Apple event featured a long portion on recent software and the highlight of that was the announcement of iOS 8.1. Apple Pay is, of course, the headlining feature but there's more.

Apple has changed how apps are handled – users can now check the permissions required by third-party apps and they can be disabled individually and re-enabled later.

Also, Camera Roll is coming back after a brief absence in version 8.0. The other enhancement of the Photos app is that the Recently Added section now shows your full history, not just the last 30 days of photos. Photos can be viewed in full resolution too, no downscaling.

There are some subtle changes too, like the ability to turn off voice dictation in the keyboard, bigger icons for widgets and a recent iBooks icon.

The recent iOS 8.1 will start seeding on Monday, October 20.
