As promised, Apple has released its iOS 8.1 update, which brings back the much-missed Camera Roll, enables Apple Pay on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices and adds support for sending text messages from your Mac. With iOS 8.1, you can test the iCloud Photo Library beta.

You can find the 117MB download in the Software Update settings on your iOS device. Apple first announced iOS 8.1 last week at its iPad and Retina iMac event.

iOS 8.1 also includes a number of bug fixes for Messages, WiFi, Bluetooth connectivity, screen rotation, Safari and accessibility.
