Apple launched a new version of its mobile operating system that will introduce the company’s first stab at a payment processing service.

The iOS 8.1 update enables support for Apple Pay, which will be available fully on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Apple Pay will also be available on iPads for in-app purchases.


The update also includes a beta version of the iCloud Photo Library and the return of the Camera Roll album in photos.

Also, several of the new features tied to operating system OS X Yosemite, launched last week for Macs, will now appear, including Continuity, where users can start a project on one device and quickly pick up on another.

The update requires 2.2 GB of storage to download and install straight from your device. Users can also download the update on their PC or Mac via iTunes, then apply the update.

The last big update for iOS 8 was rocky, knocking out cellular access for multiple phones and prompting Apple to immediately pull the update and replace it with a newer upgrade.
