Finally! No more deleting more than a Gigabyte of stuff on your Apple device just to install a 44MB update. Apple has just released the iOS 8.1.3 update today, and finally, has reduced the required free storage space on your device in order to perform the update.

iOS 8.1.3 now available

The iOS 8.1.3 update does not really bring a lot of significant features, the usual “increase in system stability and performance”, a few bug fixes, and includes a few fixes for issues found in FaceTime, iMessages and Spotlight. While the most significant addition to iOS brought by this update is the reduction of the free space needed to perform future iOS updates.

Here are the changes included in the iOS 8.1.3 update:

  • Reduces the amount of storage required to perform a software update
  • Fixes an issue that prevented some users from entering their Apple ID password for Messages and FaceTime
  • Addresses an issue that caused Spotlight to stop displaying app results
  • Fixes a problem that prevented multitasking gestures from working on iPad
  • Adds new configuration options for education standardized testing

You can download the update on your PC or Mac via iTunes or you can update your device over the air.

    And ironically this update requires 1gb+ of free space.
