The first 5GB of photo storage is free (this is apart from the default free 5GB you get with your iCloud account). Above this limit, you will have to pay $0.99 per month for 20GB, $3.99 per month for 200GB and so on. Tiers available only up to 1 TB.

Besides this, iOS 8.1 will also feature updates to the iWork suite.

As a word of caution: whenever Apple releases a new firmware update, it’s best to wait a little while (a couple of days or more) to check out how the update has panned out for other users. Sometimes, huge issues crop up.

That’s it!
