iOS 8.1 is coming on Monday, will bring Apple Pay and Continuity support

Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior VP of software engineering, has just announced that iOS 8.1 is coming soon, and will bring Apple Pay compatibility in tow for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. It’ll also bring back the Camera Roll, which should be good news for iPhone users who miss that feature when it was taken away before. Additionally, those who update to the new firmware will get access to the public beta of iCloud Photo Library, which gives you the ability to access the full resolution of all your photos and videos without any downscaling.

The big news though, is that iOS 8.1 will finally bring Continuity compatibility to the party. That means that you’ll be able to make and receive texts and phone calls from your Mac (it needs OS X Yosemite for this, of course). There are also other neat tricks, like the ability to hand off email from your Mac to your iPad, share Keynote slides, and getting online with your phone’s cellular connectivity via Instant Hotspot.

And if all of that sounds intriguing to you, well good news: iOS 8.1 will be coming next Monday.
