iCloud Photo Library

At today's Mac and iPad event, Apple gave us a sneak peak at iOS 8.1, which is rolling out on Monday. Some of the big features we can expect are the return of the Camera Roll, an official launch for iCloud Photo Library, and full support for Apple Pay in the US for all iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus customers.

After iOS 8 launched in September, many users were confused about the disappearance of the traditional Camera Roll and Photo Stream interfaces. Although photos weren't gone, and simply moved to the collections tab, it seems as if Apple is willing to bring them back. Part of this could be due to the fact of making it easier to differentiate what photos and videos are actually using physical storage and what are using iCloud Photo Library storage, which will also come out of beta as of iOS 8.1. That means that whatever iCloud storage plan you choose, you can use as much or as little as you'd like to offload photos and videos, in turn freeing up actual physical storage.

As for Apple Pay, if you live in the US and own an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 8.1 will enable the feature for use at over 500 retailers as of October 20th.

There's still a ton more news coming out of the iPad and Mac event, so stick around!
