Apple Is Testing iOS 8.1.3 software update

A week ago Apple released iOS 8.2 beta 2 to developers wit bugs fixes and improvements. However, it looks like that the company is already working on a minor iOS 8.1.3 update, that has started appearing in server logs.

 iOS 8.1.2 was released a week back with bug fixes and improvements, and Apple appears to be working on a similar minor update to fix other issues. The server logs suggest that Apple will release another iOS update before iOS 8.2 gets released publicly. iOS 8.2, which is currently in beta, adds support for the Apple Watch, and WatchKit.

MacRumors reports:
The first sign of iOS 8.1.3 from Apple appeared in our logs December 8, just a day before the company released iOS 8.1.2 to the public to patch a minor issue with disappearing ringtones and deliver other minor bug fixes. A day later, Apple seeded the second iOS 8.2 beta to registered developers.
The number of hits from iOS 8.1.3 remains low, numbering just a few dozen in total from Apple’s networks. A view of overall traffic from iOS 8.1.3 devices shows a clearer upward trend aside from a weekend dip, based on a much larger sample size.

 These stats have proven to be reliable in the past, and while they can be faked easily, increasing iOS 8.1.3 traffic from Apple certainly lends authenticity to these numbers. A definite launch date isn’t known yet, but it’s likely that iOS 8.1.3 gets released only after the Holiday Season.
