How to get the new iOS 8.1 update from Apple first

Many are wondering if the new update will fix issues they are having on their devices

As Apple fans over the world wait with bated breath for another iOS update that will hopefully fix problems from Apple’s last two botched updates, many are wondering when they will be able to update.

If you just can’t wait to install it, read on.

Many users of the iPhone 4S have reported poor performance with Apple’s last two updates, and are hoping that this update can help. When Apple updated iOS 7, users of older devices were pleased to find many bugs and issues had been fixed.

Well don’t worry, here at Nextgen FM and our friends at RazorianFly, we’ve got you covered.

Check out this handy chart to figure out what time you can expect to download the new iOS update. Those in the U.S. will be among the first to get their fingers on the new update. Users on the west coasts of the United States, Canada, Mexico and countries in South America will get it as early as 10am Monday. Those in Hawaii will have it even earlier by 7am!

The chart times are based on previous releases of iOS software.

Keep in mind the fastest and easiest way will be to connect your phone or device to your computer and launch iTunes and install the update by wire. This way you won’t have to free up space and at the same time make a backup before installation. Just keep clicking that update button and see if you get lucky. Millions of others will be doing the same.

Thanks to RazorianFly for this chart. Give them a shout out and head over to check out some of their exclusive Apple content.

    I wouldn’t say “botched” it sounds so negative and makes you appear bitter. Like ” I hate Apple, their stuff is so expensive!”

      Thanks John! The first update had many problems! Let’s hope 8.1 is the magic we are hoping for!

      I have to call a spade a spade, and I appreciate the hard work from the Apple team!

      I appreciate your comment :)
