iOS 8.1.3 released: Here’s what you Need to Know

Apple recently released the next version of iOS 8, the 8.1.3. Now those who are familiar with how new software updates go, you can be pretty sure that all the known latest bugs and loopholes are fixed in by Apple on the latest software update and that also means fixing the jailbreak on the Apple devices. So if you are the regular user who uses the stock version if the iOS and loves to get the latest goodies at the earliest can jump on and install the latest update from Apple. But for all the others who are considering, please read on for more information.
 

You will lose your jailbreak

iOS 8.1.3 patch jailbreak
Apple has totally sealed off the jailbreak with the iOS 8.1.3, so if you happen to update your phone, you will lose your jailbreak and that mean you will have to wait for quite some time until either of the TaiG and Pangu team gets a jailbreak for the 8.1.3 version. So our recommendation, stay on iOS 8.1.2. But if you are one of those unlucky silly who accidently have updated your iPhone out of sheer curiosity, apparently it is still possible to revert back to iOS 8.1.2 using iTunes, but you might have to rush before time runs out.
 

Frees up storage

iOS 8.1.3 is small in size
Apple in their released statement mentioned that iOS 8.1.3 actually required lesser memory in your phone, so that means you can get a bit more extra storage space available on your phone after all. This is good news for the 16 & 32 GB users who already have quite a storage limit on their devices.
 

Bugs have been fixed

Yes, that is what the entire update was all about. You won’t find any cosmetic changes with this update but there are definitely bug fixes in the latest build. Also Spotlight and other multitasking functions have been fixed and tweaked apparently if the changelog is to be believed.
 

Lose out on MovieBox and PlayBox

Even though these two apps work on the stock iOS 8 non-jailbreak devices, but the currently iOS 8.1.3 has with some fixes, introduced some bugs in the system as well, though we are sure that it is just a mistake; still unacceptable one for the Cupertino giant who prides in perfection. So if you are into these two apps and don’t want to lose out on those, then it is better if you stick on to the 8.1.2 version as of now and can later upgrade when either the bugs have been fixed or else a jailbreak has been made available.
 
So all in all iOS 8.1.3 update is a good update for the regular users, but for the jailbreak community and its users, it has created a whole set of issues and sent all the developers back to their desks working and finding out fixes and new jailbreak for the latest available software update. We hope to get its jailbreak sooner than later.
