On September 17th, Apple made the final version of iOS 8 available to all users, who could then install it on their compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Shortly after, they released iOS 8.0.1, which was withdrawn due to the problems it generated in some devices and now we have the update to iOS 8.0.2 available. But the thing does not stop there, since Apple has just made available to the developers iOS 8.1 Beta 1 , the first test version of the next operating system update.

It is common for Apple to work in parallel on more than one version of iOS at a time. In this case, while working on iOS 8 they would also be immersed in the development of iOS 8.1 , because as we told you this morning, Apple could release up to three major upgrades of iOS 8 during 2015 before iOS 9 is released.
