Have Your Login Info Ready
Installing the iPadOS 14.8.1 update on your device might prompt you to input your Apple ID/iCloud account details and your passcode.
Most of you will know these by heart, but if it has been awhile since you've had to login, or if you're installing iPadOS 14.8.1 for someone else, you'll want to make sure you have that information readily available when you fire up the installation.
There's also a chance you'll get logged out of some of your first and third-party apps and services once the installation completes. Make sure you have this login info handy as well.
If you want to get the iPadOS 14.8.1 installation done as quickly as possible, make sure you've tracked all of this information down.
