Apple Releases iOS 6.1.1 To iPhone 4S Devices [Updates]

Ads by Google

Have you dealt with iPhone connectivity, battery life, and heating issues after the iOS 6.1 update? This has been a common complaint among users since Jan. 28. However, since Apple released its iOS 6.1.1 to users on Monday, your worries may soon fade away.

The update is currently only available to iPhone 4S device users with claims to fix an issue that impacts the smartphone’s cellular performance and reliability. No mention of the battery life and overheating issues are addressed in the update details. Users can download iOS 6.1.1 over the air using the Settings application or from this direct link offered by 9to5Mac.

The beta version of iOS 6.1.1 was reportedly released to developers a week prior to its public release. In addition to Apple’s recognition of the cellular performance and reliability issues, the company announced that the update will add new improvements to Apple Maps for Japan. Apple said that the beta version will be altered slightly upon public release:

“iOS 6.1.1 beta will be renamed to a different version with the next developer release. [It] will include the fixes included in the public release of iOS 6.1.1 in addition to the improvements to Maps for Japan.”

Did you experience problems with your iPhone after updating to iOS 6.1? If you are an iPhone 5, iPod Touch, or iPad user, how do you feel about not being able to download the update? Do you believe Apple will address the other more pressing issues in the future? Why do you believe Apple released the update only for iPhone 4S?

    Upgraded iPhone 4s to 6.1.1 and all phone numbers are missing in every contact.
    How do we get phone numbers back?

    I live in Thailand’s iOS 6.1.1 update, but feel that it does not intend for it to be managed better. But it does not change at all.

    I updated my iodine 4s yesterday to the new is 6, 1 software and now the phone is completely unresponsive!, the touch screen is not working

    I would recommend waiting a couple to weeks, to see if there are any major issues with this update. That is what I am going to do with the 2 iPhone 4 phones the kids have. It is a much safer option.

    Wish I hadn’t got an iphone 5. battery life is miserable and it gets really hot after five minutes.,
