In an odd break from tradition, Apple appears to already be hard at work on the next three major upgrades to its iOS 8 operating system for iPhones and iPads. After recently releasing iOS 8 and iOS 8.0.2, Apple is simultaneously working on the next three major updates, iOS 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3,according to a report from 9to5Mac.
Starting with iOS 5 in 2011, Apple has released a major new iOS version each fall and a notable follow-up update early in the following year. For example, iOS 6 launched in September 2012 and was updated to iOS 6.1 in January, and iOS 7, which was launched in September 2013, was updated to iOS 7.1 with CarPlay and interface improvements in March 2014. But starting with the recently released iOS 8, it appears that Apple has a different development schedule for 2015 and perhaps beyond. According to sources, Apple is already hard at work on three major follow-up versions to iOS 8: iOS 8.1, iOS 8.2, and iOS 8.3.
