The upgrade to iOS 8.1.1 may have repaired several of the much more ludicrous and upsetting bugs that iOS 8/ 8.1 had actually managed to introduce, but it additionally has one undocumented perk that will no question prove very helpful to those carrying iPhones and iPads with merely 16GB of internal storage space. Despite the fact that several have stated that they still need massive amounts of vacuum in order to install iOS 8.1.1, lots of have located that when they have actually undergone the entire update process they’ve been entrusted more space compared to when they started.
