iOS 8.1.1 Beta 1

Apple has released the first beta of iOS 8.1.1 to those participating in the iOS Developer program. The update arrives as build 12B432 and is said to include multiple bug fixes, as well as performance improvements for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. Being a minor release, it is unlikely that iOS 8.1.1 will include any new features.


iOS Developers can find the iOS 8.1.1 beta 1 IPSW files available to download on the iOS Dev center website. The iOS 8.1.1 beta build is compatible with all devices able to run iOS 8.1, including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 and 5C, iPhone 4S, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, and iPod touch 5th generation.

iOS 8.1.1 beta 1

There is no known public launch timeline for iOS 8.1.1, thought is typical for iOS beta builds to go through several beta versions before a wide release.

On the Mac side of things, Apple has released the first developer build of OS X 10.10.1, which also emphasizes bug fixes. Additionally, a beta build of Apple TV software is available on the iOS Dev Center.

    I hope this update will resolve the battery drain in iPhone 6 plus! I was happy when I first got the iPhone with iOS 8 – the battery life really amazed me – but the dismissal of the notifications was buggy too. However, ever since i’ve updated to 8.1 I’ve hated my iPhone! The new update fixed the notification problem (YAY) but the battery remains the same!

    Can’t apple fix two things at once? Do they have to ruin one thing to fix the other?

      I feel your pain. I’ve got the same thing going on with my iPhone 5s. Fixing bugs is always a pain in the arse. Hopefully, they’ll have all of the holes plugged this time. Crossing my fingers. :)

    Does anyone know if this finally fixes the music playcount stacking bug? Mind-boggling how they managed to break such a basic feature.

  3. ChuckBlack says:

    8.1.1 reportedly breaks the IOS 8 Jailbreak.

  4. Trevor says:

    You used to be able to turn the camera light off in lock screen with a simple tap of the camera icon but now that doesn’t work now which is a shame.

  5. Bobi Perry says:

    It would be nice to also fix the battery drain in the iPhone 5s!!

    Same problem My iphone 5 battery was great on ios 7.1.2 but when i updated to ios 8.1 i noticed very fast battery drain i see my battery going dead in front of my eyes i hope apple will fix it soon

    I would like to have back sms delivery receipts….

    iOS 8 has ruined my 4s with excessive battery drain (3x more) and seems to run invisible processes in the background which chew on the cpu. It’s the impression of an operating system that doesn’t consider the 4s older hardware at all. If 8.1.1 doesn’t fix this I will never trust Apple again because iOS 8 has been a fair stuff up from the outset for almost anyone with an iphone

  10. Daniel says:

    Note: I have all background updates turned off, disabled all features beyond phone function and sms, and have replaced the old battery. I still watch my battery percentage count down each minute or two of use in real time. Stand by time remains strong, with drain only occurring when the operating system is engaged (pointing power drain squarely at the os, no excessive drain was ever encountered on iOS 5). I currently have little faith Apple will solve this. I dare them to prove me wrong.

    This stupid update RUINED my 4s. It shut off imessage, and when i try to go into settings and turn it on again it freezes. I can’t use the call app, facetime or messaging in general. PLEASE TELL ME IM NOT THE ONLY ONE HAVING THIS PROBLEM!

    I updated my I-Phone 4S by mystake and what a mystake ! First I do not like the new graphics; these do do do anything for me. But also, the phone is now unbelievably slow, power hungry and packed with bugs. Yesterday as I needed a GPS I discovered that Maps does not work anymore. Would anyone knows if it is possible to return to the previous IOS I had on my I-Phone 4S as this was functioning rather fast and well. I have to take delivery of an I-Pad but this bad IOS which wrecked my I-Phone 4S makes me wonder if I should have bought something else…
