Apple releases iOS 8.1.3 reducing storage required to update

The storage issue was a particularly persistent complaint among Apple's mobile device users, many of whom who were met with messages saying they didn't have enough free space on their iPhone or iPad to update.

The previous release of iOS, version 8.1.2, arrived in early December, also a minor bug and security fix. That update addressed an issue that could cause users to lose ringtones purchased from iTunes.

The next major release of Apple's mobile operating system is expected to be iOS 8.2, which is currently in beta for developers. The iOS 8.2 pre-release builds include Apple's WatchKit tools, required for developing applications to run on the forthcoming Apple Watch.
