The iOS 8.1.3 release has been made public. It weighs in at 136Mb (on both my iPad and iPhone). Apple faced a massive backlash over space requirements for iOS updates, this update fixes that, you no longer need gigabytes of free space, however it does take some time to complete the upgrade. On my devices, it took around 11 minutes to prepare and install the upgrade, and another 7 or so minutes to download it in the first place.
Here's a list of fixes that this update addresses:
This release includes bug fixes, increased stability and performance improvements, including:
* Reduces the amount of storage required to perform a software update
* Fixes an issue that prevented some users from entering their Apple ID password for Messages and FaceTime
* Addresses an issue that caused Spotlight to stop displaying app results
* Fixes an issue which prevented multitasking gestures from working on iPad
* Adds new configuration options for education standardized testing
