Apple releases minor iOS and Yosemite updates

Apple have just released iOS 8.1.1 and OS X Yosemite 10.10.1.

Apple is continuing their efforts to make their latest operating systems as bug free and stable as possible with these latest updates.

iOS 8.1.1 was first seeded to developers on November 3rd so it has been in beta testing for two weeks prior to its release today, which will hopefully mean that the update doesn't come with huge problems like 8.0.1 did.

Apple hasn't really said all that much in the update's release notes, just stating that the update brings more bug fixes and performance and stability updates for the iPhone 4s and iPad 2.

"This release includes bug fixes, increased stability and performance improvement for iPad 2 and iPhone 4s."

The tech giant also released OS X Yosemite's first update since its launch in last month.

Like 8.1.1, OS X 10.10.1 has also been in beta testing for two weeks, but developers have had two betas seeded rather than just one.

There seems to be quite a few significant improvements in this update though compares to iOS. Apple's release notes state the update brings Wi-Fi, Mail and remote computer improvements.

"The OS X 10.10.1 update is recommended for all Yosemite users. It improves the stability and compatibility of your Mac. This update:

- Improves Wi-Fi reliability

- Improves reliability when connecting to a Microsoft Exchange Server

- Improves reliability sending Mail messages when using certain email service providers

- Improves reliability when connecting to remote computers using Back to My Mac." 

The biggest gripe that came along with OS X Yosemite was that it seemed to make Wi-Fi on Macs extremely flakey, so this update should certainly fix that issue for all users.
