Users of older iPhones can now get more out of iOS 8

iPhone users by now are wary of downloading new iOS updates on older devices, but Apple has today released an update that should make you a little less scared of switching to iOS 8.

While the iOS 8.1 update was a major improvement that added Apple Pay and brought the Camera Roll back, today's iOS 8.1.1 revision isn't quite as significant - unless you're an iPhone 4S or iPad 2 user.

You may be living in the past, but Apple wants to throw you a bone anyway, as the new update apparently makes iOS 8 run more smoothly on those fossils.
