Apple has just released a major update to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices running iOS 8. The new update includes a slew of much needed bug fixes, including a promised fix for WiFi connectivity issues some users have been experiencing since iOS 8 launched, but the big addition iOS 8.1 brings is the highly anticipated Apple Pay feature.

Apple Pay, first revealed at the iPhone 6 announcement event, is a new payment system allowing users to securely store and use their Credit Cards on the iPhone 6. This is not only a more secure way of using a credit card, it saves the hassle of digging through your purse or wallet for loose cash to pay for a purchase quickly.

Bank of America has already pledged its support for Apple Pay and today many official iOS apps including the apps for Target and Staples have been updated to support Apple Pay as well.

The 8.1 update is out now for all iOS 8 compatible devices, but for right now only the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus can use Apple Pay. Apple has also promised support for Apple Pay is coming in the Apple Watch when it releases next year.

The update can take up anywhere from 85-125MB of space to download, and can require as much as 2.6 GB of free space to install without a PC or Mac.
