iOS 8.1.3 Download

If you have a reasonably new iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, today is your lucky day. Forget about the blizzard ravaging the East Coast, Apple just released a brand new version of its iOS operating system to the public.

iOS 8.1.3 isn’t the major update we’re expecting when iOS 8.2 is finally released, but it does clean things up a few things behind the scenes. Also of note, the update requires less free storage to install, potentially making it available to many more users than previous versions.

Apple just made iOS 8.1.3 available as an over the air (OTA) update, just as BGR’s Jonathan Geller said would be the case. The update will also soon be available as a download through iTunes.

As for compatibility, you’re looking at the same device list we’ve seen since iOS 8 was first released, of course — iOS 8.1.3 will work with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, fifth-generation iPod touch, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad Air, iPad mini 2, fourth-gen iPad, iPad mini, third-gen iPad, and iPad 2.

Do you have one of the devices listed above? It’s time to open your Settings app and tap General > Software Update.
