly dropping [WiFi] every few minutes or so. […]10.10.01 does NOT fix the Wi-Fi issues. I had to go thru the same extreme routines I have had to go thru the past 2 months to be able to connect to the Internet.”

That’s annoying, to say the least. However, the good news is that Apple is usually not content to let users suffer at the hands of shoddy software for too long. That means that OS X users who are still having problems will hopefully see relief before too terribly long.

Anyone out there having issues with OS X or iOS 8? Let us know in the comments.
